The shows @ 23rd Athens Xclusive Designers Week

Twenty five shows where greek fashion designers, fashion brands and new talents presented their creations as part of the 23rd Athens Xclusive Designers Week.
Before a fashion show it is always chaotic, are the clothes ready in time, do we have the right shoes, are the models in time, are we ready to kick off? Did our guests arrive in time? Will they like my new creations? Will they buy it? Will the press write positive about it? So many questions, so many doubts  so don't judge them just scroll down and enjoy watching each creation!

And scroll down to read who won the New Designer Award for 2018!



Zappeio was the venue for most of the shows and I really like the place. It gives the shows allure, it is such a fascinating and charming place.

Some designers presented their spring/summer 2018 collection, while others presented the fall/winter 2018/2019 collection. A bit confusing but for the visitors a chance to buy immediately their favourite piece! And save money for coming season as some looks were must have for coming winter season.

I enjoyed reading the quote of Christian Dior: "Happiness is the secret to all Beauty. There is no Beauty without Happiness". It was the inspiration for the Spring-Summer 2018 collection of MI-RO. So lets have a look at what the designer duo presented.
