Myrto Dramountani is a Fashion Designer and Architect with quirky, sexy, stylish and avant-garde designs, known for her signature laser-cut dresses. She is actively working in London and Dubai. Studying fashion at Parsons the New School for Design, gave Myrto early exposure to the New York City fashion scene. She was accepted at Parsons with a full scholarship (Parsons Graduate Dean’s Scholarship and Vardinogiannis foundation scholarship). Her final project at Parsons was selected by a jury comprised of industry professionals, for the Parsons 10th Annual AAS fashion studies line debut at Lord and Taylor in New York City. After graduating from Parsons, Myrto Dramountani worked with leading fashion firms and designers such as Magaschoni Apparel Group and Victor De Souza. Her first capsule collection was sold at Imilla Road  store, in Soho, Manhattan. In March 2011 she opened the 9th Athens Exclusive Designers Week with her winter collection 2011/2012. Her work has been published in magazines such as Vogue UK, Glamour UK, Tatler UK, Grazia Middle East, Marie Claire, Madame Figaro. The inspiration for her collections is the fabric itself which she approaches as a three dimensional surface. The laser cut patterns create visual illusions and give spatial properties to her designs. This approach is achieved by using the latest computational design techniques and digital fabrication technology. 


"Fashion for me has an architectural dimension and application. We construct clothes for the same reason we construct a house: we seek a shelter for the body and we achieve that through geometric designs. Our clothes protect us, create feelings, impressions and function with us. So does the space we live, work or been active in. The process by which a dress is constructed is similarly questioned by metaphors of architectural construction. Fashion design and architecture share much of the same vocabulary and similar techniques of construction: pinning, darting, folding, wrapping, draping, cutting. So when I design clothes I am always influenced from architecture and I even use architectural design software in order to create my designs. My goal is to cover, but also to reveal the body in a structural way.I design the fabric and I cut it with laser cut machines. All of my garments have 2 or 3 dimensional laser cut shapes. Geometry is also a source of inspiration for me as I transform basic geometrical shapes into interesting fashion combinations. The most challenging thing is to discover new techniques in order to create unique clothes. The manipulation of the fabric is a very important aspect in my work and kind of my trade mark".
