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.

Botanica lui Agnes Keszeg

Pe Agnes Keszeg am  remarcat-o pentru prima data in paginile revistei ELLE. Siluetele sale diafane  infatisau, intr-o maniera inedita, cele 12 semne zodiacale. Ce m-a fascinat inca de la inceput  in lucrarile sale a fost  sensibilitatea prin care ea reusea sa portretizeze feminitatea. Am aflat ulterior  ca munca ei ca ilustrator nu se limiteaza la aparitii in reviste de moda ci poate fi regasita in carti pentru copii, volume de poezie sau imprimate pe suprafete de matase. Esarfele ei nu constituie doar un accesoriu vestimentar ci o extensie a personalitatii purtatorului, o poveste ce te infasoara. Noua ei colectie de esarfe, asterne pe aceleasi suprafete matasoase, flora unui spatiu imaginar luxuriant. Acest spatiu, populat de fluturi efemeri, ne invita sa evadam dintr-o realitate in care frumusetea este pe cale de extinctie. Imprimeurile create de Agnes ne propun explorarea minutioasa a unui spatiu aflat sub lupa unui creator desavarsit

Aceasta colectie este creata in exclusivitate pentru magazinul online molecule f. Cei care doresc sa isi achizitioneze un accesoriu unic pentru tinutele de vara si nu numai, pot vizita http://www.molecule-f.com.
