The realization of the project “Nitka” started with a workshop under the supervision of designer Irina Tosheva. With dedication and guidance from the Women’s Association “Cvet Krushevo” and Svetlana Dimitrijevikj with the initiative of Macedonian Fashion Association, six participants have learned different knitting techniques and translated them into contemporary designs.
Over the next two weeks they merged their diverse visions and hand-plaited original creations, working individually and in pairs. The domestic and foreign audiences had a chance to see them premiered during the twentieth anniversary edition of Fashion Weekend Skopje.
The final products were presented with a group stage performance, held on November 2nd in the Museum of the City of Skopje. The project “Nitka” received financial support from the Ministry of Economy of Republic of North Macedonia in 2019.
