Mes cheries, while I’m writing this text, I realize that I’m very excited. After 17 years of modeling, one shouldn’t feel butterflies in stomach when it comes to announce that they are the image of a new campaign. Just that this time, it’s about MA RA MI, a Romanian brand, which is making a difference both in the local landscape and abroad – which makes me feel very proud, but also makes my heart beat louder.
„For me you are a fashion icon, and for Romania, you are THE ICON, and I simply couldn’t see anybody else suitable to represent and emphasize my clothes”, Andra Clitan wrote to me at the beginning of summer (the extremely talented designer, who’s story is right here ), asked me to be the image of her campaign for the fall/winter 2015 collection. I admit that I felt honored. Especially that I adore her creations and wear them any time I have the occasion.
So, here we are staging a heartbreaking story, having focus on a collection inspired particularly by Arab culture from the used materials such as natural silk, organza, velvet and veil of silk or brocade, to the colors which are discrete, easy to match and wear, marked sometimes by explicit red shades, full of personality.
The outfits from the fall-winter 2015 collection are designed in several layers – characteristic of the Arab world – with pieces designed from nude materials, as the basis for the main outfit. Andra Clitan used, as she already accustomed us, couture techniques, as well as a careful selection of fabrics, soft furnishings and subtle details. Below, I invite you to discover the look book and I hope to carry these unique pieces of clothing in as many original combinations as possible.
