Fashion brand CHOPOVA LOWENA presented its Spring Summer 2023 Rose Is A Rose Is A Rose Collection, that fuses heritage and modernity, on Friday, September 16th, during the ongoing London Fashion Week. The collection was inspired by Bulgarian traditional festival – Each year, in the village of Kazanlak, young women dress up to select their Rose Queen. Designers Emma Chopova and Laura Lowena-Irons reimagined Bulgaria’s loveliest festival, embracing the strangeness of pageantry and the tenderness of a national tradition. The brand’s first runway show was dedicated to Emma Chopova’s grandmothers Emilia Minkova Ioveva and Antoaneta Kostova Shopova.

SPRING SUMMER 2023 COLLECTIONS

When you see a rose, you smell a rose, and the ideas we use in the collection give the same kind of signal. – Emma Chopova

Dresses are ribboned at the waist with petaled string: togeth- erness. Handmade macramé necklaces and bags are knotted around healing crystals: protection. Lacrosse pennies are made in logo tinsel: camara- derie. Traditional Bularian textiles are brought back into the collection as skirts and vests, buttoned up over silken shirts and neckties: heritage, belonging to the thread of time. Doodle-printed swimsuits and tough girl, chain-braided jeans: playfulness, silli- ness, mischief. Black aprons unbuckle from coral plaid skirts: transformation. A white deadstock lace dress is for your wedding: the most sacred love.” – form Chopova Lowena
