Founded in 1970 by George Gakis in the old commercial center of Athens, manufacturing mainly women's dresses.

It was the era of ready to wear and the company grew considerably. Encouraged of the success of the designs and realizing the opportunity to grow, our founder looked beyond our national borders to our neighboring markets in Europe.

By 1976 Gaki showed its first womenswear collection in Pret a Porter Paris, aiming to attract retailers in Europe. The success was overwhelming. Orders surpassed the manufacturing capacity for the season, with main department stores and mail offering catalogues in France and Germany showing strong interest. Over the next 30 years Gaki labels were featured in the most popular European retailers and across the world.
