New York City is alive during fall Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week 2013. Models, photographers, celebrities, and beautiful clothing brought to life catwalks throughout the city! Runways featured spring/summer 2014 collections.
In honor of fashion week, I attended a runway event featuring talented, emerging and established, Greek-American designers, showcasing their creations at Studio 450 in NYC. This duplex space was pumping with energy! A kick off cocktail hour, silent auction, great food, and music set the mood. The beautiful NY skyline was the perfect backdrop for an oooh so stylish evening…
Nikki Poulos, a designer appearing on NBC’s Fashion Star, began the runway event with great momentum, showcasing her vintage inspired styles, graphic retro prints, and bold colors. She specializes in resort and swim wear collections. Her styles were uplifting, energetic, and very stylish!
Stratton is a successful and established designer with a history at Barneys, House of Carolina Herrera, Albert Nipon, and FIT. Stratton, presented his timeless creations of graceful, structured pieces, which present as modern classics with a minimalist look. Simply beautiful!
New York native, Tatiana Raftis, presented her spring 2014 creations which highlighted “femme power”! This FIT grad has worked for designer Dennis Basso and designed runway accessories for the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. Her use of bold contrasts, bright colors, and alluring fit, create a “Diva” look!
Angelo Lambrou, an established South African designer, ended the runway event with dramatic flare! His evening wear incorporated fluid and tailored lines, and featured deconstructed, asymmetrical detail. Stylish elegance was portrayed in every gown, and his bridal gown finale was enchanting!
It was a wonderful evening of fashion, creativity, and artistic expression! Every fashionista’s dream!
