Gentian Minga, Editor in Chief of Living Albania magazine, and the fashion designer, Mirela Nurce, collaborated on a special project. Mirela created a whole fashion collection out of the beautiful drawings of the deaf pupils in Tirana. She took these kids’ drawings and printed them in fabrics (wool and silk) and accessories (bags, umbrellas, etc.).

On December 3rd a show was held, celebrities in Albania wore these fashion designs and hand by hand with the deaf pupils introduced these beautiful dresses to a larger public. The image of the project is the supermodel Emina Cunmulaj, who in the past starred for VOGUE, ELLE, and MARIE CLAIRE’s covers and she has been a muse of Jean Paul Gaultier.

Living Albania magazine, Nurce Couture, UNDP Albania, and the Swiss Embassy in Tirana supported this dress design project, held on December 3rd, the International Day for people with disabilities. The motto of this project was: People with disabilities, but with unlimited talents!
