Romanian-born and London-trained, fashion designer Dinu received his Master’s degree in Fashion Design and Technology at London College of Fashion. His graduation collection, presented at the Victoria and Albert Museum, drew media attention with its shapes, textures and styling.

Informed by his work experience in theatre, which spanned over 10 years, Dinu’s practice is an exploration of the human body, its shapes and particularities. He creates designs that play with volumes, organic textures and visceral colours in order to alter our perception of the human body.

Dinu’s biggest celebrity moment came when Lady Gaga wore one of his designs on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. His work has also been showcased in established fashion magazines, such as Vogue, Vision China, Bazaar Asia, Elle and L’Officiel Ukraine.
