    New York Fashion Week: Pamella Roland Spring/Summer 2015 Runway Show

    September 12th, 2014

    For her Spring/Summer 2015 ready-to-wear collection Pamella Roland took her inspiration from the beauty and tranquil spirit of the Gardens of Kyoto in Japan and awed the audience with a stunning show of elegant dresses and separates at Lincoln Center on Tuesday afternoon. The models walked the runway wearing their hair up in sleek long ponytails and Manolo Blahnik heels. The extensive collection featured beautiful stone blue web lace dresses and gowns with Japanese knot or lacquered feather waist, ivory/taupe basket-weave jacquard dresses with hand origami folding, cherry blossom printed silk organza gowns, metallic and black floral organza dresses and gowns. The designer, who was also inspired for her latest creations by modern Japanese artist Toko Shinoda, used intricate fabrics such as floral metallic organza, ombre silk tulle and floral printed fils-coupe. The show closed with a model strutting the runway wearing a gorgeous ivory brushstroke chiffon bridal gown which was definitely the standout piece of the collection. Pamella Roland captured the audience once again with her beautiful feminine designs and I am sure that her creations will be a self-runner in the stores – arigatou!

    Pamella Roland, whose designs are all made in New York, launched her collection in 2002 and has since enjoyed great success with her brand Pamella Roland, which is sold at prestigious department stores and retailers in the US and abroad. With a degree in business management and her passion for fashion and commerce Pamella Roland oversees both the creative and business side of her label. She has become one of the leading American designers for evening wear and her creations are popular with A-list celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Eva Longoria and Halle Berry. Pamella recently announced that she is designing her first bridal gown collection which is supposed to debut in the fall 2015 season.

    New York Fashion Week: Nina Athanasiou Spring/Summer 2015 Runway Show

    September 9th, 2014

    German-born designer Nina Athanasiou presented her first solo show in New York for the Spring/Summer 2015 collection at the Designer’s Loft during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week (MBFW) on Sunday night. The show opened with scenes from the fashion movie “AKUMA” which features Albino-Top Model Shaun Ross. The models strutted the runway wearing intense dark eye-make up and high wedge heels. The extensive collection which includes both female and male designs features green, white and gold Capri pants, beige leather dresses with silk pleats, silk pastel green dresses and silk tops. All together the collection was heavy on pastel and brown colors which underline the fusion of retro and Sci-Fi elements that is reflected in the majority of the pieces. The highlight of the show was the appearance by Albino-Top Model Shaun Ross who strutted the runway wearing a cameo print suit. Although not all of Nina’s pieces are ready-to-wear, I am sure that the unique designs will appeal to anyone who is looking to express their individuality rather than following the latest trends.

    Nina Athanasiou is a German designer who lives and works in Munich, Germany. She studied fashion design but worked in various professions before she decided to return to fashion and realized that it was her actual passion. The designer, who is known for her edgy creations that combine retro with futuristic elements, launched her career in the USA and some of her most recent accomplishments include the participation at New York BK Fashion Weekend and Nolcha Fashion Week / New York in September 2013. She also presented her collection at the Vancouver Fashion Week and won the first prize at the Emerging Trends Fashion Challenge during London Fashion Week in September 2013.
