Maria Lucia Hohan's girlie glam credo

Maria Lucia Hohan is one of those quiet designers who steer clear of the gossip scene while focusing on developing a strong high-fashion brand. The result is red carpet recognition at the most important film festivals (Cannes, Berlin, BAFTA) and an international marketplace: MLH is present in big cities like New York, Tokyo, Copenhagen, Oslo, Athens or Singapore and online also.

Maria Lucia Hohan fw2009/2010Maria’s remarkable résumé counts in a textile designer diploma from LISSA Paris and a Krizia internship as fashion illustrator in Milan until the age of 23 when she returned to Bucharest and launched her own fashion label.

In only 3 years MLH became a regular presence in local top fashion magazines such as Elle, Cosmopolitan, Glamour and in 2006 it made its way into international market with participations in Paris fashion showrooms.

MLH fall/winter 2009/2010

What is MLH style? With strong Art Deco, Art Nouveau, boudoir style references the result is a girlie-glam look with strong focus on high-quality finishes, luxurious fabrics in unique combinations.

The cocktail dress is the main piece of every MLH collection which is always Maria’s alibi to work with her favorite fabrics, delicate mousseline and silk satin mixed with leather detailing. Other trademarks include the wide leather belt worn over sheer dresses and the bow made from every possible fabric for a playful chic look.

MLH fw09/10 collection

Entitled “La fée paon” (Peacock Maiden) and inspired by Art Nouveau and 1920s-40s fashion patterns MLH fall 2009/winter 2010 collection takes its glamorous girl into a narcissistic journey to become a sensual, unrestrained woman. Art Nouveau references are seen in organic prints, wavy, ethereal shapes and peacock feathers appliqué. Woolen jackets, trousers and overalls have the graceful elegance of 1930s.
