Reflection on 25 Years…
By Silvia Serban

Looking back, it’s truly overwhelming to celebrate 25 years of my own journey. I can’t help but feel a rush of emotions: pride, humbleness, and warm gratitude for all the people who have crossed my path, taught me valuable lessons, shared their experiences, and trusted in my work. It’s astonishing to reflect on how far I’ve come.

When I first embarked on this creative adventure, I knew so little about the immense joy and fulfillment it would bring me. Each step along the way has allowed me to grow not just as a person, but as a round artist, fashion designer and entrepreneur. It hasn’t always been an easy path, but the challenges I faced only fueled my determination to succeed on top of shaping the person who I am now, and I know it is an ongoing process…

As I said, a wave of emotions washes over me.
I can’t help but feel a tremendous sense of pride – and I won’t be modest – in all that I have achieved. From creating unique and meaningful designs that have graced runways and have dressed women around the world to receiving recognition and accolades that exceeded my wildest dreams, these moments have left an indelible mark on my heart.

But amidst this pride, there is also a deep sense of humbleness.
I am humbled by the incredible individuals who have influenced and inspired me throughout these 25 years. I’ve had the privilege of learning from the best generation of creators in Romania, of collaborating with fellow creatives in all fields, from photographers to model and makeup artists, from fabric designers to accessories makers, artists and directors, they all pushed me to innovate. I have dedicated collaborators, my teams over the years who brought my visions to life, and, most importantly, countless clients who believed in my craft.
It is through their unwavering support and trust that I found the motivation to push boundaries and constantly evolve.

Each project I undertook was an opportunity for growth, not just for myself, but for those around me as well. As I stand here today, reminiscing on countless memories sewn into every fabric I’ve worked with, I only want to say a warm and hones thank you to all those who have been part of this incredible journey.

How shall I define myself? A pioneer maybe…Pioneering has always been at the core of my passion. In the 90s, it was a big deal to think about upcycling, reusable fashion, and exploring different avenues that merged advertising concepts and creative ideas with fashion styling, photo sessions, and editing. And this is how the Hysteria Boutique was born, in 1999.

Or maybe I can call myself a connector… I have dedicated myself to nurturing Romanian artists, fostering a sense of community and a shared voice. By uniting our mission to build beauty around us, I strive to make people’s lives easier and bring out the best in them. This is how IDELIER was born in 2014. My goal still is to create connections and unify the vibrant energy that flows through our collective creativity. Idelier holds a special place in my heart. It was my soul child, born to create a space for artists of all kinds to collaborate, inspire, share, and express themselves through various projects. For 10 years, Idelier hosted incredible events and nurtured countless ideas and artists in Romania.

Another role I have played is the business builder, forging connections between corporate world and a realm of beauty. I have partnered many years with global brands in need of a “wow” idea, captivating decorations, innovative concepts, or stunning costumes. Venturing into the world of marketing brought a different kind of satisfaction, knowing that I played a part in contributing to the growth of something big. And let’s not forget about all the learning, connections, and personal growth I’ve experienced along the way!

Amongst the various roles I embrace, one that holds a special place in my heart is that of an educator. This is where I truly believe I can make a difference and contribute to society. I strongly feel that we have an obligation to give back, not only to the individuals we encounter but also to those who inspire us.

Ultimately, within me resides and intrinsic and profound personal mission rooted in the realms of beauty, fashion, and design. This is where my authentic self thrives! I aim to empower women with the knowledge that purchasing should go beyond mere consumption. Instead, I want to encourage them to adopt the WAAU mentality – Wearing Attitude Against Usual. By utilizing current trends as a tool for self-expression, women can cultivate a unique style that allows their personalities to radiate and stand out from the crowd.

 

However, as much as I cherish what has been accomplished thus far, my eyes are set on the future with unwavering energy and hope. This milestone serves as a stepping stone towards even greater heights, built upon solid foundations and real values.

These 25 years of activity have been nothing short of remarkable. I continue to be inspired by the beauty of creativity, innovation, and dedication. As I look forward to the next chapter, I am filled with gratitude for the incredible journey that has brought me here.
