The concept and title of the clothing collection” SILVER RAYS "translated" Silver Rays", intends to convey the rich meanings of this color that come in the form of several connotations, some of which are found in the proposed collection would be light, success, elegance and wisdom.

Can you share any anecdotes about the creative process behind this collection?
For this collection we also used Roma cultural elements, this time such as: the headscarf with pennies, which is representative of the traditional Roma port. I want to highlight the authentic roma culture and to draw attention to the acceptance of culture and people of ethnicity, cultural diversity being an area to which we can each contribute through what we achieve. The collection is part of the couture clothing category, consisting of several eccentric pieces that shape the image of the future. It consists of: trousers, dresses, coats, capes and blouses, and the materials used are veil, transparent materials, velvet, metallic materials, silver and sequins of various sizes.
I chose this topic because being of Roma ethnicity, I believe that I am able to promote the Roma culture through what I prepare in the professional field. Roma culture was an important inspirational element in fashion, used by the great designers of the world of all time, through their own vision. Through this collection we brought novelty in the Roma culture, a modern, realistic prosperity, using discreet details representative of the Roma. For example, I chose to highlight through the proposed outfits, a neat accessorization, to give up the idea of presenting very colorful traditional Roma outfits, with multiple accessorizations. Through this collection I wanted to find new functionalities, another way of promoting the stylistic of the Roma culture, this time giving up the strong color palette and using different, modern, spectacular chromatic associations.
