‘Casa Parinteasca’ and ‘Balestra Berlin’ are partnering skilled craftswomen from rural Moldova with a contemporary fashion designer from Berlin by organizing a program of fashion design workshops.The aim is to help integrate traditional stories and methods from an established artisan industry with new European fashion trends. The resulting fashion collection will be a modern interpretation of Moldavian traditions with contemporary fashion design, which will be presented during European Week of Art and Culture in Chisinau and Berlin Fashion Week 2012.
