Good night, signora Sozzani…

  This is one of the most surprising news of this year. And a really sad one. Next to the one about Bowie or Alan Rickman leaving us earlier this year. I guess signora Sozzani wanted to move and live in a rainbow and watch us from out there. An extraordinary woman that I admired and considered as an inspiration since my first steps into real fashion, when I learned about her as I saw her in the front row of a…

Christmas time 2016 in Paris

Some days ago a swiss friend sent me a pirate video clip currently circulating on the net: old videos of riots that took place some ten or more years ago were edited and presented like images of an actual attack of immigrants on the capital of France. Violent street scenes terrorise a scared population with police incapable of handling the situation. The title was  “Paris occupied by immigrants – the media keeps silent”. As streets in Paris don’t resemble at all…

The first carbon dress constructed like a beemer: the interview with the designers

I say a lot that a car is “sexy”. And usually I say it about a dress, too. But if a dress would be not just as sexy, but as resistant and daring as the most innovative car? Therefore, when I found out that a couple of designers created a dress using the same carbon fibre found in the BMW i3 and BMW i8, I wanted to talk to them. And I asked Felder & Felder sisters about the process and their…

Happy birthday, Madge

As a teenager I had a fascination with Madonna like a lot of other girls my age – she had no voice, was not a beauty, no particular artistic talent beside being very bold and dressing in a great way long before she got surrounded by stylists or fashion designer friends to polish her choices and looks.  Of course I would have loved to shock and get dressed like her in class, but at 10 years old that would have been…

My Gala UAD 2016 notes

This time I decided I will rather make a kind of moodboard regarding the Gala UAD 2016 and it took me quite some time before I could reduce it all to the key moments. The Gala UAD, one of the essential fashion events in Romania, is the University of Art and Design from Cluj ceremony where students from Master and Licence degree present their very first collections. There is ambition, lot of talent and a highly professional preparation ensured by…

Dallas forever

When I was a child, Dallas was the ultimate experience on a Saturday evening. Mainly because I wasn’t allowed to watch it, at 20h00 children were in bed, not in front of the TV. I could watch my parents getting ready to receive their friends, preparing amazing pizza and tasty starters, fine wine or beer, while the TV had no sound and ABBA was playind cheerfully in the background. When the well known Dallas intro song started, I had to…

MET gala 2016 – the tech white tie theme

As I see it, this theme was trouble for most of the guests – and fashion houses involved. You can’t simply ask Valentino or Chanel “Please, a sexy-something-I-can-look-dashing-but-tech-enough-for-Wintour”. And you should use all humour you have to be original and nail it. I must admit, for me it was that kind of “take a bowl of popcorn and enjoy the show” where one’s personality will make the difference and justify the outfit. The criteria of the selection is very simple:…

Saint Laurent spring cleaning

While looking at Saint Laurent this morning on Instagram, the only thing I could see was a clean and minimalistic account. I was quite surprised and wonder what kind of communication strategy of the brand this is – there is no trace of Hedi Slimane or his work. And as what doesn’t exist on media, doesn’t exist in real life, I felt like in those movies where the past is clinically erased to forever change a story. Quite disturbing for…

Good Night, Zaha Hadid…

Instead of a song or remembering images with Zaha Hadid’s creations, today I imagined a conversation with THE very architect. Some years ago I tried to schedule an interview with her for a fashion magazine, but after 9 months I gave up in front of her always changing assistants and a very, very intense planning.  Of course today I do regret. I should have insisted in finding a solution to meet her. It might have been like this, my imagined…
