She has now been invited by Mercedes-Benz and Elle magazine to present her autumn/winter collection 2018/19 as this year’s “newcomer” in Berlin– impressing the invited guests. On the occasion of her anniversary, she showed her new top creations and re-interpreted the designs from previous years:
30 women’s outfits
30 women’s outfits in mostly muted colours, with figure-hugging cuts, the typical CALLISTI blend of very masculine looks with military echoes but also with strong sensual and feminine accents. Protruding, opulent skirts were paired with short tops, with subtle shades such as aubergine, dark blue and cream as main colours as well as highlights in taupe and black.

“This show in Berlin with a specialist audience and buyers from large fashion department stores is a great opportunity”raves the designer, who is a regular guest of the Vienna Fashion Week.
The Vienna-based label CALLISTI is known for its leather accessories.
“But I now work almost exclusively with synthetic leather”, the designer revealed in an interview after her show in the former electric power plant near Potsdamer Platz. Her label name comes from the Greek and means “for the beautiful one” or “to the most beautiful”. The designer also launched her first men’s collection at the end of 2012, and presents her evening fashion collections twice a year.
