OUR STORY

So once upon a time in a town called Walthamstow in a city called London, Stella Taliadoros was born. 18 months later, out popped Antigone Taliadoros and so the story continues.

The two sisters were born into a family of crazy Greek Cypriots, who loved to eat food and dress them in random clothing. Stella often looked like a boy with picky curly hair and often spotted wearing socks and sandals. As the years went by, the sisters developed their fashion style and began using the word ´Ghetro´to describe it, as it was a little Ghetto and a little Retro. They used to wear tracksuits all day long, but over the years decided that this look was no longer working and needed to dress a bit more feminine. Tiggy even had a 'Ghetro' themed 18th.

So they used the word amongst themselves and with freinds and decided to spread the word to the world. They started blogging about fellow Ghetro peeps and Ghetro stuff. This blogging got better and better and they started going to events, meeting people and spreading the word. They interviewed up and coming artists, fashion and events and had a ball of a time.

One day someone decided to hack into their site and post rubbish on it so that everytime somone went onto their site evil things would happen. Soon afte,r Google decided to block their site and all their hard work had to be scrapped and their site had to be started again! A few months later the sisters made a new site with new and fresh Ghetroness and spreaded the word once again!

Peace and Love to all the supporters stay funky and fresh and Ghetro.

Raleigh Ritchie

  There once was a time when British new comers were dominating the UK music scene, then it vanished. It has suddenly popped up again with a huddle of youngsters such as Ella Eyre, John Newman & Sam Smith who all have amazing talent, but it all sounds samsey these days.  There once was a time when I had all the time in the world and I used to sit and look for new music- then I got a job!…

CALISTHENICS – New trend

Sooo, have you heard of Calisthenics??   Do you want to get fit but hate the gym? Well then Calisthenics is the way forward! We were first introduced into the world of calisthenics when we were in Miami May last year. We met a group of guys from New York that were involved in a team called Barstarzz. We were in a bar (one that involves music and alcohol) and they started throwing their business cards all over the place….
