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.

The flattering silhouette can be spotted everywhere from the runways to the streets, meaning that at one point or another you’re most likely going to cave in and try it for yourself, that if you haven’t already. Although in the past, comfort came…

The place where all the magic happens

No matter how much we value natural beauty, there’s some degree of magic still hiding in the daily make-up ritual, perhaps that’s why women can’t resist the act, finding it compelling, delightful, cathartic even. The place where all the magic happens, where all the outside transformations occur, can be anywhere: a corner of a cozy bedroom, a fancy seat at the salon, perhaps a space…

Just as beautiful night sights of big cities slide into the background, the world within an arm’s length away, her glamorous outfits come into view only to disappear again, the mood ceaselessly changing, colours, fabrics, silhouettes endlessly morphing, going from bold to sexy, and from sexy to sleek, in just instants. What never changes is her desire to take back the night dressed in pure…

Code red for beauty on fire

A statement that can hold its own, red is for beauty on fire and for unapologetic power, red is for artfulness and grandeur. There are no actual boundaries to what red can express, no limits to the kind of reality it can majestically outline. When it comes to make-up, red is the only exclamation point one would need, the rest calling to be kept, bare,…

Starwalker seeking colours and light

Where surrealism meets bits of futuristic dreams, where they endlessly melt into a sea of brilliant colours, or dissolve into bright lights, is where she, starwalker, modern-muse, grand illusion, is ruling her corner of the universe, still, quiet, undisturbed. It doesn’t really matter that her entire world is just a figment of imagination, creatively brought to life by Casa Darwin, what matter is that she…
