It's already the middle of Spring, but it seems like here in Bucharest we still have to wait a little bit longer to truly have some fun in the sun. Still, even though the it seems like the rainy weather is going to last forever, this does in no way mean you can't put together a creative outfit; on the contrary!
This is the perfect chance to experiment with layering, something that's quite popular right now if you take a look at the people walking the streets of Romania's capital. Ioana, who I photographed this weekend, chose to wear an awesome poncho with a geometric print over her jacket, pairing it with a pair of skinny jeans and some boots.

With dozens of dating apps just one tap away, online dating has become something that's fairly common in this day and age. However, it's more than apparent that digitally getting to know someone can be a far, far way from the real thing. Yes, you can swipe left or right upon viewing someone's photos, you can filter your possible matches by age, distance or pretty much anything one could think of, but what happens when you get to meet that person only to find out that expectation and reality are two completely different things?
Simple Pickup has done a social experiment to find out what exactly does happen in such a situation. The plan was simple enough:
Step 1: Create a Tinder profile for a gorgeous girl and line up five dates;
Step 2: Put the girl in a fat suit and
Step 3: watch what happens on the dates.
Needless to say, the result exposes sad, yet eye opening situations. Check out the video below:

I had the pleasure of attending the event myself, and it's been really enjoyable to see how it has grown bigger and better with each edition. This time, 9 amazing collections walked the runway - from up and coming designers such as Cristina Bizu to names that already resonate within the Romanian Fashion community, like Natalia Vasiliev or Ioana Ciolacu.
There have been quite a few surprises during the event so I really wanted to focus on telling you about what I believe were the highlights of the night:
However, the best collection of the night was in my opinion the one signed by Cristian Samfira. What I really enjoyed was that this particular collection isn't as much about fashion as it is about delivering high quality garments. There's just an incredible amount of thought that went into the design process.

While this brilliant idea is something that's bound to get attention, the calendar isn't available for purchase just yet, but instead was send exclusively to selected business partners. Hmm, that only makes you want it more, doesn't it?
"It all started with the idea to merge the traditional product tea with one of the world’s oldest promotional gifts, the calendar. And it led to the creation of a unique annual calendar - made of real tea. It consists of 365 calendar pages formed from tea, pressed very thinly and delicately flavoured. This sensational new product idea was launched in a joint project with the creative agency Kolle Rebbe, Hamburg, and has won several international design awards since.
The Tea Calendar was produced as a limited special edition. It was laboriously handcrafted and is not for sale. This first edition will be followed by an extensive development period until the Tea Calendar is ready for the market.
In the meantime, we invite you to have a look at all the other innovative products Hälssen & Lyon offers to clients - from our patented tea-to-go system to state-of-the-art flavouring techniques."
