Spring Summer 09 showing at Gaia Boutique
As I've told you earlier this week, on Saturday we were part of the FreeLove Fair at Gaia Boutique. On this occasion was the first showing of my s/s 09 collection and as I wanted to keep pace with what we've done at each fair so far, we've imagined a special setting this time also.
We've gone head over hells so that the setting idea could materialize perfectly.The whole story was to recreate in our small exponant's place an artist's workshop, therefore, I've set myself to hand paint 4 meters of white cloth with the pattern I've used throughout the s/s 09 collection. Then, we've borrowed some tripods from our friend photographer Cornel Lazia in order to rise the cloth on Gaia's walls.
After we've settled that out we moved on to arraging the remained space: brushes in all sizes and shapes, watercolors, pastels, jars filled with paint, sketches, wine glasses were all spread on the white carped we've brought in a artistically messy layout.
After two hours of sweaty preparations we were finaly ready to welcome everybody into our world....
The fair reunited 16 designers and was in my oppinion the best fair organised in Romania so far.The downside is that for such a display of forces, there were so little people to come and the ones who did came are the ones that come everytime.
That shows me clearly that in Romania people are not yet acquainted ( or they just don't care ) with the designer's worlds and would much rather go to the malls on Saturday and spend lots of money on bad quality overpriced series clothes.
Anyways in time maybe togheter with these happenings the masses will get habituated with the concept of designer wear and shall appreciate the fact that they can get such clothes at such prices compared to foreign young designers.
P.S: As I received so many emails after these photos appeared on Facebook, YES, the multicolored coned shouldered silk jacket is my one of my latest creations and I must tell you I am absolutely in love with it so you know why I am going to wear it again and again.
Have a fabulous weekend everybody,
