The most important fashion week from Eastern Europe has changed its name this year, moving to the name consecrated to the major fashion weeks in the world.
This year’s Feeric Fashion Week took place July 16 – 24 2016 in Alba Iulia and Sibiu.
Last year, Eduardo Perez and Diego de Biase, the Argentinian designers behind the brand Sarah Jessy Jones have opened fashion shows from Alba Iulia during fashion week. From the path of the South American designers to the generous market of Eastern Europe, the success of fashion shows put on by the two designers has lead to a really impressive list of South American designers for this year’s edition. Therefore, alongside various other Argentinian designers, the public will see collections made by designers from Paraguay and Chille.
The international participation at Feeric Fashion Week does not stop here. During the 8 days on the Feeric Fashion Week catwalks, we witnessed a presentation of creations by famous designers from Spain, Singapore, Lebanon, Sweden, Malta, Serbia, Greece, Italy, France, Belgium and Germany.
The festival was structured on three sections of fashion shows. The individual fashion shows each year highlight the main attraction of the most creative fashion show from Europe. The creations of the designers were presented on the wonderful streets of downtown Sibiu, in the garden of Brukenthal Palace of Avrig, to the Stairs’ Passage, and in the Fortified Church from Cristian. The spacious area of Redal Expo was transformed into Feeric Venue during the festival. At the end of each festival evening, a themed party took place in Feeric Venue. The Feeric Gala closed the Feeric Fashion Week in the Small Square on the footbridge parallel with the Bridge of Lies. This is the most representative international image of the fashion week.
Various guests from the major fashion capitals have announced and attended at Alba Iulia and Sibiu for Feeric Fashion Week. Besides journalists and international bloggers who specialize in fashion, Feeric Fashion Week also hosted names, such as: Andrea Garmendia, (Argentinian TV star), Anama Fereira (model agency manager), including the famous Italian photographer Nicola Casini, Sherry Fan on behalf of the agency Sherry Models from Guangzhou, China and representatives of Wave Management Agency from Milan.
Feeric Fashion Week is an event co-financed by the Local Council of Sibiu through the Mayor’s Office of Sibiu and was organized by the Mayor’s Office of Alba-Iulia. This year’s edition of Feeric Fashion Week was organized in partnership with Jidvei.
