This past Friday, me, the boyfriend, a couple of good friends, and a handful of fashion bloggers
attended the 8th edition of Avanpremiere Fashion & Lifestyle Gala
at The National Museum of Contemporary Art.
This edition featured the Fall/Winter 11/12 collections of 9 Romanian designers: Andreea Tincu
& Sense, Bianca Popp, Anca & Silvia Negulescu, Vika Gorencu, Iris Serban & Christelen B,
Rhea Costa, and the two debuts of “Rue des Trucs” (Simona Semen & Alina Buzila)
and Sandra Chira. The shoes were provided by Cristhelen B, Il Passo, Hunter UK,
and the accessories by Oana Calin, Maria Filipescu and Dana Stefanoiu.
The event really was a lovely excuse to get together and talk Fall fashion trends, new designers, old favourites, and the course of the Romanian Fashion segment in general. Because whether I, and sometimes even we, liked or disliked a collection, the entire event did stir up a long and fruitful conversation. However, as you already know, if I have nothing good to say about something, I’ll rather not say anything at all. Thus, bellow you will find only some of my favourites from all the presentations, but if you want to see the entire collections stay tuned to Pret A Protester and check them out there.
Proceed with caution and prepare your browser for a picture heavy post. As always, I hope you enjoy 🙂
