After two full, but beautiful days in Alba Iulia we moved to another amazing city, Sibiu, for the second part of Feeric Fashion Days.
I started Tuesday with a very emotional moment. Atipic Beauty was present for the first time in the festival, and myself together with 11 fashion personalities and my blogger colleagues had the honour to walk the catwalk along with 12 persons in wheelchairs. Magda Coman, the president of Open Heart Assication told me in an interview that she wants all people with disabilities to be seen as normal persons, not to be isolated or discriminated anymore, and we gladly joined their message.
The day continued in a #feeric way, at Brukenthal Avrig Palace, where we had the honour to be on the stage again (I’m thinking about changing my career). Together with Dana Savuica, Anama Ferreira from Argentina and Catalina Magee from Tred Prive Magazine we were invited to be part of the argentinians Sarah Jessy Jones’ show. A collection as full of color as the one from Alba Iulia, but with much more new elements.
And the first day in Sibiu ended with an even more special show. My friend, Andra Handaric presented her collection, Isihia, a premeer on the Feeric Fashion Days stage. I met Andra at the beginning of 2014, in London, when she was doing an internship in the great Gareth Pugh’s workshop and since then I have been fascinated by her collections. I don’t know what to tell you first about the colleciton, except that I would have taken it all home with me. The pictures are more representative than any description.
But the #feeric days never end like this. After a lot of work comes the fun. Dj Sonia Rondini entertained us for a couple of hours.
A little sleep and the next day we start over with an even more amazing show on Sibiu’s airport. Romanian Designers by Afora presented their outfits from a Blue Air’ airplane in front of a large audience. The travelers who landed and the people that were about to leave were part of the public.
To cool off a little after the airport heat, we were invited to Villa Restaurant&Garden. We were welcomed with champagne and warmth in their chilly garden. A well-needed moment, considering the fact that outside were 39 degrees Celsius.
In the evening we moved to a more friendly space, the Evanghelic Church garden, where Bianca Pop presented her religious themed collection, which had an inspiration in the city of Amsterdam and the Dutch culture.
The last four shows of the day were hosted by Rena Events, where there were presented, one by one, Mihher, Go Style- a group of highschool kids with a passion for fainting, Spencer, a Romanian brand for men and Lise Charmel, the well-known brand of French lingerie.
After the work was done, Dj Dan Apetrei took the stage. And the party goes on for another three days, so I still have a lot to tell you.
