  • " Zamane"  shirt / /moroccan pattern inspired from the "Caïdal" tent , the black "qandil" (oil lamp) symbol of conviviality, care, richness of  the interior  and interest brought to the hosts !! Many are imagining the patterns as a chess  symbol ☺ and it can be true  as  the "caïdal" or "makhzen" tents, as the name indicates, have a strong political  meaning!  it was  designed for feudal rulers  under the french  protectorate !  The artisans at that time might had a lot of thoughts  to come up with this symbol design in the end ✌  and you what do you see ?  Chess or lamp ?  #postcolonialreflexion  #culturedesign #fashion  #moroccanstyle #identity #experimentation #ghittalaskrouif

  • Having spent time with my family over the holidays, I’m reminded of the great distance we’ve come. I grew up in Transylvania, but of Hungarian descent which made it that much more challenging under the communist dictator, Ceausescu in Romania.

I was 10 when we arrived to the US and very quickly realized that fashion was so much more important in this country. This concept of fashion being expressive instead of being utilitarian. 
_____________________
I see a tangible trail right back to Transylvania in my choices of fabrics. I want to spend 2018 honoring my roots and sharing more of my design process. Contrary to popular belief, Transylvania was not a dark place filled with vampires. It was a fairytale land filled with beauty and inspiring craftsmanship. From needlepoint to fruit preserves, everything was made by loving hands.

🍃We lived in harmony with the nature, raising vegetables and chickens and feared visits from the foxes.

🕊Animals were celebrated, for example, if a stork came to nest in your chimney, it was a sign of good fortune.

🏰My parents would read me fairytales at night which seemed so real as the landscape nearby was dotted with castles. 
_____________________
😴I remember a heavy embroidered carpet hung on the wall next to my bed to keep the draft away as I slept.

💪👱‍♀️I remember being surrounded by strong the women who had to deal with food shortages and political pressures while maintaining a vibrant, color filled home.

🌹Beauty was the only prevailing weapon against communist suppression and as such, it still fuels my desire to bring it to life.
