SFW Press Conference: Final touches before the start of the grand event
The organizers of the Sofia Fashion Week and some of the colorful participants came together to give us a chance to peek behind the scenes of the most spectacular fashion event.
Journalists, photographers, and bloggers filled one of the halls of the Marinela Hotel to learn more about Sofia Fashion Week. This fashion event boasts not only scale but also exceptional media interest.
The participants got acquainted with the highlights of the program of this year’s edition, presented by the organizers, including the owner of Code Fashion, Maria Boneva, and the PR manager of SFW and Marinela Hotel, Angelina Angelova.
They told us about last year’s success of the Pop Up Store, the idea of which is unfolding this year to cover all participants in the event. This new element of the SFW program will enable all Bulgarian and world designers to exhibit the models from the podium in a store where guests can buy their favorites.
The showroom and the unique tent for Entertainment will be furnished by the general partner of the event boutique furniture Nurus. The latest models of BMW and Mini – also official partners of the event – will be displayed on the entire area in the yard of the event. Martinez boutique perfumes will present their latest hit fragrances of the season.
During the press conference, Iliana Petrova told us about the first stage performance of the longtime partner of SFW – Plavai.bg, which will present the new collaboration with Miami Bag. Albena Petrova will take us around the magnificent world of fashion house Curiel and perfume brand Angelo Caroli, who will fly from Montenapoleone, Italy, to infect Sofia Fashion Week with their style and elegance.
Meanwhile, the designers of Princess Fashion, FEDE, Djofra, and Imane, presented the ideas behind their new collections and gave us a chance to look at them, presenting two of the models we expect to see on the catwalk.
As tradition dictates, the fashion week will be held in the EFE hall of Hotel Marinela. There will be four themed evenings, each of which is an excellent source of inspiration and a bouquet of positive emotions. For the first year, the leading roles for three of the evenings were entrusted to the faces of FaceControl, Zlatina Ivanova, and Elitsa Stoycheva. On the podium, we expect to see the longtime partners of SFW, Christian of Roma, who will enchant us with an exclusive hairdressing show.
