Gotta hand it to them
Fashion Week Athens is once again upon us, the dates are official (mark your calendars for October 14th-18th everyone) and the posters are out!
The second poster in particular has caused many groomed brows to raise throughout the social media, due to the hand.
I'm wondering, is the choice of a man's hairy hand over that of an elegant female model trying to imply that fashion week should be more about the fashion designers' handicraft and vision, instead of the glamorous models who constantly steal the limelight away from the clothes?
Or is it supposed to be just a hand, no further semiotics?
*Note* that both images were borrowed from the Fashion Week Athens director Andonis Kioukas' Facebook profile, so one can only suppose they're both official and not some kind of unsolicited "fan art".
So what do you think?
UPDATE: According to Alecca Rox, the date has been changed to October 14-17 not 18, but the posters and the official site are yet to be updated.
