The dreams are made of lace and passions: interview with the designer of Parlor
I did it again. Somewhere, somehow, between the white delicate dresses, the soft silk red tops and the warm of the pink coats… I lost the sense of time. And it happens every time I enter the Parlor studio. I know Veronica Zaharia, the cool designer behind one of the most beautiful and well-cared brands in Romania, for years. And every time is a real treat to talk to her about everything, from couture to social media, from travel to sports and dancing.
About the latest collection of Parlor – here.
My first love story with fashion design has started with…
… my grandmother’s gorgeous outfits and my grandfather’s tailoring atelier full of fabrics and patterns.
The most precious moment in my fashion designer career would be…
… the moment I created my first dress, which I still wear and I still imagine it in different ways for every Parlor collection – Lolita dress.
My impossible dream in designing dresses would be…
… designing the “Made in Romania” is something I am proud of. I don’t want to be pessimistic by saying that soon this will become the impossible dream and Parlor labels will be “Created in Romania – Made somewhere in the world where they respect handicraft”.
Old school items that will always inspire me are…
… the silk slippers and porcelain teacups.
Parlor fashion signature will always be…
… ”classic lines in a modern manner”.
In my opinion, the outfit of tomorrow will consist of…
… one-button jumpsuits, in neon colors.
We need fashion in our lives because…
… it is one of the most direct ways of expressing ourselves as individuals.
What’s going to be next for Parlor?
More expressions of a less restrained creative vision, or, using simple words, will be more about me and less about fashion trends.
If my fashion mood board would be a city, it would be… London.
If my dresses could dance, the music would be… Dmitri Shostakovich.
If I would have infinite powers, I would erase from fashion history… Crocs and heavy steel boned corsets.
If I could meet any designer in the world (no matter from which period) he (she) would be… Paul Poiret.
