” To me fashion is one of the most interactive arts and an international language for aesthetical, ethical and personal expression.
It is a weapon when we need to fight, but also an inspiration for a relaxing morning. It is a visit card for our feelings to the world” - Amelia Ursache

IDuring the pandemic, in 2020 was launched AU Fashion & Style -- Online Academy, the Online Course for Image & Style.
Amelia’s interest for the image consultations started when her designer portfolio reached more 25 collections. Meeting face to face the customers diin her showroom, she had the opportunity to get a great and feedback for her creations and to find out which are their really needs and opinions about clothing.
Amelia’s traditional thinking way about the designer’s role changed to a new perspective when customers talked in general abot one and same problem: to find plenty of clothes in the shops, but almost anything which is in harmony with their body shape, individual color of skin and personality.
As a result, the idea of doing a research into the relationship between the retail offer and the customer’s realistical needs was born, was getting life and transformed in an academic research into the theory of colors, the arhitectonic of the body shapes and the clothing styles.
Amelia has done a documented study of analyzing colors and figures on 200 female individuals in her showroom and her goal became to help people to dress with self-awareness, creating their best personal image!
