Celia Kritharioti will be signing the entire look of the Cyprus entry on stage in terms of costumes as well as all the tailor-made high fashion creations presented in the video clip of the song, which will be released on February 24.
At the same time, in Rotterdam and for her public engagements, Elena Tsagrinou will be wearing the creations of the Greek fashion designer that Vanity Fair named as one of the six couturiers in the world worth watching and for whom the British edition of Vogue wrote that her collection served to fulfill every couture fantasy.
