Alexandra Popescu-York Returns to Couture Fashion Week with “Unleashed” Collection for CFWNY feb



A household name at Couture Fashion Week New York, highly-acclaimed artist-designer Alexandra Popescu-York returns to the event for the fifth consecutive season, this time with “Unleashed”, a splendidly rich Fall-Winter 2016 collection of garments and accessories, as well as a three-day painting exhibition, all inspired by New York City’s vibrancy. Carrying a glamorous avant-garde look that is as edgy and unique as the emblematic New Yorker, “Unleashed” features one-of-a-kind, intricately detailed pieces of clothing, jewellery and handbags made of select, finely embroidered fabrics. Evidently, “Unleashed” is a collection for the woman whose presence is a statement that captures the eye & soul at first sight and remains the centre of everyone’s attention until the end.
Romanian-born, New York City-based designer and artist Alexandra Popescu-York (also known as Alexandra Suciu in her mother & wife role) has fast emerged on the global stage of visual arts and fashion industry, winning numerous accolades, the most recent one being the inclusion of her paintings in the United Nations’ 70th anniversary international art exhibition. Popescu-York’s humanitarian efforts have not remained unnoticed either, which led to granting her the title of “Ambassador of Good Hearts and Romanian Culture”.
What has made Alexandra Popescu-York’s creations stand out is the exquisitely symbolic depiction, in every piece, of the collection’s carefully selected themes:
“Âme de l’artiste” (February 2015), inspired by the soul of the artist defined by complex, intricate, surrealist visions, where unconventional elements –Art Deco silhouettes, innovative tailoring, sophisticated fabrics– and dissimilar techniques mélange seamlessly, bound in a distinctive flair that carries the brand and signature of the artist-designer;
"Phoenix – The Legend" (September 2015);
“Metropolitan” (September 2014) – a collection inspired by art, history and civilization highlights from the Metropolitan Museum of Art;
“GranD’Or” (February 2014) – a collection based on Popescu-York’s own artistic creations.
During the past couple of years, four of Alexandra Popescu-York’s monumental paintings, including the renowned “New York– Past, Present and Future” tryptic, were designated as background pieces for the shows by CFWNY producer and designer Andres Aquino, a prodigious admirer and supporter of Popescu-York’s creations. “I collect her art,” he says. “I like how she mixes colors with objects in nature creating fascinating 3D format. Her work brings me joy.”
