Romanian fashion designer Tina Olari, who shot to fame in Spain after her creations were worn by winner of the 2015 Miss World pageant Mireia Lalaguna, decided to join a project to fight of domestic violence run by well-known Spanish actress and TV presenter Miriam Diaz-Aroca.
The project is sponsored by the Spanish Association of Women Filmmakers and Audiovisual Media Professionals the actress is a founding member of.
Settled several years ago in Barcelona, Tina Olari accepted the proposal to become the official designer of the event that will be organized on June 13 in Madrid and for which she will create one hundred blue, hand-painted scarves for Spanish cinematography and media personalities to wear in sign of support for the fight against domestic violence.
The Bistrita-born fashion designer told Agerpres that she wants to join the cause in her homeland Romania too, because it’s important that women receive the help they need.
“My message for the physically, mentally or emotionally abused woman is: ‘Choose yourself! Life must be lived as you deserve to be: loved, admired, respected and treasured. Don’t be afraid to move away!’ And of course I’ll support the same cause in Romania too,” Tina Olari said.
The designer will also take the opportunity to promote the concept of sustainable, eco-friendly fashion, so that her scarves will be made one hundred percent of natural fibres colored with chemical-free dyes.
