ABODI is the only Transylvania heritage contemporary high fashion brand, deeply inspired by the Transylvania-born designer’s, Dora Abodi’s roots and inspirations. ABODI’s signature style is fusing traditional with modern and innovation, contemporary references opposed with magic mythologic narratives from Transylvanian family stories, historical and folklore references and the contemporary local culture.
Transylvania is known for the dramatic scenery of its Carpathian landscape and its rich history, longstanding multiculturalism shaping the local folklore and giving birth to fantastic creatures, magic legends, and a fascinating tradition of storytelling.
The main character of ABODI’s Transylvanian Mythology is the TWIN UNISUS, a mystical and powerful creature, a winged unicorn, a hybrid mythological animal. The unicorn symbolises something that is highly desirable but difficult to see, find and obtain, an extremely wild creature, beyond mere mythical imagination, being able to communicate with transcendental powers. The Pegasus is divine winged horse related to Greek Gods. ABODI’s Twin Unisus is the offspring of a Unicorn and a Pegasus, a super magical creature merging the ultimate beauty and power. Other magic creatures and animals are part of the universe, like the Strawman, the Sun & Moonface, dragons, powerful dears, winged leopards and cheetahs, fun loving piglets, wise bears and tricky foxes…
Each collection is a new chapter in ABODI’s Transylvanian Tales. The citizens of ABODI Universe are neo-romantic time-travellers with an addiction to find the great beauty and always ready for adventure.
