A brief history of the promoter
BRAINSHOT is a streetwear label with an ethos that everyone is equal and able to use fashion as they wish, away from social constraints and ephemeral trends. Each collection features a unisex approach with relaxed silhouettes of all sizes to ensure that no one is excluded. What makes BRAINSHOT special however is the designer’s innate need for unique creation and the various ways in which she strives to achieve just that. In each collection, Elisavet Latsiou, invites different artists from the fields of photography, graphic design and music and together they produce concepts that can be translated into beautiful clothing and prints.
