“Hi! I am Natalia and I am proud to represent Romania at Miss World 2015. Thank you to everyone for your support.”
Natalia hails from Satu Mare, a small city on the North-Western border of Romania. Describing herself as ‘very ambitious’, Natalia is an Ecology graduate with aspirations of a career in TV journalism, and plans on returning to university to achieve her dreams of a career as a journalist. Aside from her studies, Natalia is a passionate traveller, enjoying visiting new places whenever she can. She loves to play sports, and to practice yoga, pilates and aerobics in her free time. Her favourite book is Rhonda Byrne’s The Power, and her travels have given her a taste for Thai cuisine.
“For me, Sato-Mere is the city of my childhood, the city of my family is the most beautiful city in the world, with the most peaceful and kind people.”

Auction Gift - Traditional Romanian Handmade Doll
Hand made doll wearing traditional Romanian clothes.
The structure of Romanian traditional clothing has remained unchanged throughout history and can be traced back to the earliest times. The basic garment for both men and women is a shirt or chemise, which is made from hemp, linen or woollen fabric. This was tied round the waist using a fabric belt, narrow for women and wider for men. The cut of this basic chemise is similar for men and women. In the past those worn by women usually reached to the ankles while men's shirts were shorter and worn over trousers or leggings made from strips of fabric. Women always wear an apron over the chemise. This was initially a single piece of cloth wrapped round the lower part of their bodies and secured by a belt at the waist, as is still seen in the east and south east of Romania. In Transylvania and the south west of Romania this became two separate aprons, one worn at the back and one at the front.
