This is my father Stavros Melissinos with Jackie Kennedy Onassis outside our old sandal store, in Monastiraki. That was many years before we moved to 2, Agias Theklas St., in the Psirri area of Athens. Jackie, in this photo listens to my father as he talks to her about his poetry. She used to visit our area often, when she was still married to Aristotle Onassis. She got a a very minimalistic sandal style, whose straps formed the letter "T" and which eventually we named after her. It's the now famous Jackie O (Greek leather) sandal style.
