Olga Evangelidou was born in Athens in 1988. She is a graduate of the Visual Arts Department at the Athens School of Fine Arts (2006-12), where she continued her studies in the master’s program (2014-2016), with an Onassis Foundation Scholarship (2015-16). Between 2012 and 2014, she attended classes at the Fashion Department of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp. In 2011 she was awarded the first prize at the contest of New Fashion designers (Next Generation) at the 14th Athens Fashion Week. Dress plays a significant role in her work, as if it proves the existence of the imaginary characters she creates. Since 2017 she is a Ph.D. Candidate of the Theory and History of Art Department at the Athens School of Fine Arts and since 2019 she receives a scholarship from the Hellenic Foundation for Research & Innovation (“2nd Call for H.F.R.I. Scholarships for Ph.D. Candidates”). Her dissertation, under the supervision of the Associate Professor of European History, Ada Dialla, focuses on the history of dress and the beauty standards in the late 18th and early 19th century in the islands of the Aegean sea.
