From The Vault: Athens Fashion Week AW08/SS09

By | From The Vault | No Comments

I’ve been discussing with my husband where we should go on our vacation this summer, and I’ve been dreaming about going back to Greece. When I’ve gone there for modelling I’ve always been very busy, and when I’ve gone for pleasure it’s been absolutely amazing. I came across these old screen shots of my very first Fashion Week, back in October 2008 which was S/S 2009. I did shows for: Mixalis Aslanis, Yiannos Xenis, Victoria Kyriakides, Elena Strongyilitou, Kathy Heyndels, Demna Gvasali, La Nenette, Vrettos Vrettakos and Custo Barcelona.I look really angry in the photos from the very first show, Aslanis. I am holding a silver bird, contemplating wether modelling was for me at all since one of the models had done quite a bit of drugs backstage and then stepped on my feet on the runway…

I have not been able to find any photage from Custo Barcelona, but I remember that that show was quite late in the evening as it was the closing show of FW in Technopolis, Gazi in Athens. We were going in a circle shaped runway before a huge audience. Someone stole my new pink bra backstage, first of many thefts by other models ūüėõ I’ve only found a makeup shot from Demna Gvasali, the pic with the huge black-blue eyeshadow. Somewhere I know I have a photo from us all after the show.

My favourite look that I wore during FW was the skull dress from Vrettos Vrettakos, so cool.
