With a crowd of thousand glamorous guests the 14th International Fashion Week of Athens, Athens Xclusive Designers Week, was completed at Megaro Ethnikis Asfalistikis, with the presentation of the collections of 23 important Greek and international designers for Spring/Summer 2014 and many side events.
Greek designer Laskaris reserved for his guests a dreamy show filled with romance: ethereal presences, mermaids taken from fairy tales and complete female creations with transparencies in light tones and handmade details moved the guests to an imaginary atmosphere directed by Bessie Malfa. The show was framed by the music of George Hatzis and the soprano Vassia Zacharopoulou who performed live with her wonderful voice the aria “Casta Diva“.
The highlight of the show was the presentation of Fani, the 13 year old girl from Make-A-Wish of Greece that wished to become a designer and that came true with the help of Laskaris who took upon himself to make two designs belonging to the little girl and also the dress she would be wearing: Fani’s parents were so proud of her at the point where she walked on the stage in her beautiful pink dress, as all designers do in the finale of the show, a fact that didn’t only move Fani but also the crowd.
