Between 2011 and 2017 - Lucian was the Creative Director of Irina Schrotter brand. From the design process to the visual identity of the label, he was in charge of the creative paths, working with Irina Schrotter – the founder and with the technical teams. The commercial line was presented at International Fashion Weeks and Fashion Fairs in Paris, Berlin, Milano, London, New York, Vienna and Shanghai.
In the last two years he has signed the costumes for three theater productions directed by Andrei Măjeri: “Master Manole” after Lucian Blaga at the National Theater in Cluj-Napoca, “Las Meninas” by Ernesto Anaya at the Hungarian Theater in Cluj-Napoca and “Good evening, Mr. Wilde!” at the Jewish Theater in Bucharest.
For all his projects Lucian builds the entire visual discourse around three concepts: relevance, consistency and emotion. Hybrids, geometric volumes, rigurous cuts, different textile surfaces are all used in the pursuit of what could be modern, fresh and new, today.
