A few words about me…
Two years ago I’ve graduated the Fashion Design Course at „Tiberiu Brediceanu” School of Arts in Brasov and Ițve recently graduated a programming university. However, my passion will still be fashion design. A passion I can say that I have forgotten for the past two years, not because I wanted to, but being a full-time student, working and finding time for your own passions can be quite difficult sometimes.
As for the blog (and not only), I have a lot of plans that I can’t wait to put in practice and I would be really happy if you would join me in this journey. There are many surprises coming here, on Facebook, and on Instagram!
Fashion through the eyes of a programmer
This post is the first in a series of articles in which I will share with you some of my „adventures” trying to mix up together the life of a programmer with the one of someone who is passionate about fashion and design.
My interests in creative hobbies started to appear in the general 8th grade of general school when I discovered the store „Galeria Creativ” in Brasov, a place where I still love to come back not only because I find all the materials I need, but and because it inspires me a lot. From here, I used to get everything I needed to create handmade jewelry and accessories. But I also enjoyed drawing and I still remember that one piece that I was the most proud of (which unfortunately I don’t have anymore): the princess Ariel, in A3 format, which was sticked on the wall near my bed.
My „journey” into the fashion world, however, started a little bit later when I joined the fashion design course. Here I met some wonderful teachers who taught me a lot of things and to whom I am extremely thankful. From idea to sketch, from sketch to croqui, from croqui to a real garment. That’s what I learned in the three years I went to the classes not just because I was supposed to, but because it was a refuge, a place where I could relax, forget everything and do what I liked to do.
At the end of these three wonderful years, I chose to present a white dress with silver sparkling applications, a design that I will definitely replicate in the future in some more colors.
In 2016, ELLE magazine Romania together with Mazda organized a contest, „Mazda Kodo Urban Fit”, where the participants had to draw inspiration from the design of the new Mazda and translate the concept into clothing. I wanted to create pieces of clothing with a classic look, but with catchy details. So I signed up with the following designs with which helped me qualify into the final stage of the contest.
The photos I used when I joined the contest can still be seen on ELLE Romania’s website.
