We almost didn’t make it out of Brasov. After waiting for the bus at the station for an hour, we were told we would have to go to the train station to catch it. We were too late. We looked for trains. Met a Romanian-Norwegian couple who were also trying to get to Sibiu and then we were all offered a ride by a fellow standing around the station. You’re probably cringing at the thought… Wondering who would get into a car with a STRANGER?! Well, the answer is: We would. And we safely arrived in the Sibiu around dinnertime and a late night fashion show. Turns out we arrived to Sibiu right smack in the middle of the FEERIC Fashion Days! According to All Hollow(.com): The fashion shows during the festival are famous for breaking the rules of a conventional runway show by introducing scenography and choosing amazing backgrounds.
While the background was amazing, I was less than impressed with the line being shown. It was a line of evening wear. A lot of black evening wear. A Chinese girl staying at our hostel agreed and we wondered why the designer was a big deal… Nevertheless it was fun to duck out for a fashion show and pretend I wasn’t there in an outfit I’ve been wearing for the past ten months straight. (Good thing it was after dark.)
