Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I was born in Romania in the late ’80s, a time when old crafts were still highly appreciated and the concept of fast fashion didn’t exist, and would probably be criticized today.
I was brought up in a family with strong values instilled by independent, beautiful women who never stopped fascinating me with their class and style. Instinctively, I passed those traits onto my work, by creating designs that reveal a womanâ€™s beauty and self-confidence.
I was still a little girl when I fell madly in love with silk and lace, and I remember feeling this uncontrollable need to touch every beautiful fabric I would come across. That, to me, was pure bliss. My favorite games were sneaking into my grandmaâ€™s room only to use her sturdy, loud, vintage sewing machine, or exploring through my motherâ€™s closet, in search for new materials for my dolls’ fancy wardrobe.
I taught myself how to hand sew when I was 8 years old and started pouring out my inspiration onto fabric, way before I bought my first sewing machine. I was mixing colors, fabrics, altering vintage pieces and recycling fabrics, and every garment I made, was a one-of-a-kind and hand-made to the last detail.
Moving to Miami in my early 20â€™s, opened up an entire world of inspiration and possibilities. The glam and lifestyle of the city matched perfectly with my vision of enchanting the modern woman with a sense of taste and class that seemed to be long forgotten.
Later on, I decided to bring my passion and creativity into the bridal world and started creating couture wedding dresses. Beautifully crafted, my gowns offer a twist on the traditional designs you have been accustomed to, adding a hint of boldness, while maintaining the specific grace and poise that represents my style.
