Celia Kritharioti SS17 X Orama Elpidas
Impressive, spectacular and outstanding – a collection that left the audience speechless and their mouths opened in awe.
Celia Kritharioti’s Haute Couture collection, spring/ summer 2017, took place at Stavros Niarxos foundation – the first to ever take place there and the first show after a long while for the famous designer. Celia Kritharioti is used to showing her creations to fashion weeks the main one being in Paris the previous January, but this time she returned to her roots, her country, with a collection that had us all dazzled.
Flapper style short – rather revealing and sexy- dresses, diamond details, a lot of lace and embroidered patterns that gave a very deep and prominent elegance not only to the designs, but also to the models who were lucky enough to wear those classy pieces. Creations that manage so elegantly to hug the feminine body and fit like a second skin on the models figure.
What was really interesting is that the staged catwalk where the models paraded on was very simple, nothing extravagant, not a spectacular construction to gather the looks from every guest present. Obviously, Celia Kritharioti knew that she didn’t need a mind blowing construction to cause a havoc, she left that to her creations. Who noticed the scenery when Celia Krithrioti’s models walked down the staged catwalk stairs wearing all those incredible made pieces? I’ll tell you, no one.
At the same time, equally elegant, classy and maybe a bit modern, were her wedding gowns. Wedding dresses with volume, lace, in pastel colors and modern touches – those gowns had everything a modern day bride wants and needs.
This Haute Couture spring/summer 2017 line by Celia Kritharioti sure was consisted of very beautiful and sparkly creations.
