In the beginning, Ladydust was in fashion as lyrics say in famous Suede song. View an album with around 670 shots of her in terms of all that, here.

★★★★★★★

So Nietche had said smth really wise in his lifetime. That in music, the passions enjoy themselves'. (Well, especially in rock n' roll, Ladydust would add by laughing - in the broader & definitely philosophical meaning of the word..

This is the initial reason why she studied music for some years, (2 years of drums & 1 of electric guitar & music theory at filippos nakas music school) & why she also started playing music as a jokey, presenting in every corner of the world, her performances signing as Ladydust & as a parallel activity with everything else in her dusty life. In the process, she followed also for 6 months the 'audio' section of SAE music school.

'That weren't no dj that was hazy cosmic jive' declare Starman's lyrics right?.

So far, she numbers more than 600 dj sets, plenty festivals along with popular names of the international music industry such as the Orbital, Daniel Miller, Tricky , The Get Well Soon , Steve Wynn, Dan Stuart, Sivert Hoyem, Craig Walker, King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard, Phil Shoenfelt, The Pierced Arrows, Mecano etc

She's been the main guest in major events such as the 'Denim Circus Exhibition' in Paris & has appeared in plenty other ones in other cities, like London, Bucharest etc. She's had common appearances all over different cities during her 15 years of touring so far, with dozens of bands (see menu: 'Dust Sets' for details).

She also hosts her own radio broadcast, called: 'Planet Ladydust', in which she presents fresh releases from the international landscape, but also shining diamonds from the pantheon & the past. (see menu: 'planet ladydust')

Planet Ladydust is a magical journey in the galaxy of music, containing in its evolution, short stories & messages of the book of Ladydust. (see menu: Ladydust -The Book)

Ladydust has finally been in charge of the music production of glamorous fashion shows, (some shown on Fashion TV channel), & has collaborated with big advertising companies by choosing the music for tv spots & campaigns of their clients.

In different circumstances she invested with her tunes from science conferences like the Elife Congress (under the auspices of the Hellenic Republic), to cultural events like this one for the Nobel awarded author Margarita Karapanou, (in terms of Athens as the world capital of litterature), or big charity events like the 360 Bazaar in Syntagma square.

★★★★★★★

Blanche Du Bois at the theatrical play 'A street car named 'Desire', said smth similar to Nietszche. She said: 'I don't want realism. I want magic! Yes, Yes, Magic! I try to give that to people.'

That's why Ladydust also chose acting. In fact acting, was her first choice back to the years after high school, & this huge time of absence that followed, had certainly created this need to spread more magic. Like Blanche.

So she did for some years studies with some famous coaches (to name a few: Bernard Hiller, Leon Herbert, Cosmin Chivu , Olga George & entered the hot game.

The last years found her either in starring or in cool guest roles in international movies such as: Portable Life (NL), Receta (CA), Tere Mere Darmiyan (IN), The Final Pay Off (GR) & enough more. Also with Oscar awarded directors like Guy Nattiv in the movie Magic Men (IL).

In addition she did starring roles on tv, (Heaven's Key ANT 1), theatrical plays, videoclips, (some shown in uk & us Mtv like Seal of Lilith), voice overs, audiobooks, tv spots & the starring roles in 20th Century's Fox: Rio, Rio 2, Ice Age 4 & Ice Age 5.

She's also been an executive producer in movies like The Penal Colony, which went to the short film corner at Cannes film fest, got awarded at Sydney & was in the selection of shortage fest and an assistant producer in the feature film ‘tere mere darmia.’ (IN)
Right now, she's being the official voice in the audiobooks of uk based On Time Books, which has already best sellers on Amazon.

She has additionally done some presenting, she has given plenty of interviews in magazines of her country & internationally, her mixcloud has so far dozens of thousands of listens, & she has a strong presence generally in the social networks around the globe as one of the oldest, most popular avatars born at the legendary period of 'my space'. She occasionally writes poetry & posts it on her networks.
