Throughout their firm's long history, personalities of the global jet set have chosen to dress in the creations of Nikos and Takis. More specifically, Elizabeth Taylor, Linda Evans, Sofia Loren, Ornella Mutti, Joan Collins, Jackie Onassis, Maria Callas and Nana Mouskouri are among the international clientele of the firm. As the years went by, Nikos and Takis managed to maintain not only their creativity, but also high standards of quality; and so they have renovated an old 19th Century building in the Medieval Town of the Greek island, Rhodes. They turned a historic building into a beautiful hotel with luxury, style, and a warm oriental atmosphere. However, for Nikos and Takis there are no customers - only good friends.
