While many would think of Paris and Milan when it comes to shopping, Bucharest is certainly not lacking in options for shopping enthusiasts either. The capital city of Romania is a good choice and a fashion designer's hub, so it is worth booking a trip here, just to have some fun around shops. You might be surprised with the findings!
For luxury shopping, here are some recommendations:
International celebrities such as Beyonce, Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus, and Katy Perry have worn outfits designed and created in Bucharest by Andreea Badala, the talent behind Murmur. The concept behind the brand focuses on helping women get more in touch with their femininity and sensuality, and the clothes are indeed a feast for the eyes!
