A fortunate stroke of serendipity
It was an early spring afternoon when “Serendipity” knocked the door with a joyful unexpected surprise. Was it a coincidence or destiny? Sometimes you do not need to understand, just have faith and something wonderful will mark your way! As terrifying feelings, fate, love, change of hearts, unspoken words might be, there is always a hope for a stumble of magic dust for keeping them alive.
For Maria Aristidou, Autumn/Winter 2018-19 couture collection, the inspiration was an overjoyed roller coaster. Her new luxurious knit couture geometric patterns with embroidering embellishments capture the romantic side of a woman and the power of the universe! Colours of limelight and darkness create a luxury feast of knit fabrics for sleek cut designs, that embrace the woman figure. The timeless classic with a modern twist are the signatures of the designer’s Autumn/Winter 2018-19 “Serendipity” Collection!
