Sophia Kokosalaki

All would have gone like fashion clockwork front row at Sophia Kokosalaki were it not for one late and very pale Leigh Lezark, whose billowy white floor-length gown over black pants ensemble—is she sinking her teeth in the vampire trend?—was certainly one way to get photographers’ attention. But Kokosalaki’s runway was another. The Greek-born designer cranked out her signature cocktail mini-dress hits, sometimes with tulle accents at the sleeve or neckline. Building off the Milan and New York collections, there was also some lingerie detailing, as in exposed corsets and super-short hemlines. Finally, for those who relate more to Lady Gaga than Countess Dracula, there was one entirely no-pants look, a white corset-meets-bodysuit number. You could say it’s a newfangled look.
