Last Wednesday Fashion Workshop transformed into the ultimate fashion hub in the centre of Athens. Being part of this season’s Fashion Room Service initiative by urban street fashion magazine Ozon Raw, turned out a total success and a wonderful experience!
The streets of Psyrri were filled with fahionistas, a joy-ness in the air, friends taking endless fashion-stroll while enjoying a drink, and streetstyle photographers capturing all the action in front of the graffiti-painted walls.
But the true action was taking place inside: Fashion Workshop’s main building became our very own creative hub, where our dear students held an exhibition of their work. Our thrill was even bigger, since many of our graduates also participated showeing their creations and designs There was so much young talent to spot, needless to say how much they loved it and how proud I felt of them!
Our other building was hosting three amazing Greek designers, that have defined the fashion scene with their work over the years: the renowned fashion duo Deux Hommes (who will be curating our Summer Intensive course in July) ”invaded” the groundfloor with numerous iconic designs of their collections’ archive, showing their favorite kind of woman: the primitive, yet feminine one. On the first floor Mariaflora P.Lehec, founder of the fresh SOMF label, showed the world her unique modern designs that have already become a fashion-must. Next door, iconic Greek designer Loukia invited you in her romantic boudoir, where tons of lace and embroidery traveled you through time. On the opposite door, Sarri 12 street art gallery showcased their colorful work.
The night came to a perfect end with a live gig on our rooftop by Onirama, who were presenting their latest record, and all of us ended dancing on the stage!
It was an amazing day, such an event, thank you all for being part of it, thanks to George Kelefis for giving us the opportunity to be part of the Fashion Room Service, thanks to Fresh pastry shops for making our event even sweeter (luckily with 0% fixes), thanks to Absolut for filling our glasses with tasty cocktails and a really big special thanks to our Workshopaholics who keep making things happen!
Happy Easter to you all!
Hugs & kisses
