Romanian Fashion Exposed

21/02/2019 @ Romanian Cultural Institute, 1 Belgrave Square, London SW1X8PH

The Romanian Cultural Institute in London continues in its endeavour to promote upcoming Romanian designers with a special showcase at 1 Belgrave Square, which coincides with the prestigious London Fashion Week. The exhibition, set up around the idea of timeless style and experimentation, will explore original takes on fashion design in a fast-moving industry. The alluring, versatile garments of Gabriela Rose, an established luxury brand on the British market, will be presented alongside the minimalist, ready-to-wear outfits of Thaïs & Ströe, one of Bucharest’s favourite apparel brands.

Gabriela Rose is a well-established luxury brand recognised for ingenious twists of classic designs and seamless finishing. Launched in 2011 by designer Gabriela Popa, it is characterised by combining quintessentially English, carefully tailored tweed fabrics with cleverly inserted brightly printed jacquard linings. Having also invented the ingenious velvet Rose Wrap, her take on fashion likewise reflects a high regard for carefully handmade garments, innovative techniques and personal artistic touches, redefining classic designs with spectacular results. 

THAÏS & STRÖE is an apparel brand based in Bucharest. The founders, Thais Coman and Oana Stroe, are two fashion designers who have had their formation in Bucharest and Bologna, at Accademia di Belle Arti. With minimalist and clean aesthetics, the brand creates chic and comfortable ready to wear garments for the modern woman and man. The garments are created with personalised fabrics that are carefully selected and manufactured. The two designers believe that, more than emphasizing the shape of a body, clothes are meant to highlight a personality.
