Romanian Fashion Week: Andreea Musat
Posted May 13th, 2008 by Dora Pavel
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.
The collection was inspired by Jadis, the White Witch from the "Chronicles of Narnia" series as well as by her performer, always fascinating Tilda Swinton. Hence, the collection's main character is a timeless and mysterious woman, a mix between classic femininity and futuristic androgynous beauty.
The young designer used different shades of white and grey, fabrics or appliqué with metallic sheen, mixing different textures and layers of fluid volumes and strict shapes. The result is an architectural silhouette like born of snow dunes and frost flowers. I love the message they send out: a glimpse of what's hidden under the ice, the mystery slightly unveiled...
