Nafsika Skourti

My bachelor thesis is done.
Beyonce rewarded me with her new album and I literally spend the whole day watching her 17 new videos. It’s National Beyonce Day and the album is on repeat. And I am writing this blog post just to prove to myself that there is more out there.
Because this shit right here is awesome, too: The half Greek half Jordanian designer Nafsika Skourti dropped her final collection at Central Saint Martins. The collection dropped back in 2012 and it’s a SS13 collection. I know I am super late, but I can’t leave it unmentioned.

I only realised this in hindsight when the collection had already taken direction. The summer before final I was doing alot of spiritual reading and thinking and stuff, and that was kind of the basis for the prints.”

Maybe thats why at the time I was attracted to menswear, suits to be more specific. The Last piece of the puzzle was combining the 2 moods with the embroidery I learned during my year out.”
