Reinterpreting the Romanian traditional apparel and bringing it to the present day through a modern vision, Before They Pass Away is the first collection in our clothing line and represents the attempt to create an exquisite attire dominated by architectural shapes and sober elegance.

The extensive documentation about our traditional apparel and techniques represents the base of our inspiration and had an important influence in understanding better the pattern and the motifs of this type of clothing, bringing in the essential details of a folklore-inspired apparel. Going back to traditional apparel represents the desire to remain authentic and to express one’s individuality – this is the message that we wanted to convey in our creations. Back in time, the ladies of the court found their inspiration for the costumes in the cut of the traditional Romanian dress worn by the women from the country, but also in the costumes of the nobles from other countries (for pieces such as the crinoline and the collars).

The collection presents a modern interpretation of key-elements originating in the Romanian tradition. The pieces present the twisted sleeve specific to the Vrancea region, as well as a reinterpretation of the entire apparel in the Oaș area and traditional embroidery and stitching. Another motif of our clothing line that has its roots in the traditional apparel is represented by the bell-shaped sleeve, originating in Negrești, Oaș. The collection is dominated by a narrow chromatic range that accentuates the sobriety of the outfits. The subtle colour accents create points of interest which are used as outlines in the head, neck or shoulder area. Before They Pass Away inspires a sophisticated, yet minimal attitude and its creations can be worn when going out at night or at special events, guaranteeing astonishing outfits.
