The passion for object design and study was expressed from the first years of college when the young designer started his journey in the structured and rigorous shapes of architectural art. Ever since, each collection bearing the designer’s signature has been a continuous display of sensual shapes, rigorously sculpted in clean lines and sophisticated structures that over time created a unique, unmistakable style.
As a young architect, Mihai Albu's projects were displayed in galleries, along with the works of other famous artists, and it wasn’t long before his hand-crafted avant-garde creations arose the interest of competing companies who soon began negotiations for partnerships. In 1989 he started his first company.
'The shoe architect' as Albu is surnamed by the media, became over the following years one of the leading names in Romanian fashion.
