Lorena Sarbu Crabel

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 United 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.
