It soon will … in the run down inner city streets of Bucharest there is a new beat – you dance to the bands (Mahala rai banda, Tarif de hanouks)- now they have their own high style designer studio.LaBOMBA studios – a project located between the gaps and ruins of old villas that Ceacescu was due to clear and Bucharest’s flower market, in streets filled with rubbish and pot-holes – have teamed up with Hungarian avant-garde fashion designer Rozalb de Mura to work with local teenagers to create a new collection made from recycled, re-cut, remade discards which they will model themselves.
