Sylwia Romaniuk is a woman full of love and passion. Her designs are created for women who share her deep appreciation for beauty and craftsmanship. Based in Warsaw, Poland, Romaniuk’s goal is to provide her clients with one of a kind pieces straight out of fairytale. Her whimsical pieces have been seen in major magazines and on the runway of Paris Fashion Week this year.
Sylwia recently opened a boutique in London and not only did EGL have the ultimate pleasure of being invited to the grand opening, we got to interview the designer herself! Check out our exclusive interview with her!
EGL: What does fashion mean to you? And how has it shaped your passion?
SR: Well, you can think of fashion in many ways. Fashion is the world I live in, it’s space I create and develop myself. It’s a field I dedicate my work for. I wish that one day fashion will be considered like freedom where everyone finds joy and a way to show to the world who they really are.
EGL: What inspired this collection and who inspires you?
SR: I’m inspired by the world all the time, by the people living in it and of course by our emotions. Love is the main factor in it. I love creating when I feel happy and while in love. Every day gives me new inspirations and a desire to create. I’m inspired by women and their lifestyle. I look at the world with love. I consider it beautiful and I try to create in this kind of spirit.
EGL: Why did you choose fashion designing as a career?
SR: I think it’s destiny. I always wanted to contribute to the creation of beautiful things, I know that in the future I will create designs for various things, such as hotel furniture or other things. It’s completely natural for me. I love what I do.
EGL: What’s your favorite part about being a fashion designer?
SR: Definitely creativity. The ability to create and express yourself in many different ways.
EGL: What skills do you believe are necessary for being a successful fashion designer?
SR: You have to be good at what you do. If you are reliable and want to sacrifice something good, sooner or later you will be appreciated. It’s important not to give up believing in your dreams. Determination in reaching your goal. A sense of gratitude…it all makes you go the right way.
EGL: How would you describe your personal style?
SR: My style is definitely feminine. I like romanticism but also self-confidence and a glamorous look. I emphasize feminine beauty and this is my asset. The excellence of the fabrics defines the uniqueness of every collection that I create.
EGL: Where do you see yourself in the next couple of years? What are your visions?
SR: My vision of the future is beautiful. I am a recognized designer all over the world. I develop and create products perfectly. I am a happy woman who is realizing her dreams. This is my future vision.
