The beauty of Silvia Floarea Toth

          Many of you don’t know much about Romanian culture, language or traditional clothing.

     In the past years, many highly known designers got inspired from the European folkloric patterns, Romania being included.

     Europe is such a small place if you look at the map of the World, but so many beautiful ethnic clothes are compacted from 50 countries, each country having many beautiful patterns. The East European embroidery has always been admired and that form of art has always been a life style for many of the people still living in the rural area.

     Discovering the beautiful Romanian traditional you discover the beautiful old writing of the ancestors on their clothes and pottery. The continuity of the Cucuteni Culture can be easily seen on patterns on the Romanian blouse.

     On this post I will try to show you a piece of art that belongs to Silvia Floarea Toth, a young woman that is considered an ambassador for Romania, an idol for the traditional clothing from her native area, Nasaud.

     Silvia Floarea Toth is a photographer that started sharing her self portraits wearing her grandmother traditional blouse. This happened while Tom Ford was making a huge splash on the runway with inspired blouses from the Romanian Blouse.

      Silvia is a huge success especially in the eyes of the Romanians that work or live outside Romania for years. She brought a nostalgic and magical image of the authentic Romanian traditional that is usually kept in the museums.

What makes her even more lovable is the fact that she has many traditional costumes and she made albums with the traditional pieces and now the world can see in high quality the work of the old generation, the beautiful generation that made everything with their own hands.

     In my eyes she is the perfect vision of the Romanian Beauty.
