Unstoppable project

One of the biggest supporters of my work and Esnaf is Mrs. Biliana Angelova, wife of the Bulgarian ambassador Mr. Angel Angelov. She is involved in many initiatives aimed at raising awareness and supporting people from vulnerable groups. Biliana and her husband are one of the most regular customers of Esnaf. For every occasion in the embassy, ​​for themselves, they regularly come and buy from Esnaf. That kind of support is what keeps Esnaf alive.
This time we received financial support from the Embassy of Bulgaria and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Bulgaria for the Unstoppable project. Top designers will design products that will be made by people from vulnerable groups.
Together with Rosica-Mrsik, Neli Mitewa Ivan Asen, Dinka Yakimova-kasabova and @DilianaIvanova we will create wonderful products and collections.
The first phase of the project was realised on April 28 and 29.
On April 28, we had a training with Neli Miteva – who is a top lecturer with vast experience and a large portfolio, founder of the Ivan Asen 22 platform that unites designers from all over Bulgaria. The knowledge that Nellie passed on to us is of great importance for the development of future collections: Creating a collection concept – creating a mood board, choosing themes, selecting colours, where to draw inspiration from. We also had a practical part where all participants created and presented their concepts for collections.
On the second day we had workshops for screen printing and beads:
Dinka Kasabova taught us the skills of printing on textiles with various prints and various textures. We have printed many t-shirts and bags, we are ready for new products!
Diliana Ivanova revealed to us a new approach to bead work – we have upgraded our skills and are ready to weave something new and modern
Many thanks to the Embassy of Bulgaria for the support for the realisation of the Unstoppable project!
The first phase is over, now we are preparing a collection with Rosica Mršić, stay tuned!
