On December 9, 2023, the Dobredojde Macedonia Welcome Center (DMWC) proudly presented the final phase of its project, the “Platform for Female Family Entrepreneurship,” with a captivating fashion show. This initiative involved the training of 35 girls and women, including those from vulnerable categories. The event is in collaboration with designer Irina Tosheva and receives support from the Slovenian Embassy in Skopje, represented by Ambassador Mr. Gregor Presker, who officially inaugurated the fashion show.

The Skopje workshops, guided by fashion and textile product designer Modno Studio LE-TE, led by Katerina Tosheva and her assistant, Andrijana Pavlovski. In Strumica, MAMA Love Crochet provided mentorship. In Struga, students from SOU “Niko Nestor”-Struga, under the guidance of Professors Slavica Negrieska and Shpresa Kura, alongside Irina Tosheva, honed their skills in manual finishing and knitting, resulting in the creation of beautiful outerwear to be showcased tonight.

The journey concluded with a seminar titled “With Manual Skills to Your Own Business,” facilitated by Irina Tosheva and Sofija Janeva. Special thanks to our inspirational models, distinguished figures from the diplomatic corps and public life in Macedonia, who demonstrated solidarity with our talented designers by offering encouragement and best wishes for their future success.
