Maria Mastori Filep Motwary Fall 09 in SOPHIA a short film directed by Janos Visnyovszky

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Sophia is the Greek word for Wisdom. It is the personification of all divine femininity. Sophia is the DIvine daughter who  receives from her Pygmalion all the accumulated knowledge, which helps her to b egin her own creative journey. Through this procedure, all laws of creation are renewed.

"There is a renewed interest in Sophia which comes at a time in our collective spiritual history when we are at war with ourselves, with one another and with the environment." People everywhere are searching for meaningful ways to achieve peace and a link to Wisdom.

The silhouette looks ethnic yet the clothes as individual pieces are contemporary.

Mastori's bold jewellery, the protagonist in Sophia's attire and they signify Pygmalion's power.

Motwary's clothes, a careful layering of silk organza, sparkling taffeta, cotton and heavy winter garments, give a graphic outline to both heroines."

The video presentation takes place during Athens Fashion Week.
