Me at the end of the show
Empire by Alice Marie Hajipanayi that won the New Designers Award at the Athens Xclusive Designers Week two weeks ago, is now back with a full catwalk show for Fall/Winter 2011-2012. I had the great honor to attend the show and take some cool shots.
A few words about the F/W 2011-12 Collection:
"Mixing 70’s couture and casual Parisian-street chic, with a touch of bohème, this collection is up-scale and casual with basic wardrobe must haves. Maxi dresses, sheer blouses, skinny leathers, boho-chic blazers and coats, jumpsuits, short dresses and beautiful hand-crafted leather bags.
The look? Underground/feminine/sensual/luxury. Her playful style expounds immaculate tailoring with a dynamic feminine edge. She is always loyal to using luxurious, high-end textiles that wear beautifully and give the clothes an adaptable styling of a ready to wear look for the day or a chic evening look for a night out. Sheer silks, chiffon, high-tech stretch silks, Napa leather, soft suede, prints, cashmere, ‘Chanel’ wools and raffia. Empire’s silk dresses and much-loved knitwear pieces are much sought after and are met with a surge of excitement at the shows."
Empire to me is a totally fresh casual brand adressing to all women and this is its strong asset. Luxury clothing made for every woman.
I have this strong inner feeling that this brand is going to have a bright future....and this is just the beginning!
Many special thanks to Alice Marie Hajipanayi for giving me the chance to attend this wonderful show!
