An architectural piece of jewellery needs a cool outfit to go with. A perfect summer look always requires a spectacular pair of earrings. Therefore, there was no better way to put in the spotlight the two fashion brands from Cluj, MONOM & Crina Bulprich.
Everything has started as a play. “Try the shirt. It will look awesome on you”, Andreea Bogdan, the talented photographer from Cluj said to me, when I was visited, during UAD Fashion Gala, The Accolade Gallery, the place for a mini-studio of four talented designers. I tried the white shirt from Crina Bulprich, I paired it with one of Andreea Bogdan summer clutches from Vilegiatura (stay tuned for the story about them, soon). Then I met, finally, Georgiana Ciceo, the designer behind MONOM jewellery brand (I knew her pieces from Molecule-F store) and I couldn’t resist not to take pictures with all of them. And to find out something about their beginnings, their mood boards and plans for the future.

Behind the minimalist jewellery brand MONOM is Georgiana Ciceo, architect. And that shows in every piece, o matter if it is a ring, a necklace or a bracelet.
My journey in the fashion world has started with… a fashion design course I took in school, where we designed and made the clothes which we were supposed to present later in a fashion show. I studied architecture afterwards and then somehow found my way towards MONOM.
If my accessories would be a classic movie, this would be… “Persona” by Ingmar Bergman. It should not be you versus the jewellery, but a blend in which the two of you come together.
My signature piece is… I have a trio – the subtle LINIA necklace, the geometric PLATTITUDE CIRCLED earrings and the SCULPTURAL leaf earrings.
The most extravagant piece I want to design is… maybe some kinetic – sculptural – jewellery…we’ll see. 🙂
“A movie, a trip, a book, an emotion – all of them are in the background and give me ideas when I start a new collection”, says the fashion designer CRINA BULPRICH. She graduated from University of Art and Design in Cluj. In the third year of Fashion Design School, Crina was offered a scholarship in Milano as an intern for Lucio Vanotti.
My journey in the fashion world has started with… UAD Fashion Design Gala.
If my clothes (my accessories) would be a classic movie, this would be…”La strada”.
My signature piece is… the trench.
The most extravagant piece I want to design is… a special long dress, minimal and sophisticated.
