Have you heard of DADA? Well yes, it;s a real WORD and yes you can find it in the Dictionary! DADA is famous in the world of ART in the world of FASHION….. It is a must in a cultural society.

What is DADA!

Dada was an art movement formed during the First World War in Zurich in negative reaction to the horrors and folly of the war. The art, poetry and performance produced by dada artists is often satirical and nonsensical in nature. (Wikipedia) 



DADA defines itself and creates itself in the fashion world….. DADA originated in Europe 1916 and never actually stopped if you ask me….From Originator Marchel DuChamp the DADA movement in the fashion industry had a hard time first and was shocking. Vivienne Westwood, was one of the first fashion designers who broke the boundaries and DADA was born or moved into the fashion industry. After that it was easy and more acceptable for designers like Galliano , Maison Martin Margiela or Victor & Rolf to push more and more!



You probably think that these pigiont shoes are just art or insane, well theses days everything is DADA and it will go further and further… because we humans need to break through the boundaries, not only for our self but for future generations….. there is no stop to DADA or creativity…. All is possible!

So enjoy a cup of coffee, and create some DADA.….

By the way when I broke into a traditional world of Romanian Point Lace where everything is beige, ecru or white my colourful pieces and not traditional concept and approach to this antique lace making technique, was a shocking fabulous adventure!

Most people did not understand and did not like the idea that something so old and perfect…. is not colourful, not for the table and more….. meaning a wearable piece, a concept to take to another level.

Do you like DADA?





Adieu mon ami….. Hubert de Givenchy

Adieu mon ami….. Hubert de Givenchy

Adieu mon ami……


Hubert de Givenchy is gone… The fashion world lost a great designer, a man who lived for style, elegance, fashion and the good taste when it comes to dressing women all over the world. 

There is not much to say, when you are sad and best is to keep in memory looking back at his great pieces, from Haute Couture to Ready to Wear, he understood, body, style, fabric, draping and elegance via simplicity.

His signature look was the shoulder wrap dress and fabulous sleeves.

 A divine look that made fashion history. These chiffon puff sleeves also are forever in the fashion world archives as a great example for pure elegance and style.

He gave us a lot. Givenchy your style will be missed. One of the last couturier leaves us with great designs and hopefully they will be passed on to the next generation of young designers. Paris and the world is sad. Fashion must go on…..

“Luxury is in each detail”. – Hubert de Givenchy

His eye for the details and the feminine look was marvellous. A true connoisseur of fabrics, threads, and eye for embroidery and for beauty.

His muse was no other than Audrey Hepburn a great actress and ambassador for the brand. He created most of her outfits for the movies she played in. He connected cinematography with fashion like no other.

We all remember the black dress from Breakfast at Tiffany, it;s now not only a piece of history , it;s iconic and will always be in fashion. Givenchy you rocked the fashion world and you will be missed!

What is your favourite outfit from Givenchy? I can;t even pick there were so so so many!
