Romania's Up & Comers: Cristina Brad

Revenind cu gandul la City Fashion Week, prilej al intersectiei dintre talent si frumos, am ales sa initiez o serie de mini articole cu si despre colectiile, care si-au lasat amprenta asupra mea. Am sa incep saga cu Secret Gardeno colectie superba in culori delicioase, cu insertii deosebite. Frumosul concept care a dat nastere colectiei Secret Garden, apartine Cristinei Brad si se inspira din "gingasia florilor si eleganta pasarilor in zbor". Fiind impresionata de creatiile acesteia, am abordat-o din dorinta de a intelege procesul creativ, care a condus la rochiile superbe de pe catwalk-ul City Fashion Week. Am aflat ca in spatele rochitelor feminine si delicate se ascunde o experienta foarte personala si speciala. Cu toate ca Secret Garden se inspira din natura, venirea pe lume a fiului sau in perioada debutului de primavara a intarit procesul creativ, iar 'efectul bebe', dupa cum il numeste ea a sporit feeria, desavarsind inedita colectie. 

Colectia este speciala datorita pasiunii Cristinei pentru personalizare, fiecare piesa contine detalii lucrate manual. Se foloseste de asemenea de colaje textile, pictura pe materiale textile si insertii de pene. Este preocupata de transformarea materialelor din comert pentru a crea un produs unic, personalizat, construind o identitate puternica pentru creatiile sale. 

Creatiile Cristinei Brad le puteti gasi pe pagina ei de facebook: Cristina Brad
V-am pregatit totusi o selectie cu pozele sale, ca sa va indragostiti de stilul feminin si aplicatiile delicate ale creatiilor Cristinei Brad:

Going back to the amazing City Fashion Week experience, meeting point of the skill and aestethics, I chose to create an articles' saga, concerning the clothing lines that inspire me. I would like to start with the Secret Garden, a mesmerising collection, in beautiful colours and with gorgeous inserts. The outstanding concept, that brings together the main traits of spring, "the gentleness of flowers and the elegance of flying birds" belongs to the young designer, Cristina Brad. I approached Cristina to find out more about her creative process, about what inspired her to create such beautiful pieces. I was so pleased to discover that even though her main inspiration came from nature and spring, the feature that took her inspiration to the next level was the birth of her son. The baby effect, as she calls it, managed to create this magical surrounding, that eventually inspired her to create Secret Garden.  

The factor that sets her appart is her passion for personalization, each piece has hand made details. She also uses textile collages, painting on fabric, feather inserts. She wants to create unique items, therefore she transforms fabrics to achieve a powerful identity for her pieces.
