Raquette is a contemporary Romanian label, founded in 2012, by a design duo – Dana & Violette, two sisters who decided to follow their mother’s vocation, both inheriting her love for the fashion world.
As described by them, Raquette reflects the clean and effortless chic style, being recognized in minimalist design and versatile products. The label’s signature can be defined by simple and clean cuts, small crafted details like twists and ladder-inserts. Raquette is reinventing essentials each season, focusing on masculine-feminine equation.
Concepto was born from our desire to create something unique that makes you feel extraordinary.
It is a brand that stands for powerful women, based on minimalist lines, unconventional cuts and unique combinations. A brand inspired by women who know what they want in life.
This is an example of an authentic brand that stands for quality and innovation.
Cristina Savulescu is a self-trained Romanian fashion designer. Cristina launched her brand in March 2013, at the age of 23.
Working from the beginning with the finest and most innovative fabrics, the most delicate laces, using couture techniques and handmade embroideries, Cristina’s mission is to create a luxury product by mixing the contemporary with the retro vibe. She has a personal approach to the 50s figure and glamour, and every gown holds in tension the old and the new, sensuality and mystery.
Her main sources of inspiration are women characters, classic beauties who changed perceptions, women who expressed fierce power without losing their femininity. Being a woman, she understands women’s demands, and their need for beauty of the most classic kind. She also understands the practical aspect of a gown: it should flatter a woman’s body and its concept shouldn’t interfere with the main purpose of a dress – the celebration of femininity.
Cristina likes to believe that when a woman puts on one of her gowns, she instantly turns into another character; this is her mission, to make women connect with their alter ego, to slip into another dimension of themselves, their very sensual side.
