I ask myself: Is life supposed to be this way? A world run by reckless consumerism, where people only care about maximizing their gains at all costs? Where do culture, environment, human rights or values stand in this equation? Why do we live for ourselves, and not together, why do we ignore the world we live in instead of protecting it? Maybe I am one of…

Romanian singer-songwriter Sergiu Bolota has recently released his new song Every Little Thing. After collaborating on his previous single We Were Young with Eurovision star Stig Rästa, this time he chose to do it all by himself, as he himself composed and wrote the song, while Catalin Ivascu produced it.

War. Terror. Crisis. Fear. Not really the description you’d expect of our world today, but sadly it’s true, these words depict the situation in the world perfectly: states in conflict with each other, attacks on humanity, hunger and health crisis, refugees on the run — a world dominated by fear, instead of confidence and hope, freedom and peace.

The forth evening of Feeric Fashion Week bought four wonderful collections to the audience focus. The evening was opened by the Indonesian designer, Retno Tan, whose collection was almost entirely made of recyclable materials and came as a reaction to the destruction of the ocean environment in Indonesia.

Each year Feeric Fashion Week tries to surprise its guests by choosing the most spectacular venues for the fashion shows. Having this in mind, on the fourth day of the festival the Feeric team organized two events in the Boromir sweets factory. The first designer who benefitted from such an unconventional venue was Bianca Popp. Thus, the yard between the flower mill and the building of the factory became a catwalk for the models. Not only the surrounding was unexpected, but the setting too. With the help of the Land Force Academy of Sibiu, the place…
