Fotini Vergini: Delicious Flapper Dress
Name: Fotini Vergini
Design Title: Delicious Flapper Dress
How do you feel about being a finalist in the 2016 Fashion Design Competition?: After I learnt about the 2016 Fashion Design Competition, from a good friend, my decision to participate was quite spontaneous and full of energy as I wanted to suggest something fresh and beautiful. Therefore, I feel very honoured and happy to develop my idea and to be part of this celebration of creativity!
What does ‘style’ mean to you?: I feel that style is is not very easy to be defined in our days since we are almost bombarded with ideals of what we should be at every stage in our lives. Yet, perhaps style can be seen as this unique inner way of expression that someone manifests though their presence; with an effortlessly sharp attitude and clear aesthetic which can not be ignored!
3. Who is your style icon?: There are many style icons that I truly admire form several eras. However, currently I am fascinated by two ladies from different time periods; Tilda Swinton for her elegant alternative grace and Lauren Bacall for her classy, sexy sophistication.
4. Please summarise the concept behind your design in one sentence: A modern graphic, retro shaped, mini flapper dress with sharp contemporary updates on a vintage theme following discretely the concept of “more is more”; through its visual feast of bold, delicious colours and fine, nicely finished details!
