AND_i AT THE VIENNA AWARDS 26th MARCH 2012
Andreas Eberharter of AND_i presented his SS12 Taboo jewelry collection on the catwalk at the annual Vienna Awards gala event, which honors creatives in the fashion industry.
The collection showcase evoked speculation of the many sides to a personality and identity. The models donned white body paint, outfits and masks covering both sides of their head, provoking confusion and interest.
Eberharter won the award for ‘Designer Branding’. The award merits an Austrian brand that has developed corporate identity through fusion of fashion and lifestyle, which has been interpreted in an innovative way and contributes to the fashion image of Austria internationally.
Not only did Eberharter win the award, he also designed it!
NEW DESIGNER BRANDS AT AMF SHOWROOM
AMF are proud to announce two new labels have recently joined our agency.
The soon to be Paris-based designer duo NATARGEORGIOU, Dimos Natar and Andreas Georgiou, refer to their designs as ‘second skin’.
The trademark cutting edge handmade knit, which is the foundation of their designs, is altered and transformed into a shinier striking version blended with metallic yarns, pure organza, light chiffon and exquisite soft cashmere, eagerly embellished with handmade beaded leaves.
NGFWS03 and NGFWV02
In 2001, Andreas Eberharter founded the jewelry label AND_i with which he has had worldwide success.
Eberharter uses new and unusual materials such as aluminium and acrylic glass, but also uses Swarovski crystals, pearls and cubic zirconia. His works are eye- catching, intense, clear and uncompromising in design.
We are also currently working on our own AMF Showroom Facebook page that will be updated regularly with exciting news.
