WORDS BY THE AUTHOR / Ретроспективный. Retrospectif. Retrospective. This is what the project title means. Retrospective of Russian culture, the language in which the word is written. Retrospective of my culture, Romanian one, that is closely linked to the one named above. Retrospective of the fashion world and its history. Retrospective of my story, myself, everything I want to tell through this collection. Therefore, it’s a very intimate collection, full of feelings and passion. Colours and shapes weave the path that goes through the stories of cultures, worlds and people. To enter this collection, it’s necessary to understand it and the things behind it. It has to be visualized with the heart and not just with the eye. Letting yourself be guided by its loaded and colourful embroideries and structured forms is essential.
