From the first edition of RCW – IF PLATFORM’s aim is to promote authentic and innovative design, to outline images of the future in and through fashion. Responsible, consistent, emotional items speak about the current contexts, but are also the results of immersions in the past.
For the 2023 edition of ROMANIAN CREATIVE WEEK, the INNOVATIVE FUTURE PLATFORM section will include both a curatorial selection and a selection of projects from CALL FOR PROJECTS.
You can be part of the IF Platform by applying to Call for Projects!
This initiative opens its doors for creative talent to present their collections on the RCW podium and benefit from media exposure, team professionalism and support from strategic partners – in the form of awards and / or scholarships. All these aspects in the context of the large festival dedicated to the creative industries!
IF PLATFORM CALL FOR PROJECTS is for:

Starting with RCW21, IF Platform aims to support innovative approaches that can help build a responsible future of the Romanian fashion industry.
The section is coordinated by Lucian Broscățean, and the creative consultant is Ioana Ciolacu.
The curatorial selection of the 2021 & 2022 editions included not only fashion designers, but also stage designers, architects, interior designers, etc., to emphasize the complexity of the creative industries.
The collections presented on the RCW podium as well as outfits that were part of the exhibition “RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW” & „Re:Cut” curated by Ovidiu Buta in the Palace of Culture in Iasi, were part of the creative direction drawn for the entire festival.
The participants of the IF Platform section had the chance to apply to several RCW competitions, and the feedback from the press helped them gain wide media exposure – an important step for future business and creative approaches.
RCW and FEPIC (Federation of Employers of Creative Industries) also covered the costs of participation.
The networking within the festival was important for: generating new projects, including the collection items in editorials and, finally for jobs, opportunities, contracts.
A platform of such, dedicated to an innovative future, helps the new generation of creatives.
* Depending on the pandemic situation and the restrictions imposed by the authorities, the rules for participating in the event will be communicated in advance, to ensure (as at the 2021 edition) a safe working environment for the organizing teams and for all those involved.
SUCCESS AND A LOT OF CREATIVE ENERGY!
