Each year we find ways to celebrate International Romany Day (April 8), but this year we were given a unique opportunity. Some of our local partners held a Roma Fashion Show here in Kosice to highlight Romany Day. The event showcased some traditional clothing made by local Roma, local Roma handiwork, a beautiful photo gallery, and even some new designs by local artists. The event was a huge success, and was attended by local officials and the media – drawing attention to this important day.
We were honored to participate, and it was a joy to spend time on this significant day with so many friends!
Below are some photos from the event – some we took ourselves (actually the girls took them), and some borrowed from galleries posted on facebook and elsewhere. Click on an image to see a larger version and read more about it.
