It was a lovely evening! I was really looking forward to the H&M Spring/Summer studio line to come to Greece,as I have seen pics and was super excited!
Although I was quite late for the event ( work took longer than I hoped) and missed most of the celebrities, I was quite lucky as by the time I arrived it was not crowded and busy at all, so I had all the freedom to move around in my own pace!The talented Vicky Kaya and her team from Fashion Workshop were very helpful and the night went on smoothly.
Sunday fun-day they say and as it was my mum’s birthday we decided to pay a visit to Athens flea market for some shopping and walking around. I have told you before how much I enjoy walking in these little street markets and browse people’s crafts. But today I made a great discovery..
It was just about to start raining. The streets were busy as people kept walking quicker and quicker. But as we were looking for a restaurant to eat something caught my eye. There was a girl standing behind a small table. She wasn’t like the rest of the sellers in the area. Dressed elegantly, wearing beautiful jewelry and smiling to everyone. I stopped by her table and was amazed. Beautifully handmade jewelry in many different designs and colors. The name was sparkling wishes and that is exactly what it was in deed!
Fashion week is a celebration of fashion,style and talent. It is a way for all the designers to present their work. But new designers deserve a chance to present their work too. Athens exclusive designers week is a great opportunity for new designers to show their work, compete and become well known to the general public.
This institution gives them this wonderful opportunity to do so.
For me being there is exactly how a kid in a toy store feels! I’m over excited, can’t get enough and love every second of it! So being able to do it in Athens, seeing such amazing new designers and meeting talented people is an even greater joy for me.
This year the AXDW featured among the new designers some already well known Greek designers – such as Atelier Loukia, Konstantinos Mitrovgenis, Kathy Heyndels and Makis Tselios- but also international ones! The highlight of this event for me had to be tonight’s one and only Cacharel, presenting for the first time in Greece it’s latest collection.
Greek fashion has nothing to be jealous of Milan or New York fashion weeks! So for the next for days in going to attend Athens Xclusive Designers Week and present to you with news and looks from amazing Greek designers, such as Loukia and Makis Tselios, as well as amazing up and coming new designers!
I will be twitting live from the runway ( follow me @kaysecrets_kay ) and of course I will post soon with pics and looks from the shows!
