Backstage DElight at Fashion Week Athens

Once again, the dream team of QueenB, Hari K and me, was behind the catwalks of Fashion Week Athens. This time, we played secret helpers to my favourite girls of Greek fashion, Evi Retziou and Daphne Iliaki of designer duo DElight.

I was responsible for dressing model Christina.

The DElight girls, supervising Kordula's make-up.

Evi perfecting the fit on the model.

Loved the hair. Double bun - simple but fun!

Mandatory make-up touch-ups.

The friendliest model around, cutie Ismini. We all loved her!

The whole concept of the collection, including the black embroidery on the clothes and the invitation's graphic design, was inspired by the kaleidoscope.

The models all lined-up and ready for the finale.

This is all I saw from the catwalk. Being backstage means no actual show for me.

And to those who were wondering, this is how unglamorous but oh-so-exciting the backstage of a fashion show is.

It was hard work, but dare I say how lucky I was?

i'm certain your help was valuable for a great show, like the one the DELIGHT duo deserves.
and i can't even imagine how high your adrenaline rises while being backstage that exact moment the first model steps on the catwalk!

@Christiana You did? Haha!

@Stella We had a minor shoe crisis at some point, but all went down smooth. And yes, I loved the rush!

@marb Σεβαστή η γνώμη σου καθώς είναι θέμα γούστου, αλλά να ξέρεις ότι τα μοντέλα πασαρέλας είναι τελείως ξεχωριστή κατηγορία από τα υπόλοιπα (π.χ. τα glamour models που κάνουν τις φωτογραφήσεις στα ανδρικά περιοδικά ή τα μοντέλα καταλόγων) και εξ´ορισμού δεν πρέπει να έχουν μεγάλο στήθος για πρακτικούς λόγους.
