This collection includes garments and accessories from more recent years, with references to ancient and Byzantine art as well as to folk culture.

Noteworthy examples include creations by Greek fashion houses, inspired by Greek folk art and its motifs, traces and techniques, as well as garments and accessories created using costume remnants or where decorative embroidery and weaving have been incorporated.

The collection also includes representative samples of the Olympic Airlines flight attendant uniforms, which were designed in 1976 based on Sarakatsani motifs.
