Moi Ostrov team reports:



With a full packed audience, first up we were presented with the Young Designer students of the Studio 8 institute showcasing their abilities and talented efforts playing with structure, colour and detail of both the A course and B course students in Fashion and Design where for their first show on the catwalk they let their imaginations run free. There was a special refreshing feeling that was amidst the mood during this specific show as it wasn’t laid out in set trends but more along the lines of freestyle designs that really stood out individually also introducing the audience with a new sense of thinking when it comes to everyday dressing. Experimenting with new shapes, different textiles, and a new modern take on evening wear, these young designers cool irony hugely revealed a visual delight.

Next up a flash of glamour brightened up the catwalk for the SAMISAN show cobalt blue full on cascade tulle gown holstered by rich in sparkling gold three dimensional exotic leaves re-examining the romantic side of a new golden age transferred onto fabrics in such an immaculate and astounding way,proves designers still have the ability to produce a bank of ideas when trying to fill a runway with an outnumbered audience on the look out.




Immersed on the runway during the Rodoula Georgiou show models came with monochrome retro prints on floor length A-line skirt, demure black jumpsuit followed by a pallet of earthy and neutral colours on light and airy maxi length top and an open cut sleeveless dress matched with a wrap headpiece that collectively mastered that desert chic look for those warm red sky days. Show some skin and brave the heat in designs by Rodoula Georgiou.


Cocktail hour dressing just got a new image that fired up the scene for the Mara Minodora show with black diaphanous sheer linen skirt with delicate appliqué floral detail right down to the hem with an underlay of a sequined mini followed by a body hugging with more c-through detail and a wispy fringed hem; proving that just a pinch of skin can do wonders with out having to over load the look maintaining a lady like glam. MARA MINODORA (15)
