About SomniaRomantica

Sales 1,265
On Etsy since 2011

Somnia Romantica

Somnia Romantica is a fashion line by dutch designer Marjolein Turin.
Gowns and short dresses form the core of the designs. Added to that are pieces that can be combined with it like cardigans, shrugs, lace tops and over skirts. The pieces are often based on authentic historical patterns, adjusted to own design and interpretation.
Inspiration comes from history, nature, myths and dreams.
Materials form an important part of the designs. Especially beautiful laces and trims both new and vintage are sourced from everywhere in The Netherlands and all around the world
The aim of Somnia Romantica is to bring nostalgia and (dark-) romantic dream scapes into modern society.
The name was easily decided. Somnia means 'dream' in Latin. It's also been translated as 'moonlight'. Both reflect the feel of the brand perfectly.
If you have any question, feel free to contact me!

I ship out once a week.

Shipping time are on average:

World other: 2-4 weeks
If you need an items before a specific a certain date, please ask if it's possible.

When the ordered piece doesn't arrive within this time frame, it is probably at your local postal office for pick up.
It's also possible that the package is still at customs. Sometimes they're slow with clearing a package.
Somnia Romantica won't give refunds for packages getting delayed, as this is out of my hands, unless the customer gave a specific time frame and I gave a guarantee that it would arrive in time.
