In Tango Step it is indeed. Models strutted down the runway at Berlin Fashion week in maxi and midi dresses flowing with swathes of cascading fabric like soft waterfalls. Her collection resembles the dramatic interplay between emotion, elegance, and the swift movement of the tango. The pieces are sexy, and expressive with the edgy influence of cubism in the hem lines and shoulders. The garments even glance back to past times, such as the feminine high waists and full collar belted jackets. The colors are soft and soothing while the clothes are expressive and in motion. Criveanu is a Romanian designer who incorporates multiple forms of expressive art in her designs, a very exciting collection for the season.
