The audience of Bucharest is now granted the opportunity to enjoy high-class events in the fields of fashion and garments, various presentation and manufacturing ideas, exquisite fashion shows, photography exhibitions and other surprising events during the second edition of the “Bucharest – Paris Bridge” Festival that started in Bucharest on Wednesday night and is due to take place until May 31.
This year’s edition of the festival is an impressive one, with new events, numerous guests and more events. A new idea for this year’s edition is a fashion fair organized by the French Institute of Bucharest, an edition targeted on the presentation of creations by young Romanian fashion designers. This year’s theme of the festival is the wedding. “I consider appropriate that the 2009 edition of the “Bucharest – Paris Bridge” festival has selected this fortunate theme, in a period when the main conversation topic is the economical crisis. We must never lose our faith in renewal,” the French Ambassador to Bucharest Henri Pasul declared. Another novelty brought by the festival is the competition entitled “Espoir mode,” dedicated to young artists, providing these the opportunity to present their own creative vision, expressed in clothes’ collections.
The young designers selected in the “Espoir mode” competition are Andra Clitan from Bucharest, Popoviciu Laura from Oradea, Istvan Cimpan from Cluj and Anca Ioana Petrea from Braila. The Four designers were selected by a jury of French and Romanian fashion experts, presided by Doina Levintza, and are considered as representative for the young Romanian fashion. They will be granted a chance to exhibit their collections to the French Institute of Bucharest, and the creations of the artist who will win the final stage of the competition will be exhibited and promoted by the new residence of the French Fashion Institute in Paris during the Fashion Week of March 2010.
Not only young designers will exhibit their works during the festival, but also consecrated names of fashion. Richard Rene, the French designer invited to this edition of the festival, will present a haute – couture collection in Bucharest, as a preview to the presentation in Paris. Richard Rene has worked as an assistant for the famous Jean – Paul Gaultier.
The fashion fair at the French Institute will host creations by 30 young Romanian designers.
The French Institute will also host the broadcast of a documentary that presents a work day in the workshop of the famous designer Yves Saint Laurent and the film “Coco Avant Chanel,” starring Audrey Tautou.
