OANA ANCUTA BRICIU
My name is Oana Ancuta Briciu, I graduated with BA in Fashion Design from University of Art and Design in Cluj-Napoca, where I also studied 5 years Civil Engineering at Technical University of Cluj-Napoca. Meanwhile I completed a draping course at Central Saint Martins in London and a summer course at IED Barcelona.
After finishing university, I moved to Bucharest, where I studied for 2 years at National University of Arts Costume Design, Scenography, Photography and Art Directing and I also worked as a freelancer for some theatres, artists and singers. All this time I had three exhibitions in one of the most famous galleries from Romania, Galateca.
At the moment I have my own clothing brand, A03 and I work as a stylist for Frame Perfect.
Moreover, after I moved to London, I had a collaboration with ASOS for Tommy Genesis, I was the stylist for FW campaign of BOY LONDON and also for Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club. I was Caroline Perino’s assistant for her final MA collection sponsored by Swarowski.

We all make mistakes OANA ANCUTA, we wish we could take back. Please tell us about a time being a Fashion Stylist , you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
All I want is for everybody to forgive me that I'm late.
OANA ANCUTA ,when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Fashion Stylist, how do you go about prioritizing your clients’ needs?
every project/client is a priority. I take as much as I can handle. I don't do superficial work just to have more projects.
Please tell us OANA ANCUTA, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Fashion Stylist?
OANA ANCUTA, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
maybe i will keep this for myself :))
OANA ANCUTA please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Fashion Stylist. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you just want to share to everyone. What is it and why?
to be honest, sometimes I just love all my work, but sometimes I feel it's not enough.If I start making a top, I will subestimate something and now I am trying to be in a positive mood. Let's say anyways, I was really proud when Asos contacted me for a collaboration with Tommy Genenis, artist that I love. I hope next one will be with Lebron James
OANA ANCUTA, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
all the process before the actual shooting is sometimes painful for me. I have so many ideas, but not a link between them. creating a concept is the most difficult part and sometimes the final result is far from the initial thought and not in a good way. but you know what they say..every piece has a puzzle.
What advice would you give to the people who wants to be successful as a Fashion Stylist?
are you sure?
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?
yes, I would love to work with more artists
