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

    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.
