the triumph of inspiration

The greek contest of Triumph Inspiration Award took place at FWBVK. What a day!

Thirty designers, more than thirty models, Orsalia’s Parthenis bridal collection for S/S 2012 an the big Greek winner of Triumph’s Inspirational Awards Greece who will travel to Shanghai in order to participate at the global contest. That’s the verdict for the 21st March at FWBVK.

The total white and minimal workshop proved to be an ideal canvas for the designers’ creations. Wings were the ultimate trend at the runway as this year’s theme was “Butterflies and Dragons”. C-through, sharp cuts and unexpected materials as copper were also setting the scenery. Parthenis’ bridal collection which was inspired mostly by the 30’s and the early 40’s too, was the finale of the event.

We had our own contestant: workshopaholic Katerina Pehlivanoudi designed an excellent body for Triumph and went pretty well. Our fashionable judges –director of FWBVK, Vicky Kaya, the fashion director of Votre Beauté, Nicholas Georghiou, the photographer Genevieve Mantzari and Orsalia Parthenis herself- voted for Eleni Chatzipauli and her “inky” design to be the winner. At the end of the day, workshopaholics were the big winners too, as we experienced a great fashion event and had the chance to meet mr. Georges Dimos, the Business Development Director of fashion TV -the diamond of the workshop.
