The Guardian: Negative press about Romania is unfair, says designer

Romanian Alexandru Adam, who has own fashion label in London, dismisses talk of Romanians swamping the NHS

Alexandru Adam‘s affection for Britain was kindled at the age of 17 when he spent a month at a Cheltenham college after taking first place in a national graphics competition in his native Romania.

"I really liked the education system," says the 32-year-old multi-disciplinary designer. "I liked the way people were looking at things and the way the student wasn’t treated as someone to be looked down on."

A few years later, after attending university in Bucharest, Adam decided to return to the UK to continue his education. Having secured a place at Central Saint Martins in London to study product design, he deferred for a year so that he could earn – and borrow – enough to fund his undergraduate degree. He followed it with an MA in fashion at the Royal College of Art and a stint working for Thierry Mugler in Paris before returning to London, where he now has his own accessories label.
