Transilvania Fashion

History

For the last three decades, the Transilvania Fashion Program gave life to a cycle of on-going events, initiated in 1992 by the Mikotronic Group, conceptualized and brought to life as fashion shows, produced by Dr. Matei Miko. The purpose of the concept engaged various developments in supporting and promoting the Textile and Fashion Design and Accessory Creation and Production domains, by creating an exclusive and classy environment. The memorable events created in the show industry have been made possible by the acknowledged use of both golden classical techniques as well as ground-breaking, unconventional techniques of modelling and pageanting.
