The Romanian Cultural Institute is delighted to announce their seventh consecutive participation at the London Fashion Week, one of the biggest congregations of fashionistas in the world. This year’s exhibition, entitled ‘Standpoint’, explores the intersections between the multiple layers of local and global – from reflections on the past and personal introspection, to the opportunities afforded by the wired world. Shining a spotlight on young creative talent, the Romanian project brings together five innovative designers boasting a striking sartorial style imbued with daring cuts and colours: Smaranda Almășan, Emese Bakó, Andreea Castrase, Sabina Pop, and Ancuța Sarca. The exhibition is designed by Attila Kim.
The international language of fashion becomes a means of communicating the unique experiences of each designer – the local distinctions that shape their practices and the immediate surroundings of their studios and the way they reinterpret the past. These creatives have one foot rooted in the traditional past, but the other is firmly grounded in a sartorial future energized by compelling conceptual backdrops and a vital playfulness.
‘Standpoint’ is part of the British Council and British Fashion Council’s International Fashion Showcase 2017, in association with London Fashion Week. The project is set up by the Romanian Cultural Institute in London in partnership with The Institute Bucharest and Romanian Design Week.
