I knew Maria only from her online presence until one day, my friend Bianca introduced us. I’m gonna be honest, I was expecting to see a shy artist and a daydreamer, but Maria is much more than that. She is energy, she is determination, she is power and she is color.
I like to ask people about their color- I strongly believe that everyone has his own color, you know, like our way of being is related to a color; for example I think I’m yellow- I’m happy, optimistic, energized, solar . So I asked her as well, and she said she is purple, or turquoise. Which makes sense, but I think she is more like orange or red, cause she has this fire inside her, the fire of creation and the fire of succeeding. And it’s contagious!
We've met over a cup of tea to plan a video for her brand and we did this exercise to write down every word that’s coming to our mind when thinking of Maria’s art (and, of course, at her business of applied art). And you know what, it was so natural and organic that we kept and used them all. One is missing though. It was so obvious that we took it for granted, we did not mention it; nevertheless is everywhere, is the core of her business and what she transmits the most. It’s energy! Good energy.
I find it fascinating how everything starts with a white canvas and a brush, an emotion, and a thought and become a mix of feelings, energy, and good vibes. Enough talking, let’s watch the video and enter in the art mood. Don’t forget to visit her page and be prepared to be inspired every day, all the way.
If you visited this blog in the past years, you probably know about my friendship with Beautik Haute Parfumerie ( here and here), and the fact I looove to spend time there. Now ( well, actually last autumn), I visited them and decided to make myself a present. The perfume is such a personal experience, that I strongly believe it should be chosen by us directly and not received as a gift. Doesn't matter how well the "giver" knows us and our way of living, our sense of smell is emotional and we buy fragrances not only because we like their smell but also because they reflect our personality. Here are a few things you need to know about perfumes, when searching "the right one."
Last but not least, I'm very curious: do you actually form opinions about people based on the fragrance they’re wearing?
This is Ioana Ciolacu, who is great, comes from Iasi, lives in Bucharest, shows her collections in Berlin and is one the most talented young (Romanian) designers. I’ve known her for a few years now and I really admire her creativity and the way she goes about her fast growing brand.
She is one of those people who really shows that there are no limits when you follow your passions and it makes me admire her more. Did I also mention she has a sunny personality who just make people want to spend time with her? I know, one of a kind!
That being said, I thought you might be interested to enter a bit in her space, to find out regular stuff about her and to see me fooling around her studio, so here it is:
I've been searching through archives and found these pics taken some years ago at Autor - contemporary jewellery fair. Just in time to see the atmosphere and visit them during this weekend at their 12 edition
