It all started a rainy Friday aternoon- 4 days of fashion – in the heart of Athens during  AXDW aka Athens Fashion Week.
Parallel events, pre & post show parties, hotel galas and a few collections that stole our hearts.
Of course food could not be missing from our post-show celebrations since we had zipped our mouths for quite a long time now. (See end of post)

First Stop the Eleni Kyriacou SS16 show, opening this years Athens Exclusive Designer Week
