Fabulous Fashion Event

ava1 

Dear wonderful people, remember last time I went at the Avanpremiere Gala? I was invited again at the event, the major fashion event in Bucharest which everybody is waiting for with excitement. This time eight designers, old and new, presented their Fall 2012 collections to the audience and I have to say I wasn't too impressed except for a bright new name and two others, you will see. 

Let's start with Ioana Ciolacu with her collection called "Aether". Black and white, wide silhouettes and interesting volumes, a collection as she put it, is an ode brought to the northern lands, hence the slightly sharp cuts.

 "RAW" by Anca & Silvia Negulescu didn't impress me too much, to be honest their Spring 2012 collection was much more interesting in my taste. But I have to say, the leather is wonderfully worked and the long dresses are quite appealing.

 This is Simona Semen's collection for Fall, the new face I was talking about, with a collection with a powerful meaning and a strong concept. The accessories are provided by Ioana Liliana Gheorghe; the contrast between the transparencies and the matte fabrics is well balanced and the Gothic silhouettes take us into a deep lonely story. The monachal concept is surrounding the idea of finding your inner spirituality.

 Lucian Pop - "Maya" Another surprise regarding men's fashion, this is a modern collection with beautiful colors, amazing bags and accessories, taken it's influence from the Maya civilization

Carmen Secareanu - "New Age College" I am not a fan of her, and her collections don't inspire me and it's hard to explain her vision, her aesthetic doesn't resonate with me, but I liked the jewellery this time

Natalia Vasiliev really dazzled me with her "Golden Party" collection, there were some particular pieces with solid architectural forms that really amazed me and the sophisticated fabrics..brocade and velvet, managed to create a royal, very feminine collection. She took her inspiration from the aristocracy of old Sankt Petersburg and the nocturnal mysteries of Paris and there it is:

Iris Serban - "Spirits of Nature" - She has a signature style, which you can definitely see in every collection; she plays with the fabrics so beautifully and the lace applications and structures embody the pieces naturally, thus creating a interesting relation between the human and the nature.

  Dinu Bodiciu - "Transient Bodies" Now this is a collection I didn't understand..some pieces were completely from another film, didn't had anything to do with the others and what was with those horns? Okay, to surprise the savage note from the concept of this collection but still..

It had its ups and downs (one main down was the heat and the poor buffet..) but I am looking forward for the next edition and maybe I will be surprised then too - in a good way.

Hi Anaivilo !!
Wonder full blog on fashion.I'd like some advice too.
In summer, your skin is exposed to external factors like free radicals, wind, harsh weather, stress, and the ultraviolet radiation found in sunlight.
