I believe that sustainability in fashion is just an aspiration towards utopia in which the human can manufacture without having a negative impact on the planet. We are quite far away from this perfect world, however, my mission as a designer is to find ways of creating, while keeping my carbon footprint to a minimum.

Instead of ‘sustainable’, ‘resourceful’ can better describe my work. My brand is all about using existent resources, reinventing them, and giving them a new meaning.

People play a really important role in my practice as all my work is based on their “donations” and the stories they carry. They ensure the spontaneity and authenticity of my brand.

For my graduate collection at London College of Fashion, I am reinterpreting Romanian craft techniques using contemporary practices such as moulaging and embellishing. These are then enhanced by monumental, rounded shapes and intuitive textile surfaces.
