Some days ago I had the pleasure to attend the hair styling rehearsal for the Aida Athens Xclusive Designers Week show. It took place at Vassilis P. Diamantopoulos hair studio, Kifisia.

All the hair products used are from Toni&Guy.

In the pic we can see Vassilis Diamantopoulos, his assistant, and the model, Sissy Papatsori. Sissy will be one of the models in today's show.

Of course, I asked the designer about the models' make up: It's all about thick eyeliner and pink lipstick.

As you can see, the hairstyle is romantic as well.

Laskaris AXDW show: The make up rehearsal

Some days ago I was invited to attend the make up rehearsal for the Laskaris Athens Xclusive Designers Week show. The make up was done with Make Up For Ever products, as always.
Let me show you the photos I took, just for you:

Let's meet the make up artist, Freddy Kalobratsos (FREDDY MAKE UP STAGE) and the model, Alicja Troushi.

 The make up mr Laskaris chose is inspired by the deep blue sea: He wanted the models to look like mermaids.

I also asked the designer about the hairstyle: He wants to create the impression that the sea breeze is blowing through the models' wavy hair.

Of course, I couldn't resist asking about the show: As you may know, mr Laskaris collaborated with Make a Wish organization to make young Fani's wish to be a fashion designer true: During his show he will present 3 dresses that Fani has designed (She will be wearing one of them in the show finale).

Except for that, there will be 25 female and 8 male models, and a big surprise in the finale (Sorry, I promised not to reveal details, but I can assure you that the show will be really interesting).

The collection as you have guessed is inspired by the sea. In fact, when I asked mr Laskaris to give us a hint, he smiled and said: 'Imagine of the Mermaid, the sister of Alexander the Great'.

Back to the make up: Here is the final result, what do you think?

Innocence lost

It's been a long time since I published a post, but here I am again: The weather is really cold right now and I miss these warm days, when no coat was needed. Like that one:

When the weather is good I'm really into ethnic outfits, with a personal twist of course, like that ear cuff (a recent obsession) or the high waist skirt (an old love).
