Feeric 33 | New Talents Competition


Feeric Fashion Week has since 2008 developed itself in an international fashion hub for designers coming from more than 20 countries and 4 continents

It is based in the city of Sibiu, Transylvania, Romania, and it is covered by international fashion press worldwide. Many designers and guests are impressed by the creativity of transforming the most random places in catwalk-ready settings.

Feeric Fashion Week is supported by The City Hall of Sibiu. The first Feeric Fashion Week was created in Sibiu, in 2008 by Mitichi , art director and fashion photographer. Feeric is the Romanian word for "magic" and the name came from the beauty of the Small Square, a very popular square among the tourists and such a fancy place for locals.



The first event organized, was called "Feeric Fashion Show", because it was only one-night outdoor event in the Small Square of Sibiu and was created to attract attention on local talents in fashion. The project was a success for locals and developed itself into a bigger one. The second edition was bigger but still for one night and the same was the third one. But the new thing Feeric brought was the runway built as a bridge over the road to the Small Square.

Starting with the 4th edition the event was called Feeric Fashion Days because of its 3 days of events: fashion shows, exhibitions, conferences, workshops and the different innovative places it started to outline itself as a very creative fashion project. One year later, in 2012 Feeric became an international one and it was a 6 days event.



The event kept like this until 2016 when the event finally became Feeric Fashion Week with its 9 days of fashion shows at places like airport, railway depot, factories, castles, streets, rivers, bridges, libraries, stone quarries etc. The model and actress Catrinel Marlon was the ambassador of Feeric Fashion Week last year. FEERIC 33 for New Talents in Fashion Design is entering its first year in 2018. Since its founding, the competition will become a reference to awards in the fashion industry worldwide.
