Designer Erik-Yvon SS17 Preview Photo Shoot

2

Melbourne Designer Erik-Yvon previews his not-yet-released SS17  range in a photo shoot with your top-voted style-fash winner Demi Tsioumanis.

You know when creatives come together and it just works?  That’s what happened when top-voted style-fash fave Demi Tsioumanis met with talented Melbourne Designer Erik Yvon to model his not-yet-released range. They teamed with top fashion photographer Mark Stanjo. The trio met at Erik’s Brunswick studio and they so enjoyed working together, you could almost feel the positive vibes from emanating from there! More about that later.

This is a preview of Erik-Yvon’s new SS17 range, available around September. It’s inspired by Erik’s school days in the late 90’s with the whole grunge and graf movement. Think of a rebellious teenager with attitude who always questions the norms and doesn’t want to fit in with others except for the closest group of friends. Erik says of the fabrics used: explains: “They are very refined and we’ve also introduced some organic cotton, which is such a good contrast next to this grungy look. -And of course the use of our very own prints which are now our very own signature features within each collection. We’ve also collaborated with a few Melbourne based creatives; illustrator KINAI WONG and Jewellery maker Daniel Waugh.”

“I’m glad Cocktail Revolution is giving away a little sneak peak of what we’ve been working on. The collection is a true representation of Melbourne, and we are proudly produced locally. Every component featured in this collection from the ribbing, buttons, printing, makers have been thoughfully selected and designed to support and promote Melbourne’s craftmanship and community.”

Of the experience, Erik said: “I Loved working with such a professional team. I was stoked when Cocktail Revolution called asking if I would like to be part of this project, and the answer was “OF COURSE, I would love to” . Working with Demi and Mark was so much fun. We all collaborated on this project. Demi is such a pocket rocket of a model. She had the right attitude and suited the style and direction we were going for and Mark knew exactly what he was doing. It was great meeting both creatives and I would definitely would love to work with them again.”

Demi also “really enjoyed the shoot. Both Erik and Mark made me feel extremely comfortable and worked well with me, especially knowing the fact that this was my first proper shoot.

I didn’t know much about Erik’s work, but I’m glad I got the chance to have a chat to him and see where all the magic happens!

I love everything about his designs.. The androgynous silhouettes, asymmetrical features, prints and especially the fabrics he uses; I couldn’t keep my hands out of the pockets because the linings were so amazing.

If I had to pick a favourite it would definitely be the blue wide leg pants. They were very comfy and the way they flicked out when I walked made me feel like a star!

I can’t wait to see what other amazing designs he comes up with in the future.

Thank you for everything. ?”

Erik presented Demi with a gift from his Delta Summer Collection, the Blue Blood top, below left. Lucky girl!

Erik-Yvon’s SS17 range will be out close to September. Can hardly wait!
