I would love to hear from you!  
Feel free to contact me at with any questions.

Here are the answers to some of Bucura's frequently asked questions.......

Bucura utilizes a variety of materials in the creation of the wearable art pieces.  All materials are washed and pre-shrunk prior to being up-styled into a fabulous new look.  I recommend hand-washing your items with a mild detergent and laying them flat to dry to ensure their fashion integrity. 

Bucura wearable art pieces are inspired originals and unique, just like the individuals who enjoy wearing them. The items pictured on the Bucura website are one-of-a-kind pieces, thus you will not see someone else wearing your item!!  However, that also means that if you don't order it when you first fall in love with it that there is a chance that someone else may purchase that one-of-a-kind item.  My fabric inventory is selective and limited, thus I am unable to identically reproduce any item.   I keep it like this to ensure that my customers are provided their own personal piece of wearable art.

I started Bucura in 2010 out of my love of wearing unique clothing and  my passion for art.  The vision for the company originated as a result of too many stress-filled corporate workdays, where finding a moment of enjoyment was limited.  That's when I began to channel my artistic flair in a different a means to relax and save my sanity after those crazy weeks that we have all experienced!!  Sewing machine and serger in hand, I began to create various chic eco-couture fashions.  I was humbled and flattered to receive so many compliments on my wearable art that I knew these unique pieces would bring enjoyment to others.  Thus, I named the company Bucura...which means "Enjoy".
