RFW Day 2

The second day started with a casual breakfast at the hotel. Good food, great people, especially with so many fashion peeps in one (big) room. We sat at the so-called table of the bloggers, with Alin Galatescu, organizer of Cluj Fashion Week joining us. Many fashion issues were discussed, about the good and (yes!) the bad sides of the Romanian fashion today.

A doua zi a inceput cu un mic dejun luat in sala de mese a hotelului. Mancare si lume buna, mai ales cand vezi atatia oameni ai modei laolalta. La masa noastra, a bloggerilor, s-a alaturat si Alin Galatescu, organizator al Cluj Fashion Week ce a avut loc in aprilie. Au fost discutate teme legate, bineinteles, de moda romaneasca cu calitatile si (ei bine, da!) defectele ei.

A couple of hours later, I went back in the room upstairs, wainting for the press conference at noon. So many concerns about the high temperatures outside, but nothing to do about it. Finally, a few minutes before 1 P.M. we went to the event venue (the press center) organised in tents outside the main building.

Cateva ore mai tarziu, am urcat inapoi in camera, in asteptarea conferintei de presa de la ora 13 si cu multa groaza fata de caldura care se insinua de afara. In cele din urma, putin inainte de ora 13, am plecat inspre Sala Sporturilor la centrul de presa.

It was obvious that time was flying fast and soon the shows will kick off. Many people around, all of them busy with the fittings: lots of models strolling around, designers, makeup artists and hairstylists.

Se vedea ca orele la care se va da startul prezentarile se apropie cu pasi repezi. Lumea mai multa ca in ajun pregatea fitting-urile: multe modele, designeri, echipe de hairstylisti si makeup artisti, pe langa jurnalistii si cameramanii care se invarteau peste tot.






The highlight of this pre-viewing must have been the shoes Lucian Broscatean will use for his show. The sole is carved wood. I didn’t get round to see the clothes but word is, they are even better.

Una dintre cele mai placute surprize au fost pantofii din lemn sculptat pe care Lucian Broscatean i-a imaginat pentru colectia pe care o va prezenta in aceasta seara. Nu am vazut si hainele, doar in cateva poze, dar se pare ca sunt si mai spectaculoase decat pantofii.


The space was almost ready for the show, some few chairs were being added here and there.

Sala era bineinteles, aproape gata pentru prezentari, in acele momente se aduceau toate scaunele pentru a completa randurile pana aproape de catwalk.











We go back to the press room where other chairs were ready for us. Lots of journalists, relatively small room, hot air again. The conference starts and the first to speak is, of course, Irina Schrotter. Right next to her stands Ovidiu Buta, whom we had the pleasure to personally meet the day before. On the couch, Andreea Raicu and Razvan Ciobanu.

In continuare ne intoarcem in sala unde erau aranjate alte scaune, pentru conferinta de presa. Jurnalisti multi, sala mica, caldura mare. Incepe conferinta, iar prima care vorbeste este desigur Irina Schrotter. Langa ea, Ovidiu Buta, pe care am avut placerea de a-l cunoste in ziua precedenta. Pe canapea, Andreea Raicu si Razvan Ciobanu.


With great enthusiasm, Irina spoke about the event saying that there are 33 collections all in all, one of the being special. Freudenberg SpA together with the RFW organisers have prepared a special moment, a collection in which each outfit is created by a different designer, using fabrics offered by Freudenberg. The idea was to make special garments to illustrate the way clothes are made, those small details we often don’t notice or even ignore.

Cu un avant si o rapiditate de remarcat, Irina a vorbit despre evenimentul care incepe in aceasta seara: vor fi 33 de colectii, una dintre ele fiind mai speciala. Este vorba de Freudenberg SpA, care impreuna cu organizatorii RFW au pregatit un moment mai special. Este vorba despre o colectie in care fiecare designer creaza o tinuta deosebita pentru a ilustra modul in care pot fi folosite materiale special oferite de Freudenberg cu aceasta ocazie. Vom putea vedea modul in care se construieste o haina, ce se pune pe interiorul ei: pernute, solutii pentru tivuri etc.

Tonight, the collection will be presented and one young designer will be awarded 1000 euros and a special promotion campaign.

La mijlocul serii de astazi va avea loc prezentarea acestor piese, urmand ca premiul (in valoare de 1.000 euro si o campanie speciala de promovare) sa fie oferit unui tanar designer.

About the collections, this edition of RFW gathers 6 debuts. Irina Schrotter will present her collection on the rhythms played by N.O.H.A., a band especially brought for the festival by Finlandia Vodka under the newest fashion platform, Finlandia Pure Vision. N.O.H.A. will also play at the afterparty today. It will be a good one, taking into account that Vali Barbulescu is responsible with the music mixes.

Referitor la colectii, aceasta editie RFW aduna 6 debuturi. Irina Schrotter isi va prezenta colectia pe muzica liva cantata de trupa N.O.H.A., care a fost adusa in exclusivitate pentru festival de catre Finlandia Vodka, sub cea mai noua platforma de fashion, Finlandia Pure Vision. Tot de trupa N.O.H.A. vom avea parte si la afterparty, care se anunta a fi incendiar pe ritmurile mixate de Vali Barbulescu.

After the conference, we rushed to hide from the heat on the terace of Cafepedia Iasi, were we also had lunch. Now we are waiting for tonight…

Dupa conferinta ne-am ascuns de caldura pe terasa Cafepedia Iasi, unde am luat si pranzul. Asteptam seara...
