Fashion designers. stylists, make up artists, photographers, singers and dancers, in a Madwalk frenzy last night. 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. More to follow pretty soon, plus a special feature of DeuxHommes, whom I had the luck to follow step by step during the preparation.
My love for DeuxHommes -not only for their work but also the designers themselves- is brighter than the sun ever since I first met them back in 2004. So when I was asked by Miss Bloom (you can read here the full article in greek) to undertake the full coverage of their upcoming catwalk show for Madwalk 2013, I thought this job had my name written on. This is just a first teaser of what to expect next week, a collection where delicate guipure lace meets with PVC and high-tech neon fabrics, in a game of depth and surface.
Devine, once again.
The latest fashion show of our sweet Vassilis Zoulias took place in Grande Bretagne Hotel and it was dedicated to his 10 years of creativity,
with his well-known retro style and his model friends -stars of modeling in the 90s-
rocking the catwalk in 50s couture frocks and adorned pumps.

Celia Kritharioti is one of the few couture houses in Greece, if not the only one. The precious beaded evening gowns and elaborated wedding dresses of the designer we know already. What I enjoyed most at her fashion presentation, that I attended a couple of days earlier than last night’s official press day, was the 40s silhouette and the full skirts, alongs with the stretch knitted bodycon dresses and the lush blue and green velvet.
Just a quick drop to show you some backstage photos from last night’s “Idiosyncrasy” fashion show, of Konstantinos Melis by Laskos.
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.
