Adrian Oianu Spring/Summer 2008

Adrian Oianu is one of the few Romanian designers with a real interest for innovation and for building a well-defined style. His spring/summer 2008 collection, called The Beat, focuses on a sophisticated mix between two wardrobe key pieces, the trench and the dress, using soft, fluid fabrics, lots of pleating, frills and also sporty details.

He studied at the European Institute of Design in Milan and at Parsons & Ottis Art University in Los Angeles and, in the following years, he worked with several noted fashion companies: Richard Tyler, Liz Claiborne and DKNY. In 2001 he makes his presence on the American fashion market with his personal label, Adrian Oianu. In 2006 he opens his workshop and launches his first major collection after his Romanian comeback.
