How did Bulgarian designers and fashion houses present our native design? What surprises have they prepared especially for their Italian guests?
Roshavata garga fashion house dedicated its collection to the wisdom of the ancient city of Rome, which combines the spirit of history and fashion. Albena Alexandrova selected twelve vintage apparels, inspired by the rich history of this city. Their style is eclectic, and they are made of natural fabrics: silk taffeta, cotton, linen. Kimono sleeves, volumetric and asymmetric cuts and bright colours – these are the accents in the collection. The bridal dress was decorated with white, green and red flowers – a symbol of the Bulgarian national flag.
Italian ballet dancers presented the current Kwiat collections – Kwiat Limited Editions and Kwiat Exclusive. The retro style from the ‘70s comes back but there are also decorations and embossed floral motives, which imitate engraving. The shapes are streamlined, extravagant or classic – appropriate for each taste. The colour palette for the season is fresh and motley and it includes grass green, bright red, as well as brave combinations between copper and golden shades and classical and stylish designs in black and white.
Miró company stayed again true to its motto To be modern means to be different. A feminine style, perfect cut, underlining the shapes and high-class materials are just a part of the entire impression of the collection. Fresh colours and original accents complete the exquisite outlook, which Miró gives to the fans of the elegant provocation.
Tania Ivanova told with the language of flowers a real fashion tale. Inspired by their beauty and elegance, the young designer presented dresses, inspired by a concrete flower - crocus, snowdrop, poinsettia, daisy among others. Bright colours, youth outlook and undisguised dose of sex appeal are the main messages in the collection of Tania Ivanova.
