Design & Style

“Imagine a perfect world, where you stay lying on the grass and watch the strange shapes of the clouds which engrave a dream world: there are flowers, insects, animals, children, kites, rainbows... Now, imagine all these things as colors, then take an imaginary brush and combine everything in a thousand shades. Find the ideal geometric framework, balance the composition, harmonize it with soul and, in the end, you'll have the clothing!” An alina botea collection usually comes into being in such a way!

Nowadays the world of fashion is based mainly on transformation. Nevertheless, Alina Botea’s clothing design takes shape by a constant… the harmony of the soul with the pure line. Actually, it is the beginning of a story… the story of a Character who, in every season, is created and re-created in a constantly reviving romance with the fashion. The Character’s daily gesture of looking in the mirror becomes a delight and an elegance. It would be a commitment assumed until the end of the day.

Thus, the Character is a refined and elegant woman, one with attitude and style. It is rather a woman who is eager to reveal her inner beauty, but, when dressed with the created clothing, she becomes the perfect Character, the self-controlled woman. She meets her fate calmly, with confidence and courage.

Fashion designer Alina Botea loves simplicity in any context, so that each piece of clothing is designed to the smallest detail, so that it could be worn without any unnecessary style tricks.

The clothes created by Alina Botea also have another constant: they actually caress the skin as they are light, fine and pleasant when being worn. They are mostly made from silk and natural materials, a true delight for the one who chooses them.

Design & Stil

“Imagineaza-ti o lume perfecta, in care stai intins pe iarba si privesti formele ciudate ale norilor decupandu-se intr-o lume de vis: acolo sunt flori, insecte, animale, copii, zmee, curcubee... Inchipuieste-ti toate aceste lucruri ca fiind culori, ia o pensula imaginara si combina totul in mii de nuante. Gaseste cadrul geometric ideal, echilibreaza compozitia, armonizeaz-o cu suflet si la final vei avea vestmantul.” Cam asa ia nastere o colectie alina botea.

Intr-o lume in care moda inseamna in primul rand schimbare, designul vestimentar al  Alinei Botea se contureaza printr-o constanta, cea a armoniei sufletului cu linia pura. De aici incolo incepe povestea unui Personaj creat si recreat in fiecare sezon intr-o mereu noua idila cu moda. Pentru Personajul designerului Alina Botea gestul zilnic al privitului in oglinda este o incantare si o eleganta asumata apoi pe intreg parcursul zilei.

Personajul este astfel o femeie rafinata si eleganta prin atitudine, prin stil, o femeie dornica sa-si releve mai degraba frumusetea interioara dar care, imbracata cu vestmantul creat, devine Personajul perfect, femeia stapana pe ea, care priveste lumea in fata cu incredere si curaj. 

Designerul Alina Botea adora simplitatea in orice context, de aceea fiecare piesa vestimentara este gandita in cel mai mic detaliu, astfel incat sa poata fi purtata fara artificii inutile de stil.

Hainele create de Alina Botea mai au inca o constanta, ele mangaie efectiv pielea, fiind usoare, fine si placute purtarii, pentru ca sunt executate preponderent din matase si in general din materiale naturale, un adevarat rasfat pentru cel care le alege.
