Haute-à-Porter

Ι’m deeply touched and proud of my dearest Filep Motwary for taking things up a notch.
His latest project is none other than the fashion exhibition “Haute-à-Porter” at Modemuseum in Hasselt, Belgium, which he personally curated. Through an immense archive of garments, photography, film and art,
the exhibition examines the influence of haute couture at pret-à-porter and highlights its significance in contemporary fashion.

Celia Kritharioti Couture

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.
