Nana Mouskouri dresses are offered at auction

Singer Nana Mouskouri, who is celebrating her 60th career, will auction several pairs of her famous rectangular glasses, 200 stage dresses and as many fashion accessories on June 19 in Paris in favor of the Fondation des Hôpitaux de France, she announced.

“Time flies. I always had a project to do something with my stage outfits, which are sleeping a little in my closets. I met Brigitte Macron [présidente de la Fondation des Hôpitaux de France, NDLR] and I offered to sell them for a good cause,” said 88-year-old Nana Mouskouri.

“These dresses have accompanied me at important moments in my life as a singer around the world. With them I experienced great emotions from the audience,” added the singer, who has just released Plaisirs d’amour, a complete collection of 440 tracks recorded since 1963.


Among the stage outfits in the catalog for this charity sale are a dress by designer Per Spook for Louis Féraud in the 1970s, a pagoda sleeve shift dress by Jean Paul Gaultier and an embroidered chiffon dress by costume designer Mine Vergès.

Shoes, hats and belts will also be auctioned. The 400 lots will be on display at the Sabine Bayasli Gallery in Paris from June 14th.

Nana Mouskouri, who has sold almost 400 million records in ten languages, released her ultimate studio album in 2018.
Forever Young, featuring covers of major standards including Hallelujah, by Leonard Cohen, Say When You’re Coming Back? by Barbara and In the Ghetto by Elvis Presley.
