I am sure you would have seen on Twitter all the comments I made about THE highlight of my trip to Paris- attending Sophia Kokosalaki’s AW10 show. I am a big fan of her Grecian-inspired style because I am an antiquity nut who grew up reading Greek mythology. Also I used to be a Titan Quest (an adventure computer game where the hero kills monsters through all the ancient civilizations, starting off at ancient Greece) addict.
I just watched the remake of Clash of the Titans, definitely not as good as the original Perseus was much better looking in the original and the gifts from the gods were actually pretty cool), but who am I to judge Sam Worthington…although there were so many dejavu scenes that were similar to Avatar…
Anyway, I digress. The Sophia Kokosalaki show was held at the Westin, and a fine hotel it is. I have shown far more hotel photos than catwalk photos, because I am a good customer and will not reveal the designer’s new season to the public, guess you will have to come to my boutique in July and see for yourself.
The crowd was buzzing. There were so many cameras. Leigh Lezark rushed past me, she is so pretty.
I managed to get Jo a seat, so we could all watch the show from the 2nd front row. I thought the rich interiors suited the collection beautifully. I love Corinthian columns.
I think I saw Natalie Massenet. I met a lovely lady from the Los Angeles who owns her own online boutique and was hoping to speak to the Net-a-Porter founder too. Actually, I would have been speechless.
I could not believe my eyes when I saw the divine Yasmin Sewell sitting directly opposite me. I eventually gathered up enough courage and went to introduce myself to her. She was so sweet, saying ‘we Aussie girls stick together.’ in her lovely Aussie-Londoner accent.
I know you are all dying to see Sophia’s new stuff, but you will just have to wait =D I am extremely proud to say that our boutique will be the only store in Australia to stock her garments.
Here she is! We spend 45 minutes waiting to be seated, the entire show was less then 15 minutes. The music they played was the most dramatic operatic-style vocal music I’ve ever laid my ears on. It kept singing in my ears afterwards.
The show was brilliant. But the highlight was definitely meeting my favourite Australian fashionista Yasmin Sewell.
