Her fashion collections, as well as her canvases, are imaginative and original, unconstrained in both their expressiveness and choice of materials. Elegance in fashion is seen as an act of simplification, renunciation and finally, elimination. When fashion becomes part of a show, as is the case of Ms. Popescu-York’s work, the appeal is cumulative.

Alexandra Popescu-York has been painting since the age of three and studied fashion design and plastic arts at the University of Arts in Bucharest. Now settled in the USA for over ten years, she has an impressive record of both national and international fashion shows and exhibitions. Among her many awards and accolades are her inclusion in the presentation of “Couture Fashion Week’s Best Designers” line-up of September 2016 and the inclusion of her paintings in the Art Exhibition at the 70th Anniversary of the United Nations in New York. What defines Alexandra Popescu-York as a fashion designer is the interplay between plastic arts and fashion. Her dresses are inspired by famous Romanian paintings, but also by the works of great masters and modern artists.
