Maria Steffania | Estilo Moda '17
Steffania Debuted her first collection during Estilo Moda ´18, mesmerizing more then one spectator during the show. Steffania whom is the head of the recently opened Fashion Design career in UNITEC, a prestigious private university in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, surprised the audience with her well though collection, work worthy of praise. This colorful and unique collection took the audience through Steffania´s Kaleidoscopic point of view.
Shimmering, silky fabrics, relaxed fit garments, denim, fringe details, embroidery and lace features were characteristic on Steffania´s collection. Beautifully executed garments marched down the runway in all their colorful might, showcasing the designers unique perspective and stunning the audience with the quality of her work. A retrospective approach brought to life with the inclusion of modern and trendy design details such as fringe and denim, amongst others.
Asymmetric cuts and peplum were also very much present on this collection, giving the pieces that retro flare and that femininity allure. Another interesting and quite shocking detail was the inclusion of the shoes. Steffania went the extra mile and created literally an entire collection from head to toe. The shoes showcased during her show were her own creation, and that is something you don't see everyday. The shoes included; comfy sandals and ballerinas amongst other retro styles. Groovy and bohemian sandals and also some shoes that reminded me of the Marie Antoinette era, that definitely gave the designer a much deserved push to recognition, not only for her designing skills but for her entire concept and creativity, making this collection and designer one to watch. Kudos!
