Fashion and inspiration! Looking back to the fashion traditions of the Balkans in order to create modern fashion designs. These are the main topics of the Fashioration project which celebrated at the beginning of October its second transnational training workshop in Tirana, Albania.
Young fashion designers from 5 different Balkan countries (Greece, Serbia, Albania, Bosnia and Montenegro) came together in the capital of Albania and shared their knowledge and expertise on fashion creation. In workshops, they have created their own fashion items.
The themes that were addressed were among others: Weaving & embroidery Techniques, Textiles and new Technologies in material construction. Sustainable Fashion and Management, Promotion and Sales. the fascinating elements of xhubleta and other handicraft products. The presentations and workshops were accompanied by visits in the National Historic Museum of Tirana and the Artisanal Museum of Folk Tradition
