Shaped by all things beautiful and feminine, Nicoleta Parascan’s first steps towards entering the captivating world of fashion were taken somewhere around the young age of six, when she received her very own first fashion magazine. Discovering an entirely new universe, filled with pretty ladies and beautiful clothes, there was not much able to ever beat or compete with the fantasy land that was suddenly opening up. Surrounded by books, constantly thinking about the next best outfit, in search of a signature style and defined by a nostalgic calling towards the past, Nicoleta believes in taking chances, in destiny and in building her own path in life. When she’s not writing, you can easily find her playing with her cat, reading an old book, watching movies, exploring the city or blogging her own daily adventures.

In a sea of people, your eyes will always search for her

In a sea of people she walks untroubled, acting as if she knows the path by heart, a faint smile upon her lips and a pair of chunky heels her only companions; in a sea of people, your eyes will always search for her, the beautiful girl draped in dusted colours, the one who isn’t afraid to take a risk, the ’60s archetype: classy, sassy…

A dance at the edge of the world

A guarded space where anything can happen, where the sound of silence mirrors a song of the heart, where worlds overlap and the emptiness morphs into a beautiful and endless extension; a dance at the edge of the world, following the rhythm dictated by solitude, the air brimming with romance, the shimmy fringes conveying the bohemian spirit; layered upon simplicity, the two realities meet in another…

A shoot this dramatic is bound to take your breath away (NSFW)

If your heart is beating a little bit faster now, know it’s alright – that is its way of telling you you’re experiencing something marvelous; and if your mouth fells open in wonder, know it’s a perfectly natural reaction for when you’re faced with a view of such glorious proportions. But if your eyes can’t fully grasp the immense beauty they’re presented with, give them…

Under pressure: fashion meets fine art

They look striking on film – as you can easily sense all the tension building up without it actually affecting their beauty – yet somehow you can’t stop picturing them as living art, with their hair sculpted to perfection, their graphic make-up lined quite flawlessly, their poses made out of an amalgam of constriction and ease, and their garments echoing that far-out kind of wearable…

Structural, boyish, chic: The P fall 2014

Out of this world, she walks lightly upon earth

Beautiful but hiding an unearthly edge, sweet but reveling on danger, heavenly but having her high heels touch the earth instead of clouds, she is spirit and she is flesh, carrying every line of her story in plain sight for others to see and drink in. Effortless and intricate, sexy without revealing too much, her garments mirror her intricacy, as they bear a simplicity that…
