Romani Design at WAMP Vienna
The label takes up Roma traditions and shows courage for colours and patterns: Fashion, jewellery and accessories by Romani Design are very much inspired by traditional Roma clothing. Traditional fabrics and patterns come upon innovative shapes and cuts, the combinations are as daring as well-made. And that’s not all: the Hungarian designer and jeweller Erika Varga not only designs fashion and jewellery, but aims to convey a message with her creations: “My designs are influenced and inspired by traditional Roma clothing and appeal to Roma and non-Roma alike, thus enabling a cultural exchange.”
Romani Design is also a learning centre for disadvantaged young people, for unemployed Roma and non-Roma and is supported within the ERSTE Foundation Roma Partnership.
For the first time, Romani Design will be taking part in the international design market WAMP in Vienna at Museumsquartier on May 16.
The collections are also available online: www.romanidesign.hu.
