Today I need to share an unpublished post with you. I don’t know how I forgot to hit the publish button on this, especially because it’s one of my favourite. It’s about a very special designer, a designer I have been following and supporting since her beginning as a nominee for Designer of Tomorrow Award. Ioana Ciolacu won as deserved and has since come a long way. She returned to Berlin Fashion Week every time following her win as DfT and I visited every show. Her designs and fashion inspire me and I love following her and seeing how each season evolves. The Ioana Ciolacu show was one of my favorite experiences during fashion week. I visited her backstage with Phillip, talked to her as the tension minutes to the show built up. I took a closer look at the pieces that were ready to hit the runway just minutes after and watched as the make up artists created her runway makeup looks and got the models dressed and ready.
I watched the show from the runway as Phillip stayed backstage and experienced the entire spectacle from behind closed doors. He captured all the special moments for me, as I watched my favorite looks walk the runway. Enjoy the post! I love all the images!
Fashion week is coming up again next week and in honour of it returning I’m throwing it way back to last season. Let the rumble begin..
