Eliana Batsakis On Netflix’s Next In Fashion

Eliana added, “Sometimes I definitely don’t give myself enough credit.” She was selected by the casting team to take part in the popular reality competition on Netflix, “Next in Fashion.” She almost turned down the offer, but she couldn’t.
“I was so terrified I almost didn’t go,” she told the news network. “I was like, ‘Oh no chance, like, I’m going to look stupid. I’m going to ruin my career before it even starts.”
Nonetheless, Eliana eventually joined the cast and displayed what she calls her “unconventional party girl” outfits to the judges. When filming is finished, this is when possible candidates start to move. According to Eliana, her friends advised her to relocate to New York or Los Angeles, but she prefers to remain in Cincinnati to groom the next big name in fashion.
“I really believe in Cincinnati as a creative community, so however I can uplift it is amazing,” the Cincinnati native added.
How Much Is Eliana Batsakis Net Worth?
Eliana Batsakis’s net worth is currently under 250 thousand. She is a fashion designer, artist, and “world-builder”. Initially enrolling in college to study furniture design, Eliana later changed her major to fashion at the advice of a professor. “[She said] you’re meant to do this and you should,” Eliana told WCPO. “No one had ever said that to me before.”
Eliana is a graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She infuses laughter and enthusiasm into every one of her collections, as she is frequently complimented on. Eliana wants her viewers to be able to easily visit and leave the other worlds she creates with her voluminous and vibrant clothing.
Her use of inventive storylines, altered textures, vibrant color palettes, and strong shapes, inspired by true stories, are characteristics of her work. Eliana doesn’t produce clothing for a certain body type. She likes to think of clothes as “bodies” that have the power to take the user to different planes of existence, utilizing clothing as a catalyst to open up new realities.
Eliana’s admiration for fine arts sparked when she was young. She told Medium, “Whether it was singing and dancing around the house with my sister or locking myself in my room to sketch pictures of dolphins and cheetahs (my childhood obsessions), I have always been attracted to the arts. I think the idea of truly pursuing a career as an artist, however, came from the art program at Taylor High School.”
She added, “Under her influence, I won a silver medal at the National Scholastics Art and Writing Awards that took place in New York City. After attending the awards ceremony at Carnegie Hall, I left so inspired and knew I wanted to be not only an artist, but a designer.”
She showed independently on sponsorship with Atlantic City Fashion Week for her runway debut in February of 2022.
According to her website, “Eliana currently enjoys soul-fulfilling work in her free time that gives back to the community- recently completed a mural project at the Cincinnati International Airport with ArtWorks Cincinnati leading a team of youth apprentices. Eliana hopes to continue to tie together her interests in community service, story-telling, and design in future projects.”
Her 2023 collection is called “Born of Love” an editorial inspired by Valentine’s Day & Eliana’s birthdays. Her 15 look’s collection was inspired by Lewis Carroll’s “The Walrus and the Carpenter.” This collection debuted at Atlantic City Fashion Week in February of 2022.
Eliana named her thesis collection from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago “The Weathering”. This collection was recognized by the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) and can be viewed on their Runway360 platform.
