Myrto Stamou is a new designer who drew my attention some time ago when she won the Best Womenswear award at Graduates Fashion Week in the University of the Creative Arts in 2009! As a result her winning collection was feautured all over Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire and not only here in Greece.
While studying Economics here in Greece she also attended fahion design at Veloudakis school. She has worked with many famous names in the fashion industry such as Hannah Marshall and River Island with whom she collaborated and designed dresses inspired by her winning collection. In the photo above she was snapped by Joanna wearing one of them!
I love her designs because they are minimal and always elegant with respect to the woman's body! Flowy fabrics, drapped in nude and pastel tones everything a modern woman would ask for!
I thought it would be nice to introduce you to her now that she came back in hometown and is preparing her studio and her new collection!
