Celia Kritharioti Haute Couture SS17 Collection, which was presented during Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week in January 2017 at Salon Vendome in The Ritz, Paris, is an ode to femininity and handmade craftsmanship. Vogue UK noted: “It was a collection that served to fulfill every couture fantasy”.

Celia Kritharioti, is an innovative designer and owner of the first Greek Fashion House established in 1906. Since 1988, Celia has brought the tradition into the 21st century, pinpointed in Vanity Fair UK as one of six Couturiers to watch worldwide.

The Collection presented romance and innocence. The «Les Fleurs du bien» Collection is inspired by flowers: pastel colours; gold and silver, fine French lace, detailed embroidery, feathers and fringes. Bright yellow, like the Greek sun, baby blue like the sky, pink like the colour of the sky at sunset of a Summer day.”In this day and age, we have to highlight innocence and beauty”, Celia quotes.
