romanian glam

Back to fashion... oh, and how I've waited for this post. No matter how long time ago I made this collection, (which is actually a year or so) I still enjoy it. I made these for an exhibition in Serbia, but I don't know how, I've finished college and the exhibition still didn't happen. So I could say I worked hours and hours in vain to finish these illustrations, but I really don't feel I've lost my time. I would really love to put these into fabric but it would take a lot of work, time and money, and also traditional wear was overdone this season that when I'll actually finish with the collection, I'll be so last season. I'll see, maybe for my MA degree.

Anyway, the outfits are inspired by the complicatedly simple traditional costume from my small country, especially from the Banat area, that being the region of my hometown. The pieces of the designs come not only from female outfits but from men's wear too. From that image of the traditional dress, I made it couture by creating something chic, glamorous and stylish.
