Castellorizian Women’s Traditional Dress: A costume for all seasons 

This exhibition includes photos illustrating the unique dress culture of Castellorizo, which selectively assimilated elements from either the East or the West or both at once. Archival photographs, focusing on the period 1890-1965, will show the garments worn by women on Castellorizo over that period. The myths, charm and origin of Castellorizian dress culture will be enriched by audio-visual material, and a presentation will focus on the history, beliefs and customs of the women who wore them.

The exhibition runs from Tuesday 18 May until Sunday 23 May and is open 10am-1pm and 3pm-6pm each day. Entry is $10 for adults and free for children.
