Fashion Week Athens SS2011 overview
Fashion Week Athens SS2011 ended last Sunday, here's what I'll remember from this season:
Once again this year (I believe we all remember last year's famous octopus) a sudden downpour created a small havoc. As I tweeted real-time, the rain got so heavy during the KRUG8 show that the electricians behind us were talking about a potential short circuit that could bring the power of the whole venue down. Not to mention, be potentially dangerous.
Fortunately, the rain stopped just before the show ended and the outdoors opening party started.
Unfortunately, the court, including the art installation by Oksana Mas, was already partially submerged in water.
Photo opportunity for some!
What else we'll remember other than the water?
The now famous hand, also wet from the rain.
Which after all this talk, got the photoshop depilation treatment in order to appear in the print posters.
And of course, the fact that this was the first year without Vassilis Zoulias, Christoforos Kotentos, Orsalia Parthenis, Yiorgos Eleftheriades, Dimitris Dassios and other big names of Greek fashion in the line-up, but with lots of new, promising entries.
The fashion season in Athens isn't over just yet...
Moving over to AXDW that starts today.
