Vassilis Zoulias in New York Fashion Week!

Αthens Xclusive Designers Week ‘exports the greek fashion with the debut of Vassilis Zoulias in New York. Under the exclusive cooperation signed by the international fashion week (AXDW) in Nolcha Fashion Week in New York, the famous fashion designer Vassilis Zoulias hold its fashion show in the Big Apple on Thursday 9th February of 2012. His collection is demi couture for Fall/Winter 2012 and its name is  ‘New Look New York’. In the terms οf Xporting Greek Fashion Globally, Athens Xclusive Designers Week gives the opportunity to Greek Designers to present their work abroad.

Με μεγάλη επιτυχία ολοκληρώθηκε η πρώτη επίδειξη μόδας του Βασίλη Ζούλια στη Νέα Υόρκη, η οποία πραγματοποιήθηκε την Πέμπτη 9 Φεβρουαρίου 2012 στο πλαίσιο της αποκλειστικής συνεργασίας που σύναψε η διεθνής εβδομάδα μόδας Athens Xclusive Designers Week με το Nolcha Fashion Week της Νέας Υόρκης. Ο σχεδιαστής παρουσίασε μία συλλογή demi couture, για την περίοδο φθινόπωρο/χειμώνας 12, με τίτλο «New Look New York». Η συγκεκριμένη συλλογή εξερευνά μια ποικιλία από παραδοσιακά υφάσματα, όπως κασμίρι, crepe marocain, σατέν duchesse, shantoung, ταφτά δουλεμένα με τις κλασσικές τεχνικές υψηλής ραπτικής. Ένας φόρος τιμής στις διαχρονικές εικόνες από τις πιο κομψές γυναίκες κατά τη διάρκεια της χρυσής εποχής της υψηλής ραπτικής. Μια εποχή που καθορίζει ακόμα τον τρόπο που βλέπουμε σήμερα το στυλ. Οι επισκέπτες της επίδειξης, είχαν την ευκαιρία να μεταφερθούν σε έναν άλλο κόσμο, στην αρωματική ατμόσφαιρα ενός "salon couture" όπου τα μοντέλα θυμίζουν «κακομαθημένες» ενζενί και άτακτες “grandes dames”.

In love

Give your look the edge with these color-pop three-tone sandals from Alexander Wang. In the softest leather and suede, and trimmed with perch, team this innovative style with skinny pants and a signal-orange bag for a directional urban vibe. LOVE THEM! WANT THEM! NEED THEM! :-)

Mary K for Topshop

After previous collaborations with designers including Christopher Kane, Jonathan Saunders and Michael van der Ham, at their SS12 press day last week Topshop gave us a glimpse of their most exciting collection yet, designed by Mary Katrantzou.
This collaboration (ready for launch in 17 February 2012) is not an accessible interpretation of the Katrantzou ideals, rather a literal translation of her designs, though with a far more reasonable price point. A Katrantzou original would set you back a cool eight thousand pounds; the Topshop alternative will only cost you £350, ensuring a piece from this collaboration will be a must for fashionistas worldwide.

Fashion Against AIDS

Safe sex is a message that each new generation needs to hear, which is why H&M is launching its fifth Fashion Against AIDS (FAA) collection, to raise funds and create awareness about HIV/AIDS among the young. Available in around 300 H&M Divided departments from 26th April 2012, as well as online, this year’s collection brings together ethnic influences from different continents. 
Special prints were commissioned from international artists and illustrators for this collection to create pieces bursting with colour, pattern and authenticity, and 25% of all sales will go directly to a variety of international youth HIV/AIDS awareness projects. So far, H&M has raised around 45 million SEK from previous FAA projects.

Whether it be colourful African trims on blouses and bustiers, graphic black and white Maori prints on leggings and crop-tops, or the folkloric Inuit designs from Greenland on draped T-shirts, this year’s FAA collection puts global tribes in a 21st century context. As well as macrame, fringed and dip-dyed pieces for girls and printed T-shirts and cropped harem trousers for guys, the collection also includes fashion accessories such as hats, footwearand jewellery, as well as special pieces such as iPhone cases, festival ponchos, hammocks and plasters.

Madame Shou Shou

I discovered a new Greek brand under the name "Madame Shou Shou", by Elina Kordali. The designer studied fashion design in Milan and Barcelona and last April launched out her first personal collection.
I really really loved her job!! Every piece has a feminine, girly and romantic touch and it's comfortable with sexy details.

Have a look! Am I right?
Don't pretend.
Don't lie.
Don't try without a reason, try only for yourself.
Life is such a nice game.
And the best thing is that you can play with your own rules...
So just smile, enjoy and wear whatever makes you happy.
Trust your own taste, because it's your own style!
And you know it better.., better than anyone.
