Gala Avanpremiere - 11th edition

avp5

I was invited at the Avanpremiere Gala on the 27th and only today, after I got back in Cluj this morning, I  finally caught a moment to post the photos. It's been a busy few days, meeting people and just enjoying good times.
This year, the Gala took place at Bell'Agio Casa, I was excited to meet all the girls there and well.. it was a fun night. But due to the fact that my seat was not in the best angle, I missed the first collection, so I couldn't take any photos..but I will show you the official ones I received via e-mail.

The first collection was presented by CARMEN CHERECHES, a graduate student at the same University I am in now, it is called "Lost ..in dreams" and it investigates the mysteries of the imaginative world in relation to our real world where we actually live in.
I personally loved the structures and the details.

STEFAN MUSCA - "Silence II", a continuation to his first collection called "Silence I", a modern collection dominated by black.

ANCA&SILVIA NEGULESCU - "Raven"
The collection emphasizes the inner turmoil repressed in the surreal, just like the the raven a mysterious, dark and yet elegant bird. There was as always leather, this time gold and black, embracing the silky soft dresses like an armor, the effect is very nice indeed.

LOREDANA NOVOTNI - "SacRED"
Another graduate student from Cluj, currently living in Spain, presents this couture collection, entirely made by hand and entirely in a passionate red color which in her vision is a symbol of immortality. It is the color of blood and passion, the color of fire and sacrifice.

SIMONA SEMEN - "Geometry of Soul"
The designer is in search of the inner balance. Its spiritual origin lies in Tibet, she "borrowed" those elements and juxtaposed them with plane forms and volumes of our modern days inspired from the urban jungle that we live in. I admit not all pieces were favorites of mine..

IRIS SERBAN - "Elements"
As always she graces us with opulence, with feminine, romantic shapes mixed with masculine elements, such as belts, pants, the harness that engulfs the sophisticated laces. Beautiful, almost too beautiful.. I personally love the 4th and the 7th piece.

NATALIA VASILIEV - "Dreams of Florence"
If last season Natalia impressed me with that royal collection, this time I felt that she pushed it too far, I mean, looking at some pieces I have that feeling of" too much is.. too much" ( I am referring to those dresses with lace and golden draping) But there where two dresses which stirred up the crowed, those with the '50s silhouette and with the lase-cut patterns in minty green and a delicate pastel-blue..I would die for such a dress!
Now THAT IS FEMININE!

Tropical Autumn

 I forgot that the weather in Bucharest is much more warmer that the rest of the country so as you can see, the leaves are still hanging on tree branches and I was only wearing a T-shirt..shocking indeed.
 I met with an old friend of mine and we talked for hours and hours, nearly forgotten to ask her to take me these photos. Then, as we walked around my so familiar places which filled me with a some degree of melancholia, we ended up in my favorite pastry shop and we ate the wonders in the last two photos. I tell you..that cake served me as lunch and dinner for the whole day! Simply delicious. Tomorrow is another day for more delicious encounters!
Soon I will be getting ready for the Avanpremiere Gala (the reason why I came here in the first place) but more on that soon.. Stay with me darlings!
