Christos Garkinos is a world-renowned purveyor of fashion and all things luxury. For over 25 years, Christos has been at the forefront of the luxury resell market. Prior to his accession onto the fashion scene, Christos held executive positions with The Clorox Company and Disney and was an integral part of the launch of Virgin Megastores.
In 2000, Christos redefined the designer resale market by curating the closets of the world's most fashionable women and offering them to women who may not otherwise be able to find such luxury items - garnering him the moniker of "The Robin Hood of fashion. "
Christos has been featured in prestigious publications such as The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. He is also an on-air personality that has covered the red carpet for Access Hollywood and The Today Show. In addition, he starred in Bravo Networks' "The Dukes of Melrose," which focused on his life and love of fashion. The show's success led to a clothing design deal with the HSN Network, where his line, "Eureka by Christos Garkinos," was one of the most successful launches in the company's history.
In 2018 Christos took his show on the road with a traveling luxury and vintage trunk show, "Covet by Christos," bringing curated fashion and luxury items curated for each city and town, reinforcing his reputation as the Robin Hood of fashion.
Always ahead of the curve, Christos saw the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic shutdowns as an opportunity to retailor his business. Understanding that Instagram Live was a way to connect with his customers on a personal level and a selling tool, he launched "Live in the Closet with Christos," under the umbrella of Covet by Christos, a live shopping channel to connect with clients around the globe. Christos says, "We have pioneered a new way to shop for pre-loved luxury goods and have created an online community of thousands. I awake each day in total amazement and gratitude." Christos has hosted over 3000 guests on the show, offering the crème de la crème of new and pre-loved designer brands and luxury products.
In the last year, Covet by Christos has blossomed into a full-fledged network, producing more than 3500 hours of live programming featuring over 50,000 luxury and vintage items and garnering more than 2 million views. “Live in the Closet" streams seven days a week for 5-8 hours per day in 10 countries and includes several new hosts. "Live in the Closet" is the preeminent nexus in live streaming.
