About Us



“Fashion is about more than just clothing, it is a state. It is what you are, what you feel and what you want to be.” - Vali Cioban

Since its creation in 1991, Chic by Vali Cioban has released countless collections of ready to wear designs, luxury garments as well as costume designs. The brand's experience with designing for the Opera Garnier's ballet as well as for KS Ildiko Raimondi from the Vienna State Opera and various theatre plays and philarmonic orchestras in Romania shows in the dramatic lines of its collections.

Aside from bespoke orders, ready to wear and elegant showroom collections, the brand has also featured in fashion shows both in Romania (Arad Fashion Days, Timisoara Fashion Week, Feeric Fashion Week, Bucharest Fashion Week), as well as internationally (MQ Vienna Fashion Week, Paris Fashion Week, private fashion shows in New York and Changsha, China).

Head designer and founder Vali Cioban is always looking to find inspiration in the world and people around her, in history and culture, molding it all into a specific CHIC style.
