During New York Fashion Week, I had the idea to shoot an outfit post at Times Square. Brightly adorned with billboards and advertisements, this tourist attraction seemed to be the perfect backdrop to show this amazing gown by Athens-based Christos Costarellos. Ball gowns for day, why the hell not?! The Greek designer has been for quite a while on my watch list as I adore his couture techniques to create ethereal dresses inspired by ancient Greek mythology.
What I didn’t think off was that the temperatures were approximately – 5° C that day with heavy wind which created a chill factor of around -20° C. In fashion, not everything that looks so glam is always glamorous…
My look: Lace-trimmed Swiss-dot tulle midi dress by Costarellos, Bianca leather sandals and Cassandre small suede shoulder bag, both by Saint Laurent, silver-plated, Swarovski crystal and faux pearl clip earrings by Miu Miu.
