AMALGAMATION OF STYLES (FWSK DAY 2)
Colorful and youthful- these are the words that describe the new spring/ summer collection of Irena Tosheva. Called Enchalon, the ancient word for eel, a kind of fish that lives in the lake Ohrid, and also this is the old name for the town Struga, the collection was inspired by the water as a source of life. Her creations are recognizable by the minimalist, amorphous, wild and kind of girlish style. The title of this collection remind us that water is the source of life, which, like fashion never fades, only changing its shape. The collection includes playful art prints used on dresses and tops, which color palette remind us of water, asymmetric dresses with interesting patterns which reminds of the rocks in the water and timeless white jumpsuit and blue pants which are irreplaceable for summer. What I love the most about the collection is its functionality and youthful cuteness. I could easily imagine myself with all the presented pieces.
The second day of Fashion Weekend Skopje commemorated UNDP's campaign “End violence against women and girls- Now”, for which the two young Macedonian designers Almir Mili and Ivana Cvetkovska designed special edition of t-shirts, inspired by the campaigns slogan. Both designers had interesting performances, Mili with his mini collection called “Tituba” and her models sending the message "I am not an object" and Cvetkovska with her collection “Street style”. Our blog supported this campaign from the very beginning and now we’re giving support by wearing this t-shirts as a reminder for raising our voice to end violence against women and girls.
The same night, Fashion Weekend Skopje was proud host to the designer Flutura Dedinja from Kosovo, who presented her new collection in front of Macedonian fashion public for the second time. Her collection was made of 15 creations based on draping, with which she experimented from different angles and effects with laser cuts of the materials and leather details on almost every piece.
Look at vibe to look your best!
