Bucharest, Romania – In her Fall Winter 2017/18 collection, Romanian designer Herminas Reea is attempting to make the transition from being a couturier who makes specialty pieces for her private clientage to that of being a catwalk queen. In spite of her strong honorable efforts, she has much to learn.
Ready-to-wear is about appealing to the masses. And presenting a collection during a fashion week demands that a collection be cohesive. It must have an introduction, develop into a story and climax with a logical ending. And there must be transition looks between each section. Unfortunately for Herminas Reea, she seems to have created INDIVIDUAL LOOKS to suit the various tastes of particular clients. This has led to her generally failing to observe the aforementionned basic rules for creating a ready-to-wear collection.
This said, one is forced to exam each piece as entirely unrelated to the others. One among them is a splendid look created in tulle. It is a long-sleeved, above the ankles dress that is covered in gold embroideries and appliqués. Worn with a thin gold belt, it is the solo look that deserves applause. All the others seem to have some flaws in their visual designs.
