Denis Predescu

As they all seem, as they all begin, it could have been an ordinary day. From an early age, however, under the protective wing of Doina Levintza, a friend, a mentor, a guideline, ordinary was not a part of Denis Predescu, who carefully created his daily universe, well concealed within dramatic, architectural, almost surreal lines meant to redesign known beauty. And it all started with an ardent desire to continuously explore the eloigned unknown. That desire never settled. From an almost undefinable, ephemeral, point of constant yearning for absoluteness, instinctually, in the dimmed light of nocturnal inspiration, thoughts crystalize themselves upon an immaculate sheet, frantically sketching what is envisioned as the perfect outfit for an ultimate, but temporary, feminine ideal. Constantly evolving, from selling through retailers at the age of 10 to showcases in Paris, Abu Dhabi or Moscow (just to name a few), he aims, while preferred words scrutinize the void as he pours another glass, towards, at least, grasping that undeniable admiration for theatrical resplendence.

From Poland, with love

And because some of us like diversity I decided to be adventurous since I was a student… My adventure starts in 2005 with lots of hopes and hours spent waiting at UK embassy….ehh; without even knowing at that moment in time how this is going to change the story of my life… How did I get to Poland?

As a country, Poland is very beautiful, endless forests, tall catholic inspired churches everywhere, overwhelming history, wonderful feasts. Poland is my second home country. is the country that helped me start …

Handmade by Evantine

Since I was a little girl I liked to “craft” various things, to make myself or to adapt things that I need, starting with bracelets, necklaces or other home objects. During the winter of 2016 I started making for relatives and friends little handmade boxes, painted or using napkin technique. Since the first products, my friends and colleagues have supported me, encouraged and recommended me (and I thank them for that). By their guidance, I created a Facebook page, “Evantine – Handmade“, to make my projects known to the others. I like creating for people and for my soul, I enjoy their smile when they receive my handmade objects and I like to know that part of me is with them. Over the time I’ve bought brushes, canvases, colors and tools for drawing and calligraphy, building for myself various things while looking at tutorials on the internet in order to learn techniques and find inspiration. Many people ask me how do I combine my hobby with the job that I have, given the fact that …
