Haute Secrets Los Angeles: Lorena Sarbu Crabel

Haute Secrets Los Angeles

Name: Lorena Sarbu Crabel

The stats: Born in Timisoara, Romania; lived in Los Angeles for 7 years.

Why she loves Los Angeles: I love the weather and the beaches in Los Angeles.

Lorena Sarbu had always dreamt of the life she is living now. Growing up in Romania didn’t leave much opportunity for this fashion visionary, but she never lost sight of her ultimate goal, and made the move to the States to find it. Starting in Chicago, Sarbu attended the International Academy of Design & Technology, where she studied business and design. She later headed to Los Angeles with her husband, where she continued her studies at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising.

After launching her elegant eveningwear collection last year, Sarbu has made a name for herself as a couture eveningwear designer. She now has boutiques in Beverly Hills, Milwaukee and New York City. Her designs can be seen on red carpet A-listers and at luxe retailers, including Bergdorf Goodman.
