A FABULOUS NEWS
I am so sorry I couldn't manage to write for a while now but once I spread u the fantastic news you will totally understand.
Ok, so the thing is I have been invited to the OXFORD FASHION WEEK 3rd of May - 8th of May 2009 this major fashion event and I have been super super busy to create some pieces for the show.
"An intellectual fashion...a new fashion event hopes to change all. Oxford Fashio Week will take place this MAy from 3 to 8 of the month hosting a range of events which bring the best of European fashion to Oxford." VOGUE
The invitation caught me by such a surprise... and I was happy to hear that Andreea Esca had the kindness to recommend me to the organiers giving the fact that I only met her once at a party but I used to exhibit my clothes in the first concept store in Bucharest Melkior which she owned, so , the content I felt was even greater. After she recommended me the organisers had a preselection of the designers and I was chosen to take part in the fashion week at the CONCEPT SHOW DAY ( 05.05.2009 ).
" Step in the surreal theatre of the most avantgarde creations in fashion ". Featuring a line-up of the hottest new names to watch- spanning students, fashion mavericks and established names...incredible fashion.
Featuring the most innovative and avant-garde creations of up and coming designers as well as students and established names such as: Marithe et Francois Girbaud, Eva Nip, Corina Vladescu, Topshop Unique..." Oxford Fashion Week official website
You can all imagine the excitement I felt only at the thought of presenting my designs next to Marithe et Francois Girbaud and others of such. In the festival will also present huge names such as Alexander Mc Queen.
I have been busy as a bee these past three weeks working day and night for some breathtaking new pieces for the show ( photos as sonn as I get them from catwalk ). I don't want to reveal much but I can tell you that all the team, me and the artisanes had no rest during this time and I designed one jacket which took alone 2 weeks of non-stop working. It is a three dimensional arhitectural piece which is the apple of my eye ( my soul piece ) and even now thinking of it it touches me. Can't wait to see the photos myself as the timing was so thight that when the curier arrived to pick them up I had to kindly ask him to wait a little longer in time for the girls to iron them in shape one last time.
Hope I can manage to get there as well as I started looking for some good accomodation offers and plane tickets by now.
I am thrilled to experience and aspire everything and come back full of inspiration and stories to tell you.
With love until next time,
