I remember sooner this year when I walked in the first edition of TIMIȘOARA FASHION WEEK, it was the first time I ever saw a fashion show.
Expectation, excitement, exuberance – the three E‘s that always describe a fashion show or a fashion week.
fashion– fash·ion| \ˈfa-shən / noun – a sense of style that changes from decade to decade, century to century; each era of fashion can change by very little or drastically.
Now, TFW 2 is already my 5th time attending an event of this type. Meeting amazing people, discussing fashion & blogging matters – it all makes you realize that all this world, which in the beginning may appear to be a purely virtual one, is far from being so. Communicating, escaping from the digital space of a blog and creating a real, massive, touchable world by building connections with other people just like you, that‘s what a fashion week is about. That‘s what TFW 2 was about.
TFW 2 takes place at Galla Events, which is a gorgeous venue located in the Green Forest, Timișoara, featuring a great architectural style and an intimate atmosphere, as it is far away from the city noise.
– DAY 1 –
The first day of TFW2 was on everybody’s lips. It proved everyone that it’s a constantly improving event, ready to show the best of it to the world.
The first show to take place at TFW 2 belonged to the famous designer Cătălin Botezatu, who was also responsible with the catwalk organisational matters. The collection intitled Ludovic XV featured an ensemble of precious garments, crowns and exuberant gowns.
Also, Felix Ramiro impressed the male public with amazing fabrics and breathtaking tailoring:
Next, I’ll talk about two young designers who have an impressive view of the modern society and the way fashion should evolve. Alexandru Ghencea with his collection, BALD BARBIE, chose to talk (through his clothes) about the underestimated identity of the Barbie doll, a first step to a healthy personal development, portrayed by crazy fur, black & white stripes, lots of pink and glittery platforms. On the other hand, Ionuț Piscureanu presented his collection entitled THE LABEL. Century XX(X)I. Memories from the future, which was developed on the idea of the consumer character’s aesthetics, featuring 3D labels, QR codes, plastic and much more.
Another interesting collection was Anileda‘s, featuring a really unique way to present handbags:
To end my first day’s favourites, I’ll show you a dress signed Atelier Mirabel, that mesmerized me. Isn’t it gorgeous?
As for what I wore, I went for a glam style with a tiny shade of sporty, by styling a lingerie dress with a velvet hoodie, spicing it all up with pearls and heels, just like this:
My oufit consisted of:
- lingerie dress – Zara
- velvet hoodie – Zara
- leather stilettos – Amely
- shimmery socks with pearls – Calzedonia
- pearl necklaces – local vintage shops
- vintage clutch – local vintage shop
– DAY 2 –
The second day of TFW2 was as memorable as the first one. The first show belonged to Cătălin Botezatu, this time featuring a menswear collection – VIGGO, mixing virgin wool with precious silk. The catwalk became more than a usual fashion runway as it turned into a theatre scene where the models were talking over a glass of wine while smoking cigars.
Another gorgeous show was Luna Morgaciova‘s, focused on wearable art. She transfered her paintings, collages and illustrations onto fabrics. Sensitive and bold, her collection was one of my favourites of the entire evening.
Atelier Ioana Călin also had a creation worth mentioning. I’m talking here about this gorgeous bridal jumpsuit, isn’t it just breathtaking?
Micle Andreea, with her collection HUMAN INTERRUPTED, expressed a manifest on the fragile line between the work hours and the private life, using deconstructed blazers, pyjamas and barefoot models.
Mineli also impressed me with snakeskin boots (such a surprise, isn’t it???), but not only.
If you are a belt-bags lover, you’re gonna adore Brush:
Emily Burghelea, finalist of the Romanian style competition – Bravo, ai stil! presented her energic collection DEEPENDENT by Emily Burghelea, featuring school vibes, deconstruction and a lot of fun!
That was it with my favourite collections from TFW2, but there’s no way I’d skip the cutest moment of the evening, which belonged to the first girl that walked the Gloris Galan presentation, holding a CAAAT in her arms!
Talking about my outfit, I wore an asymetrical leopard print dress with some western-vintage vibes, just like this:
My oufit consisted of:
- leopard print dress – Remix
- vintage leather lace-up biker jacket – local second-hand shop
- western ankle-boots – Pull & Bear
- Dius Roses Snake Ring – Maison Dius
