Here I present you backstage photos of the participants at this year’s Madwalk, Dimitris Petrou, NatarGeorgiou, DeuxHommes, Sotiris Georgiou, Madame Shoushou, Stelios Koudounaris, Apostolos Mitropoulos with the jewelry of Mimika Ciboyianni and Konstantinos Melis by Laskos.

Just a quick drop to show you some backstage photos from last night’s “Idiosyncrasy” fashion show, of Konstantinos Melis by Laskos.
I’m overwhelmed with joy and satisfaction for last night’s Ozon Fashion Flash Spring-Summer 2013.
Somf and Digitaria were the designers that participated in a special fashion presentation, accompanied by the live music of Rattler Proxy (for Somf) and Melatonini (for the latter). Me and Christos Alxandropoulos, together with the two Somfettes, Mariaflora and Olivia, had been brainstorming for the last ten days regarding the presentation, the styling and the creative direction of the whole, and I want to believe that the final outcome was quite good.
I utterly enjoyed every moment of it (especially the song part -GOD!) Special thanks to Dimitris Sarantou with Moroccanoil, for taking a good care of the hair and make up of our girls.
Jean-Paul Gaultier fashion show was a party, an ode to music stars!
Disco balls and colorful headlights warmed us up of what was next and “Kiss” at the front row was another hint.
Models came out dressed as Grace Jones and then the music changed to Eurythmics “Sweet dreams” and multiple Annie Lenoxes appeared -and then changed again and black models came out as sexy Michael Jacksons under the matching soundtrack. Dancers were giving their own show at the back while gorgeous girls were parading as Charlotte Gainsbourgs, Madonnas, Boy Georges, Sades, Catherine Ringer and David Bowies,
in perfect alignment with the soundtrack!
The finale was dedicated to Amanda Lear playing herself and the show ended with the dancers and Jean-Paul running down the catwalk in laughs, overloading the guests with party vibes!
I have also taken a couple of videos but you have to wait for those a bit, dear fashion junkies.
Waiting 50 minutes for the Maison Martin Margiela fashion show would be ok if it wasn’t for the conceptual suffocating temperature inside the mansion. As if the weather wasn’t hot enough, all the walls at the Hotel Salomon de Rothschild were covered in white plastic
- the outcome was intolerable but gorgeous.
Minimal as always, high waisted pants, straight lines, volumes in unexpected places, leather pieces
and organza gowns were the highlights of the collection.
Absolutely THRILLING music: The minute those spooky voodoo voices started, I got goosebumps.
Find the finale and the soundtrack below.

The name of the artwork given with the invitation of Givenchy fashion show is “Sirene” and was designed by M/M Paris (2011), in a limited edition of 1000 copies. The world of water has been the inspiration of Riccardo Tisci for next summer, showing some beautifully tailored sexy clothes and gigantic shark-teeth hanging around the neck. The show opened with Natalia Vodianova and ended with Gisele Bunchen. very few photos, battery went to sleep.
for April Crichton, the new creative director,who designed alongside Nathalie Rykiel the first Sonia Rykiel collection, yellow is the color of next spring, in a 20′s context. Models walked down the vibrant yellow catwalk while Queen were singing the “Bicycle Race”. Low waisted skirts and tight little sweaters, pleats and crepe-de-chine. Our beloved Rosanna Georgiou appeared second on the catwalk and i almost cheered!
when i feel like a twelve-year-old and play with my fashion-junkie friends “which top model you’d like to be” -if i was to reborn as a top model that is, a dream highly likely to come true one day- i always think of Raquel Zimmermann and we all agree. Raquel Zimmermann is one of THE top toppest of top models ev-ah.
Having been working for over a decade with the most important people of the fashion industry, the Brazilian top model is still taking our breaths away. Born 28 years ago in Rio Grande do Sul, Raquel is a skateboard rider and a quitar player as well. She belongs in the great family of Viva Models Agency in Paris, measures 84-61-88 and is the dearest model of the iconic photographic duo Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin.
The last three months Raquel has appeared in editorials for Vogue US, Vogue UK,Vogue Paris, W and was the cover girl of Vogue Brazil and Korean W, too. She has this magnificent talent to always transform herself, and that’s another reason why she features in five F/W 2011-12 advertising campaigns -Lanvin, Jimmy Choo, Yves Saint Laurent, Alexander Wang and Juicy Couture. Furthermore, Raquel recently left the Top50 rank of models.com to enter 16th at the Top Icons list of all times.
i’m always very excited to see young greek faces walking down the catwalk of fame. Sweet Rosanna, the beautiful 16 year old girl i worked with, together with photographer Christos Karantzolas, was just about to start her modeling career back in October. four months later and Ros is one of the very promising new faces of the industry: during Paris fashion week she walked, amongst others, for Celine, Sonia Rykiel and Dries Van Noten!
Go Ros Go!
