ERKi Fashion Show 2012 - Overview

BLOGI NÜÜD KA EESTI KEELES!

English On the 26th of May me and 2 of my girlfriends visited one of the biggest annual fashion events in Estonia – ERKI Fashion Show 2012. It is always a much-anticipated event and offers an excellent platform for our talented young designers to showcase their work to our fashion elite and the wider public. The show has been going on since 1982 and has become one of the biggest and most important fashion events in Tallinn. I also caught a glimpse of Liisi Eesmaa – one the most famous and best Estonian designers whose dresses are regularly worn by our rich and famous.

This year 32 new talents (some fashion students, some a little more established designers) showed their latest collections on the catwalk – 29 of those were Estonian and 3 from abroad. Amazing clothes, fantastically creative shoes and cool handbags were all presented. In the end judges selected the best collection and I was so pleased to see one of my favourite collections to win – “Kleidi Reform” (The Reform of a Dress) by Liina-Mai Püüa. Her long romantic dresses were absolutely stunning and very wearable. In fact, I would love to get my hands on the salmon-coloured dress on the last picture and wear it on my this year’s company Christmas Party!

A few days after the show I was delighted to find my picture on several Estonian fashion websites. Stilist.ee had a feature about the style of ERKI’s visitors and ERKI Moeshow official Facebook page also published an album of their stylish public. Such a lovely surprise! Me and my girls were very impressed by the event and are already looking forward to next year. 


Eesti 26. mail kylastasin koos 2 sobrannaga siis kauaoodatud ERKI Moeshow’d. Nagu iga Eesti fashionista teab, on siis tegemist yhe suurima moeetendusega Eestis. ERKI saabumine on Eesti moehuviliste seas alati vaga oodatud, kuna kahjuks ei toimu meil just palju taolisi moeyritusi ja Tallinn Fashion Week’ile paasevad minu teada vaid ajakirjanikud ja muud tahtsad moetegelased (palun parandage mind, kui eksin!).

ERKI Moeshow on nyydseks juba 30-aastane ja sai alguse vaikesest tudengite moedemonstratsioonist Eesti Riiklikus Kunstiinstituudis. Nyydseks on ERKI ikka taiesti arvestatav moeyritus (tegelikult on see nyyd kyll vahe oeldud!) ning olles kylastanud eelnevalt ka Londoni Moenadalat, ytleksin, et kogu show oli palju huvitavamalt ja kreatiivsemalt kokku pandud. Samuti ei olnud kollektsioonid nii kommertslikud nagu suurtel brandidel – iga roiva juures oli tunda puhtalt selle disaineri ideesid ning teostust.

Sel aastal esitlesid oma loomingut 32 noort disainerit, nendest 29 Eestist ning 3 valismaalt. Olin niisama vaimustatud nii kaunitest roivastest, huvitavalt loomingulistest jalanoudest kui ka vorratutest labipaistvatest kottidest. Lopus valiti Žürii poolt ka voitja ja minu suureks roomuks osutus selleks Liina-Mai Püüa oma “Kleidi reformi” kollektsiooniga. Liina imekaunid romantilised ning vaga kantavad ohtukleidid jaid mulle kohe meelde, eriti armusin tema l6he-varvi kleiti, mida kannaksin hea meelega oma selle aasta firma joulupeol (firma joulupeod on Inglismaal alati yhed aasta glamuurseimad yritused).

Olin samuti ysna elevil, kuna silmasin show esireas yhte oma Eesti lemmikdisainerit Liisi Eesmaad, kelle kleidid on teatavasti kaunistanud paljusid Eesti rikkaid ja kuulsaid.

Paar paeva parast yritust oli mul hea meel leida enda foto nii monelgi Eesti moeveebilehel. Stilist.ee avaldas artikli ERKI kylastajate personaalsest stiilist ning ERKI Facebooki lehel ilmus samuti album kohalolijate outfittidest. Igatahes avaldas yritus minule ja tydrukutele suurt muljet ja ootame huviga juba jargmise aasta ERKi saabumist.
