High fashion traditional Romanian blouse by Valentina Vidrascu

Valentina Vidrascu is a Transnistrian born fashion designer with a both emotional and esthetic attachment for the Romanian traditional blouse that inspired many artists and designers before – it has been famously captured by French painter Henri Matisse (La Blouse Roumaine, 1940) and turned into haute couture design by Yves Saint Laurent (1981).
