Happy Anniversary, Harper's Bazaar Romania!

Four days after it hit the newsstands, I finally got my eager little hands on the new Harper's Bazaar Romania and boy, was it pretty. For this November-December edition, the magazine made sure it put its best cover forward, featuring the ever stylish Diana Dondoe, to celebrate five years of existence. During this time, Harper's successfully went from an exciting new publication that had trouble finding its place on the market to a household name for a more classic, sophisticated reader and I could not be more thrilled about it.

To celebrate the 5 year anniversary, the magazine boasts a beautiful anniversary shooting signed by Alex Galmeanu (a photographer you simply cannot not adore) featuring 15 personalities from all walks of life, from local designers to models, actresses and businesswomen - all strong characters who have helped mold the industry they work in and are an inspiration on a day to day basis. Also inside the pages, I found the most adorable, fabulous, extravagant and classy anniversary wishes illustrations ever, from Christian Louboutin to Alber Elbaz (whom I just adore). I would so frame these and put them on my wall! 

Happy Anniversary, Harper's Bazaar Romania, and hope to see many more editions showcasing the most extravagant and inspiring fashion out there. And talking about inspiring, this moment brought to mind another important anniversary, that of Harper's 15 years in Russia celebrated late last year. In true haute couture style, the magazine enlisted the help of 15 legendary designers, each of whom designed their own version of the cover for the special anniversary edition. Moreover, each designer's issue included custom content on the designer in question, including special photo collages and written articles. Below you can find my favourite ones - magic and style at its best!
