Yannis Tseklenis born in Athens in 1937. He worked in the family business of textile trading. At the age of 27 he succeeded his father and experimented on designing textiles, creating a school for many designers in Greece and abroad. In 1961 he established the advertising company “Spectra”. In 1967 he started the design of complete fashion collections and created the “boutiques Tseklenis”. Yannis Tseklenis was the pioneer in the organisation of the great Greek Fashion Show in 1970 and he has struggled for the development of a production unit in Greece targeting in Greek exports. In 1972 his collection was sold in 30 countries. Since 1991 he is occupied with other creative forms (interior designing of public transport, hotels and conference centres).
