Celia Kritharioti, one of the most celebrated fashion designers in Greece, showcased her Spring/Summer 2017 Collection "The Flowers of Good," during Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week held at the legendary Ritz Hotel.

"Without heart, the world would be quite different" (Odysseas Elytis)

Celia Kritharioti, has her own fashion house in the heart of the Plaka in the center of Athens, where history meets myth. Where the imagination is vital. A life devoted to unspeakable elegance.

In perpetual bubbling intellectual, Paris fantasmé was an obvious to present its creations.

This collection is full of positive energy; That of the dream and of the heart, and consequently of the body: flowers which flourish on most creations, lace with pale shades.

Yellow, solar and festive, and the Rose, heart and love. But also the Blue Azur symbolizing creation and human ties. And then White and Silver for innocence and generosity.

No color without an obscure part, the Black comes to emphasize the whole.

Exceptional embroideries, fringes according to body movements, vaporous feathers, organzas, hand-cut pancakes, tulle and ruffles, elaborate braids and then spring cotton lace.

The flowery gardens of our heart, in a pleiad of fabrics filled with flowers, remind us that when we search for our inner spring even if we are not born in Paris we can always be reborn.

"The collection stunning displays of elegant fabrics become the canvas with the garment, the choice of fabrics, the trim. The collection is absent of on-garment designs, beaded trim or other elegant glamorizing techniques as the designer has chosen to allow the fabric to create the intrinsic trim, to allow the natural beauty of the garment, from the see through mesh, peek-a-boo cut outs, flowing chiffon, shimmering silks and translucent fabrics, to send the message, quiet elegance, forever captivated, unforgettable."
