Celia Kritharioti Show S/S 2018

The Ritz Place Vendome, Paris. 

Celia Kritharioti held her show on Monday 22th January 2018.

Celia Kritharioti is one of the most famous Greek fashion designers and the owner of the oldest Greek fashion house, established in 1906, which makes it three years older than Chanel.  Celia’s designs are already familiar with several world celebrities such as, Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga, Lindsay Lohan and the  Royal Family. The show opened with a short white cocktail dress, worn by the famous model,  Lais Ribeiro. 


Her collection that served to fulfill every couture fantasy, whatever that might be, a girlish spaghetti-strap and a bouncy-skirted ballgown was deliciously sweet, with its candy pink stripes and a giant bow tied at the side.  While a see-through lace floor-skimmer with feathered sleeves and collar was raunchy and fierce.  These dresses were bright and colorful. Yellow, barely-there pink, powdery blue, pearl, white and pastel mint green form the color palette on the delicate materials of lace, silk, tulles, chiffon, etc. 


Celia Kritharioti has created the Spring Summer 2018 Collection in Athens, Greece with virtuosity. Her collection is full of positive energy of dreams and the heart, and consequently of the body, flowers which flourish on most of the creations, laces with pale shades. These materials are further embellished with embroideries, crystals and ostrich feathers.


State of the art thigh-high embroidered boots and figure hugging mini dresses that accentuate the female body and express Feminine Empowerment. Ethereal nymphs that sparkle like morning dewdrops in gossamer cocktail dress embroidered with semi-precious stones, and Couture ankle boots. Fairy-tale figures emphasizing narrow waistlines make their entrance just before the geometrical, pleated, voluminous evening gowns inspired by the splendor and symmetry of Grecian architecture.  


Fine lace that has taken months to embroider, and silk tulle becomes the canvas on which these unique creations have been crafted while organza in soft pastels completes a Spring Summer Collection; a Collection created under the Greek Sky, where love for Couture meets the Greek Soul.
