Maria Lucia Hohan's girlie glam credo

Maria Lucia Hohan is one of those quiet designers who steer clear of the gossip scene while focusing on developing a strong high-fashion brand. The result is red carpet recognition at the most important film festivals (Cannes, Berlin, BAFTA) and an international marketplace: MLH is present in big cities like New York, Tokyo, Copenhagen, Oslo, Athens or Singapore and online also.

Andreea Tincu pre-fall 2009 collection

Surprisingly polished collection from one of the Romanian art - trained designers, Andreea Tincu was presented at Pret-A-Porter Paris Fashion Trade Show.

Inspired by the futuristic, austere atmosphere of Gattaca (the movie) along with the concept of the new metropolis, Tincu's prefall 2009/2010 collection displays precise cuts and geometric volumes.

Coca Zaboloteanu shoes

Coca Zaboloteanu is an emerging Romanian shoe label synonym for playful-retro-chic style. Coca, a 26 years old fashionista, got a BA in Dental Medicine but decided to make her passion for shoes into a fashion business.

She started by drawing sketches and getting professional manual labor while learning shoe manufacturing techniques by herself. Shortly after she opened a small design studio in Bucharest and launched an exclusive line of unique shoes.

Romanian Fashion Week: Claudia Castrase

One of my favorite collections shown at Romanian Fashion Week is "Geometrics" by Claudia Castrase. The designer made her debut with the fall 2007 season and, in a very brief time, she has developed a well-established brand and a recognizable style based on simple, minimalist cuts, mostly body conscious and a preference for abstract, geometric details.

Romanian Fashion Week: Andreea Musat

The Romanian Fashion Days (8-9 May) staged thirty collections of Romanian designers destined for the fall/winter 2008/09 season. Six new names made their debut and one of them took the Mercedes Benz prize home. This was Andreea Musat with her wonderful "Winter Moods" collection.
