We graduated the National University of Arts in Bucharest with a degree in Fashion Strategies and Costumes. Naturally, we used everything we learned to guide us in preserving the symbols and values of traditional Romanian costumes, but also to break some rules.
When our first collection was launched in 2014, using folklore to create new forms of art began to grow as a trend in music, fashion, achitecture. So we joined and helped raise this wave. Before They Pass Away was our first outspoken way of letting the world know our cultural roots are worth mentioning in haute couture magazines, on international runways and also in your day to day style routine.OUR PRODUCTS
