the style bar was founded in 2007 by Paris & Sydney-based stylist and copywriter, Athina Antarakis.

After 15 years spent honing her skills in apparel, interiors, cosmetics and accessories in the fast-paced corridors of Australian and international fashion houses, Athina started a blog as a way to write about her experience and personal take on style without the attitude and elitism for which the industry is so well known.

From its beginnings as a place for budding aficionados to learn about style and have their dilemmas addressed, the style bar has evolved into a space for Athina to share her observations, recommendations and ongoing adventures in style around the world.
