HIGH END FASHION ON MAKARSKA’S BREAKWATER
On 27.05.2018. first ever and historic Haute Couture fashion show was held on Makarska’s breakwater in production of academic product designer Olya Sookie accompanied by several hundred spectators.
Breakwater was transformed in to a unique fashion runway, shrouded in wonderfull natural scenery, which emphasized the ambiental concepts of the show itself.
„In cooperation with Tourist Board of Makarska, we decided to create something quite spectacular and uncommon in this community and judging by the response we got from spectators we have delivered on our promises, to bring a dash of international fashion scene here to Makarska.“ – says Olja.
Event started at nine in the evening with a short video produced by Boris Luetić from BitPit Productions, and kicked off a new and exciting chapter of Nephilim.
Show was officially opened by Klara, dance member of Crowd Control group from Split. Her spectacular performance put a spell on audience and showcased new custom made Nephilim dancing costume designed specially for this occasion.
Following Klara, runway was taken over by stunning models that left everyone present, breathless. Fluttering dresses, futuristic makeup and carefully contrived music background, emphasize and contribute to very name Nephilim – the fallen angels. As a true treat at the end, our most sucessfull model Kristina Šalinović took a walk on the runway and enchanted everyone present. Every girl was greeted by thundering applause as the walk out, one by one, and yet ovations of the crowd during défilé felt amazing and unexpected.
„I am very happy and proud of the final result. Efforts of the entire Olya Sookie team really paid off, especially when we saw delighted faces of our audience. There were quite a few tourists pressent at the show. You could see, they were charmed and surprised to see this type of event taking place in Makarska. It was another one of the many goals that we set before us, to show the world that we are a wonderful tourist destination, offering fun and unique content for everyone to enjoy.“ – states Olja
Creative team that we gathered for this event is made up of young and talented people from all over Dalmatia. It was a wonderfull opportunity to see them work together and showcase what they are capable of.
