Fashion Around Europe, Literally – Episode 1

72356610_975153876171374_889420411979169792_n

Fashion around Europe, literally” tour has been going on for a week already and I am here to keep you up to date with the journey.

It all started with the idea of discovering particularities, habits, techniques, fabrics and patterns that can serve to professionals in the fashion industry and to all people willing to travel and discover a different Europe.

It’s also about the people we meet and how we manage to make them #feelfeeric in such short time.

I am writing now from the 3rd city, Prague, and just the idea of having around more than 30 other cities to visit, raises so many different feelings in me.

Conclusions so far?

  1. There is no one on this planet I would rather do this with. Mitichi and Julie, thank you for being part of one of the most exciting things I have ever done.

2. I am so bad at packing! Can’t wait to see if these 2 months will change me. Sorry Julie for always having to repack after me hahah

3. I am giving up on any diet I ever thought I could keep while on the tour. Goodbye sixpacks. Hope to see you again upon my return at home.

4. Loving the idea of traveling by car! And here I would like to thank OMV not only for the support they are offering us, but seriously now, in the name of all vegetarians traveling I thank you for all the options we have at your stations!

Will continue the list… I have another 2 months to do so.

 

Budapest was our first stop and we couldn’t have had a better start.

We had such a warm welcome at Hotel Collect and besides the cozyness level and kindness of the staff, it was exactly what we needed in order to relax after the fashion weeks season followed by the organization of the on-going trip.

Happy it is so close to Romania, it’s a good excuse to come back for a city break when time allows.

We had some lovely meetings with Mod’Art Budapest where we were lucky to see the students working on their projects and so we found out interesting details about the Hungarian fashion industry.

Then we went to discover the stories of Viktoria Varga and Romani Design. Spent an amazing time, met such great people with aso much energy & unbounded talent.

Next on route was Bratislava and even if it was the first time for all 3 of us, we were impressed by its vibe. Arrived late in the night and even if the apartment we had at Roset Boutique Hotel was hard to leave, we wanted to first discover the beauty of the city before a good night sleep. And so we did! As its location was right in the center, we had to! As a traveller it’s hard to find a place that makes you feel like home, but I guess the pictures below are a proof of the fact that it’s possible.

Enough to recharge our batteries for the next days when we met Atelier Luz and Boris Hanecka, then payed a visit to the Virvar curated showroom and Drobne Store. Sounds busy no?

Worry not, Globo Restaurant was there to make sure we are on the right track with energy, smiles, great experiences, good vibes, offering us an exquisite tasting menu with wine pairing that will be hard to forget.

Also, I wish each restaurant would have such a staff. We just didn’t want the dinner to end and the only great thing about the end of it was meeting the Chef in person. I can’t put into words how he managed to combine different flavors and creating a unique taste. Each course was like poetry in a dish.

Thank you Branislav Križan and Baranek Dominik

All experiences were close to make us stay longer in Bratislava and enough to make us wanna come back.

 

But then… Prague was waiting for us.

What a better way to start our visit than… a dinner with a view. Spent some great time together with my #feericteam at Hergetova Cihelna. The spectacular view was accompanied by flavors of nature and what better mix for time well spent?

The very next day we met Naut brand and had a lovely chat with its founders and then off to 100 Class concept store, one of the very first in Prague. It’s interesting to find out so many opinions in each city and I can’t wait for you to see the final version of our documentary.

Then we were off to a place I was really looking forward to come back to. If you remember, I discovered La Veranda during my first visit in Prague, few months ago. Was totally impressed by it so I had to go back with my team to enjoy together food…as art. As you can see in the middle picture we had lots of fun, we were the last ones to leave, and wouldn’t have left at all if they would have remained open. Oh and with this ocasion we got to try their new menu and you should do the same if you find youselves in Prague!

Night walks became a ritual and we didn’t miss one so far.

Casa de Carli was one of the restaurants I came across during my first time here and just found time now to pay it a visit. What a great choice we made! Fine dining in good company!

Chef Matteo De Carli really knew how to surprise us with each course that made us feel like we were in Italy.

Of course, the wine pairing by Jakub Srenk contributed to the Italian feeling of the evening.

There’s nothing I wish more than to continue this adventure the way we started it.
