Being a successful Fashion P.R. guy for more than a decade ( has been awarded 3 times by DIESEL HQ for his PR competencies and performance ), has worked as event organiser for several alcoholic drinks and his major loving energy drink (and that's RED BULL) , has published fanzines and last but not least became the "it" party guy for Mykonos island.
Crisis hit him rock-bottom...no jobs...no money...a new decade was out there. In need to stay stylish he decided to create some clothes for himself since he had no money to buy new ones.
He remembers that day: laying at Elia Beach in Mykonos and watching people go by. He imagined a swimming trunk for both men and women divided in half by colors !... inspired by an infamous ice-cream from the 70's : his first piece was BORN and since he was in between so many sexy and important people , felt like he was on top of the world ! So SEXY TOP was his very first creation !
Second piece: his interpretation of the classic "Marlon Brando" biker jacket. Third piece : Black and yellow nylon trousers...tank-tops, shirts, and the list goes on and on. T-O-L-I-S Brand was born...!
