Feeric Fashion Week is looking out for new talents in all Eastern Europe’s and not only. That’s why they’ve created the Feeric 33 competition, to support and celebrate the work of graduating designers. Feeric Fashion Week was founded in 2018 by Mitichi, photographer and art director, and is based in Sibiu town, the heart of Transylvania in Romania. The event is covered by a lot of international press and many international designers and guests are impressed by the fact that particular places from Transylvania are transformed in creative catwalks. ‘’Feeric’’ means ‘’fairy’’ in romanian and the name derived from the beautiful Small Square of Sibiu, already famous for tourists. The first event organized, was called ”Feeric Fashion Show”, because it was only one day outdoor event in the Small Square of Sibiu until 2016, when the event became Feeric Fashion Week with its nine days of fashion shows. Particular locations like the airport, ZOO garden, railways depot, lakes, pasta or candies factories, castles, streets, rivers, bridges, libraries or stone quarries become catwalks for more than 40 designers from 20 different countries from all over the world. ‘’As the greatest fashion week in Eastern Europe, with love for innovative fashion, we know the importance of support at early stages and that’s why we created the Feeric 33 competition, to support and encourage graduating designers as they try to build a career in fashion.” said Mitichi, founder and president of Feeric Fashion Week.
