Dukas was born in Thessaloniki on 11th September 1975. He graduated from the American College, acquiring a Master’s degree in History of Art.
2003 was a very important year for the designer’s career as he created his first Shoes & Accessories collection, which contained Prêt-à-Porter products with vivid Haute Couture elements. They were instantly characterized as luxury items and became extremely successful, as they were adored not only in Greece but also in Europe and America. In the same year Dukas accepted an invitation from the “Camera Nazionale Della Moda Italiana” to participate in “Alta Moda”, a week of Italian haute couture and, more specific, in Fashion Calendar 2003, where 12 new talents from all over the world presented their collections.
The designer presented 15 pairs of Haute Couture shoes, which were characterized as sexy,
subversive and a total luxury from the international press and the international fashion crowd as well. Vogue Italia magazine after the show named the Greek designer as a “subversive fetishist”. The collection was also presented in many Greek editions of international fashion magazine such as Vogue Hellas, Elle, In Style, L’ Officiel, Madame Figaro, Marie Claire, Votre Beaute etc.
From the very beginning until now all Dukas Collection products continue to bear the signature Exclusively Made in Hellas. The collection is hosted at selected outlets and big departments all over Greece; Dukas is the only Greek Prêt-à-Porter label which is being sold along with other big international designers’ brands.
