NYFW: NINA ATHANASIOU
Written by Ndey Buri
German-born designer, Nina Athanasiou debuted her phenomenal, avant-garde, ready-to-wear collection for the first time at New York Fashion Week on February 13th at Studio 450 in New York City.
The looks from the show emphasized a range of grungy, seductive appeal. The dystopian collection saw a range of patchwork leather use, fringe feather-like trimmings, sleek metallic fabrics and free-flowing structures. The creative use of lace, sheer and fur textures emphasized the designer’s raving “party girl beast-like” character.
The show’s makeup looks harmoniously matched the collection’s radical pieces. The head make-up artist describes the avant-garde makeup looks as “A girl who describes herself as a glamour junkie looking to live the lifestyle of an edgy party girl”. The striking raised cheekbones, pale skin, contoured highlights and deep plum lipsticks tied together the skittish feel of the clothing.
What do you think of the collection?
