Passion for 17th Athens Xclusive Designers Week


17th Athens Xclusive Designers Week took place in Athens from 28th to 30th of March 2015, where 31 Greek designers and international brands presented their unique collections and designs.

 A highlight was the 12 new talents who showcased their creations for the next winter presenting their own trends: Fotini Baka, Leon, Aris Antoniou, Maison Anna Dorothea, Dimitrios Ordoulidis, Tryfonas Modestou, MK by Marios, Georgia Margariti, Dimale, Chris & Tonia, Euphrosyne Vlassi and Aziina. The young artists showed their promising collections impressing the audience and the jury of the institution of New Designers Awards, claiming three awards: Best New Designer, Best Trendsetter and Best Catwalk. The awards ceremony of New Designers Awards was presented by two representatives of the new generation of presenters and fashion icons, Alex Kavdas and Mary Retsina.
Due to my busy schedule I only managed to attend a couple of shows on Sunday 29th of March with my friend Vicky from Style – Rules. One of the Collections that we saw was presented by the new talent Chris & Tonia.
Chris Stratikopoulos has an academic background in economics however having the experience of running 4 retail shops and a large number of wholesale shops, the last two years have inspired him to create his own collection. His partner in design Tonia Varveri has completed her fashion design studies at IEK DOMI and Zer-Farm as a patroness and designer. While working alongside her mother Aggeliki Varveri who is also a fashion designer, Tonia was inspired by the tailor made pieces. Designers’ brand Chris & Tonia created a collection which is so féminité highlighting unique tailor made clothing with the aim to re-launch the absolute feminine side of a modern woman.

We also ran into Fotini Kostouli who is the designer behind the Aelia jewelry. She was exhibiting her works of art during the 17th Athens Xclusive Designers Week. Until next time. xoxo ES
