IMAGO - An innovative fashion showcase by award-wining San Francisco-based designer Camelia Skikos





Friday, 17 February 2023
Friday, 17 February 2023 - 6:00pm to 9:00pm

The second edition of Romanian Annual Fashion Showcase opens Friday, February 17, during the New York Fashion Week 2023, bringing front and center award-wining, San Francisco-based designer Camelia Skikos, an innovative creator working at the intersection of avantgarde aesthetics, technology, and political activism.

The show focuses on the influential designer’s stylistic vocabulary as typified by the bold lines and cuts of her latest collections, “Permission to Bloom”, “Language of Goddess”, and “Imago”, which aim to discern, as an overarching goal, how garments can make an impact on our lives based on the unconscious relations between us and the clothes we wear.

The approximately 20 pieces on display will be accompanied by Camelia’s sketches and illustrations, which underscore her complex creative process defined by a conscious effort to maintain a small environmental footprint by working with Bay Area garment manufacturers, by using cruelty-free materials, and by producing in limited quantities. Don’t miss the opportunity for an all-around access to the creative lab of a visionary designer whose ideas and works embody today’s most daring fashion creativity.

The exhibition opens at the Romanian Cultural Institute in New York on February 17, 2023, with a special event running between 6-9 pm.
