Crazy For Cubism
This isn’t the first time I have featured the work of Romina Karamanea. Romina was born in Athens and moved to London in 1995 in order to study Art & Design and Fashion. She is a Central Saint Martins Alumni and worked at leading British designers and brands before launching her line in 2005 at London Fashion Week. She has taught at the Architectural Association School (AA), the Morley College and Central Saint Martins while also receiving a Lifelong Learning Certification for teaching from City & Guilds.
Romina's inspiration for her latest season comes from the work of artist Lyubov Popova - an avant-garde cubist of the early 20th century. The collection comprises of dresses as well as separates with the main fabric being a soft easy care suede. The limited edition collection is all handmade using unique colour blocking of wintery hues and contrast stitching details. Statement patchwork coats and chic asymmetric dresses create an aesthetic that is bold yet ultra-modern.
