Myrto Dramountani Will Showcase with The Society Fashion Week
Myrto Dramountani is a Dubai-based a fashion designer and architect. Studying fashion at Parsons the New School for Design gave her early exposure to the New York City fashion scene.
Now she’s back in NYC, with a runway show at 8:30 PM on September 7, to appear as part of The Society Fashion Week.
According to Dramountani, the inspiration for her collections is the fabric itself, which she approaches as a three-dimensional surface. The laser-cut patterns create visual illusions and give spatial properties to her designs. The approach is achieved by using the latest computational design techniques and digital fabrication technology.
“Fashion for me has an architectural dimension and application,” says Dramountani. “We construct clothes for the same reason we construct a house: we seek a shelter for the body and we achieve that through geometric designs. Our clothes protect us, create feelings, impressions and function with us. So does the space we live, work, or be active in.”
