Students in fashion presented their interpretations of traditional garments of European nations
"The aim of the contest was to motivate the young people to get to know the traditions and culture in the field of garments and design of the people in the European Union. And to recreate them to fit todays conditions of life and fashion trends", shared the organizers. The participants sent their ideas as fashion sketches and the 15 best ideas received help to develop them and present the clothes in the fashion show. It is curious that most ideas were taken from traditional men's costumes and originally transformed in provocative women's garments.
