The young designer was the first Bulgarian participant of the Athens Xclusive Designers day and presented a collection in a scene with Zuhair Murad
Dilyana Mateeva and her fashion brand Art.Look presented a collection of Fashion Melody in Athens during the Athens Xclusive Designers Week – AXDW.
The new talented designer made the first Bulgarian participation in the official week of international fashion in Greece. It happened from October 31 to November 4, 2018, as Dilyana Mateeva was present for many of the critics, including the great Lebanese designer Zuhair Murad.
So far, AXDW has a total of 24 editions (two years) and has collections of famous designers and fashion houses such as Vivienne Westwood, Emanuel Hungarro, Escada, Krizica, Cacharelle, Guy Laroche, Marite and Francois Girbo and others.
The debut of the international stage collection of Dilyana Mateeva – Fashion Melody Autumn-Winter 2018/2019 – combines practicality and elegance with rebelliousness and impetuosity.
It is inspired by the feminine elegance in rock and, in particular, by the lyrical heroines in rock songs of the late 80's and early 90's of the twentieth century. The collection is characterized by the clear silhouettes and the feminine line of clothes, as well as the original original artistic paintings of the pop style. The feminine figurative drawings are key for a part of the clothes and the design of the silk crepe shawls, which are a main accessory along with the design hats.
The provocative and bold combination of fabrics, such as the combination of cashmere and crystal silk, is a strong accent in the collection.
Dilyana Mateeva is also based on velvet, ecological leather, and raincoat. The latest designs in the designer's collection are two dresses made from golden crepe silk and black crystalline silk.
Golden silk gently mixes the skin, elegantly follows the curves of the body and creates an illusion of nudity. Black crystalline silk shines gently and highlights the golden crepe.
Omi Choudouri, famous photographer (Omi Chowdhury), editor-in-chief of Deux Magazine Paris and Conde Nast, with whom Dilyana Mateeva worked at a photo shoot for Vogue magazine, was among AXDW's guests.
Here's what you share:
"The brand Art.Look by Diliana Mateeva is what the Bulgarian designer must follow. Global, focused on fabrics and detailed workmanship. What Art.Look distinguishes is not only the design (although it is very good), but also the ability of Diliana to turn his idea into a complete whole where design and art complement each other. "
Current trends in the latest edition of the Dilyana Mateeva event summarizes the following:
"I have the impression that in Greece they have the highest quality fabrics and they do not opt for artisanal work. The tendencies most designers showed during AXDW are quite provocative and glamorous. They opt for transparent fabrics such as tulle and chiffon, and Very tight accent is lace. Another most woven fabric is velvet.In most designer garments there were many linen cloths and spheres, some even hidden textiles. There were also collections based entirely on prints, as well as those with more tangible scenic orientation ".
As for the Zuhayr Murad collection, share Dilyana MateevaHe did not deceive himself and his style as he proved "An extremely intriguing and balanced collection that emits lightness, femininity and refinement." The designer opted for delicate ethereal fabrics and elegant chiffon veils, as well as lace, print, linen and beads, but in much more moderate styles.
