Stay Gold event

The Vertigo Pool Club hosted the “Stay Gold” private dinner in honor of Jean Claude Jitrois, the well-known fashion designer who now has a room named after him at St George Lucabettus Hotel.

The event was a co-production of Méphistophélès productions Paris and of Ms Ada Iliopoulou and the LeSoleil Foundation.

With a view of the Acropolis and Lycabettus hill, during the haute cuisine 6-course dinner, the honorable guests from the shipping industry, the diplomatic corps and the business world enjoyed the songs of famous tenor Evangelos Giamouris, who flew from China exclusively for the event, following his performance with Bocelli. 

While the famous tenor sang with a background of the well-lit Acropolis, the visual artist, Thomas Iser, who collaborates often with Jitrois, was creating live an impressive dress on an installation signed Jitrois-Iser, which is to be offered for charitable causes.

The multi-awarded 5* Hotel St. George Lycabettus is an example of modern luxury and timeless elegance. Room211 was set to be dedicated to Jean Claude Jitrois and his 'Stay Gold' collection, photographed by famous photographer Rankin in London; a unique conclusion of the floor of the Greek fashion designers that occupies the second floor of the hotel. Gold is predominant in  the room, coupled with a few touches of blue, thus honoring the respective collection. Architect Ms Katerina Efthymiou of “Positive+Architects” designed the rooms as well as the suites. 

Thanks to Ms Ada Iliopoulou – Le Soleil Foundation and Méphistophélès Productions, the famous designer visited Athens and St George Lycabettus once again, this time for the unveiling of the room dedicated to him.

The guests included the President of the Piraeus Marine Club and Deputy Mayor on Cultural Affairs, Ms Eirini Daifa, Ms Kalliroe Apostolopoulou, Ms Marina Vernikou, Ms Marilia Vazaiou with Mr Makis Kasnakidis, Ms Gely Angelopoulou, his Excellency the Ambassador of Brazil with his wife, his Excellency the Ambassador of Algeria, Ms Domenica Tsopelogianni, Ms Popie Prevezanou, Ms Natalia Fourli, the LA-based film-TV producer Sean Presant with Maria Georgiadou and Alkiviades Tzortzoglou, Ms Eleana Svoronou, Ms Eleni Kostopoulou as well as many other friends and collaborators of the designer.

The following night, the party  carried on at Island where Mr Chryssanthos Panas together with Ms Ada Iliopoulou set an exceptional ambience for their famous guests, such as, among others, the Attica Regional Governor, Mr Giorgos Patoulis and Ms Marina Patouli, Ms Natassa Theodoridou, the LA-based film-TV producer Sean Presant, Ms Κelly Xini and Mr  Thrasyvoulos Kanaris, Mr Harry  Tsimogiannis, Ms Marilena Panagiotopoulou, Ms Vicky Chatzivasileiou, Mr Vlassis Cholevas, Ms Lia Kalkasina  and Mr Nassos Papapostolou, Mr Stephanos Stathakis and Ms Rena Flevaraki etc
