3 for Cluj

Last week I introduced a new category on the blog, promising you a weekly selection of three new and exciting designers. This week’s selection is based on the list of nominees for Romanian ELLE Style Awards category “Best Young Designer”. ELLE Style Awards is one of the most anticipated events in the Romanian fashion industry due to the magazine’s notoriety, as well as for its effervescent selection of designers, models, photographs, artists, and more. This year’s nominees for “Best Young Designer” category were: Alina Morar, Emese Bako, Crina Bulprich, and Imaculatura (a fashion project coordinated by Anca Adina Cojocaru and Irina Constantin). The winner, Alina Morar, was announced yesterday during the Award Gala which was held in Bucharest.

What I found interesting in this year’s selection for this category is the fact that out of 4 nominees, 3 are young designers from Cluj-Napoca. Alina Morar, Emese Bako, and Crina Bulprich are graduates of the University of Art and Design’s Fashion Design department, and together with some of their design colleagues, under the thorough guidance of their University professors, have managed to reconfigure the Romanian fashion map. Although its capital city – Bucharest – is still functioning as headquarter for the fashion industry, with all its events, magazines, boutiques, stores, and connections, Cluj-Napoca is becoming a laboratory for young and fresh ideas and designers. The reasons for this shift is due to the city’s artistic buzz, as well as the UAD (University of Art and Design) on-going strive to create a dialogue with the international fashion scene through internships, scholarships and creative support offered to their students. The emerging group of fashion designers are already proving their relevance on the national fashion stage.

Identitati Absente

Nu sunt adepta copy paste-ului, dar din cauza lipsei de informatii ma simt nevoita sa apelez la aceasta alternativa. Din pacate nici participarea la eveniment nu este posibila…Oricum pare foarte interesant atat evenimentul cat si conceptul abordat de Liana Martin si Calina Langa si sper sa aflu mai multe detalii din articolele si pozele post-eveniment.

Expozitia IDENTITATI ABSENTE – Moda ca o pseudo-identitate este un eveniment-performance integrat in lucrarile de doctorat ale celor doua protagoniste: Calina Langa – in calitate de expozant si Liana Martin – in calitate dubla de expozant si organizator.

Gandita pe 5 module expuse static, in care a incremenit haina fara de subiectul principal, expozitia lasa locul unei sperante, in momentul cand incepe prezentarea propriu-zisa, unde vesminte-tablouri asezate de data aceasta pe trupurile reale ale manechinelor ne poarta in cromatica panzelor Soniei Delaunay. Linii simple, austere beneficiaza de aportul de culoare din plin, o culoare dispusa cu acuratete in cadrul formelor geometrice ce compun ahitectura vestimentara. Totul este posibil si revine la viata in momentul cand individul intelege ca pentru a-si modela exteriorul este nevoie de rapelul la spiritualitatea data de arta si cultura.

Evenimentul va avea loc in 7 aprilie 2011, in Piata Unirii din Cluj Napoca, intr-una din cele mai cunoscute locatii ale orasului, Clubul DIESEL.
