Eleni Kyriacou to launch debut collection for SS12

London-based womenswear fashion and textiles designer Eleni Kyriacou is launching her debut collection, Women as Treasure, for SS12. Eleni studied textile design at Central Saint Martin's and apprenticed for Alexander McQueen in menswear and accessories for womenswear and for Emilio de la Morena.

Eleni's first collection draws inspiration from archaeology and directly inspired by photographs by Eleni of sites in Athens, Greece. Fragments and layers of buildings, roads, tombs, amphoras have inspired the use of contrasting textures, layering of fabrics, transparencies and draping. Materials used for the collection includes silks of varying textures, metallics, foiled leather, suede, tulle and cotton, while the colour palette for the collection is also inspired by the photographs.
