The second training course took place in Tirana, Albania, on 02-06 October 2022, with the participation of 26 young fashion designers, youth workers/leaders and young people from Albania, Greece, Bosnia-Hercegovina, Serbia and Montenegro.
The TC aimed to train and open new horizons of creation for young creators throughout the costume and fashion production chain. The course introduced a variety of techniques related to fashion design and production, with a particular focus on those that derive their roots from the tradition and history of the people in the region. These techniques included inspirational techniques, design and construction, weaving, and dyeing.
One of the key themes of the course was the use of traditional techniques and materials to create modern fashion pieces. By combining traditional techniques with contemporary design concepts, the participants were able to produce unique and innovative fashion pieces that reflected their cultural heritage while also showcasing their creative talents. In addition to the technical aspects of fashion design and production, the course also emphasized the importance of sustainability and ethical practices in the fashion industry. Participants learned about the environmental and social impacts of fashion production and were encouraged to adopt sustainable and ethical practices in their own work.
