Designer Esther Noriega presents TEMPO - Spring Summer 2016 Collection, inspired by the Muses of Music

TEMPO is a collection in movement markedly feminine, a collection that confronts adagio with allegro. A slow tempo, sensual, pulsating, a lively tempo, energetic and cheerful. The nuance of the collection pumps up the volume, without fanfare, piano or forte, and hence the woman moves to the beat of a fashion sonata. The melody is executed with defined and resounding fashion trends, merging with a cut that recreates the classicism of couture and results in a defined style that harmonizes femininity and defines the aesthetic dialogue of the designer from Valladolid, Esther Noriega.

Alexandrite
Alexandrite is a rare variety of Chrysoberyl. Alexandrite was discovered near Ekaterinburg in the Ural Mountains in Russia in 1830, and was named after Alexander II. Other sources now include Sri Lanka, Burma, Brazil, Zimbabwe, Madagascar and North America. The important feature of Alexandrite which makes it highly unusual and collectable amongst gemstones is its strong color change when viewed in different lights. Many other stones show a similar property, but nowhere as strongly, and not with such highly contrasting colors.

 Bulgaria Was One of Europe’s Fastest Growing Apparel Producers in 2006
Business news

Bulgaria Was One of Europe’s Fastest Growing Apparel Producers in 2006

Bulgaria was one of Europe’s fastest growing apparel producers in 2006. However, most of the textile and apparel sector is in need of investment. There are a handful of modern manufacturers, many of whom are owned by foreign companies. But the vast majority of companies are small to medium sized enterprises which are already operating at full capacity. These firms face a number of obstacles to growth, most notably a lack of added value and a limited supply of short-term finance. Now that Bulgaria is a member of the EU, the industry faces a number of opportunities for development, spurred by: easier access to the EU, its largest export market; harmonised legislation with the EU; improved opportunities for training and networking; a fixed exchange rate against the euro; reductions in the grey economy, in working practices and in corruption; better availability of short-term finance for capacity expansion and modernisation of technology; improved attractiveness to potential investors; an increase in the number of jobs; and higher labour productivity.
