Fringes, nice back details, interesting mix of fabrics and unusual combinations of prints were the main elements at Afroditi Hera's show.

Fellow blogger, designer and "Best Catwalk" winner, Ourania Kay presented her collection "Chapter One: Urgent Cases" at AXDW. Ourania had a concept and she stayed true to it. Ioannis Guia (who was one of her teachers in Paris) was sitting front row along with Dimitris Strepkos and Fenia Lambropoulou. At the end of the show we all agreed that we can't wait to see more from her.
Ourania's smile at the end of the video is enough for you to understand how much she loves what she's doing!

There are many reasons why I like Stelios Koudounaris' clothes. The main reason though is that every single piece he designs is totally wearable and simple but with details that makes it unique. Who doesn't like comfortable but good looking clothes after all?
Stelios once again used lightweight fabrics that looked luxurious but are at the same time practical. Khaki, beige, white and black were the main colors of the collection.
You know I'm not really into pants but these were beyond cool. Don't you think?
Love the shapes. New forms for the classic LBD and the outcome is very interesting.
Last but not least ladies and gentlemen (if there's any reading my blog), here is the vest (or whatever that is) that stole my heart. I'm officially in love.
More of the must-buy-asap vest in the following video!
Choosing the pictures that I should post was very hard since I liked every single thing Ι saw on the catwalk but I'm sure that the rest of the bloggers have done a great job as well so make sure to check their blogs too!

Last day of AXDW today and I found myself backstage with Stelios Koudounaris. The preparation of a show is very stressful but Stelios was relaxed and ready to rock. Here are some snapshots. The post for the show is coming soon.

The look. Dark lips and no eye make up. Loves it!

Vassilis Zoulias' shows are like a drug to me. I always end up dreaming of a world where all women are dressed up to the nines and I can never get enough. His last collection was no exception. Timeless, chic and beautiful, it had everything a girl could ask for. Needless to say I couldn't take my eyes off the dresses, shoes and bags.
Once again, though, the lighting was hideous so the pictures suck. Please forgive me!
The first time I spoke to Dimitris Strepkos about the new Celebrity Skin collection was at Dimitris Petrou show, a few weeks ago. The designer promised that it would be totally avant-garde and guess what! It really was. There were a lot of surprises as well. Celebrity Skin used white and shiny elements for the first time (of course you had a little preview when I was backstage at this photoshoot) plus the designers worked on men's and "baby" pieces as well. On top of that their famous friends made the show more special.
As for my personal favorites, I'd probably choose the beige&black ones. There's something very relaxing and interesting at the same time about this colour combination.
To be honest, I'm very sad because the pictures are not good due to the bad lighting, there was so much more I wanted to show you. I hope you will forgive me for that!
Alecca Rox was backstage so make sure to check her posts!

I really admire Ioannis Guia, I've said that before. After all, he has a very interesting view on fashion. He always uses the finest fabrics and his designs never fail to impress us. A few hours ago, I was lucky enough to see the designer and chat with him about his collection. As he told me his inspiration came from Africa, or to be accurate what he has in mind when it comes to Africa.
The clothes hug the body and the outcome is beautiful. I really enjoyed the fact that Mr Guia didn't use the usual African references but he played with the colours and the sihlouettes. Tropical green and Sahara-inspired beige were the basic colours of the collection although I also liked the blue and purple hues.
