International fashion designers have been presenting their new collections in the Transylvanian city of Sibiu, which played host to Romania’s premier fashion event – the ‘Feeric Fashion Days’.

Models took to the catwalk in the most unusual settings across the city including a construction site, the train station and even the airport.

Swedish designer Yvette Hass presented her black-and-white collection in the splendid courtyard of Sibiu’s History Museum.

“I wanted to do a collection based on daytime wear to evening wear and it’s based on my own style, so with a twist of Scandinavian style,” said the Swedish designer.

Romanian designer Bianca Popp’s show was an open air event set in the city centre, and was an all-black affair.

“Black is a colour that works for every occasion. It’s no longer the colour of mourning, it can also be associated with happiness, and that was my starting point. When I’m very happy, for example, I find it easier to dress in black than when I’m sad, I’m more inclined to compensate for my moods with colour,” she explained.

Maltese couturiers Charles & Ron also chose unusual surroundings for their show, with models emerging from wagons in the city’s train station. The duo have established themselves as Malta’s leading fashion house, specialising in evening and bridal wear.
