WORLD BACK THEN - Serbian National dress

The national dress, also called folk costume, expresses the Serbian ethnic identity, culture and history through costume with symbols of great diversity in form and decoration presented in the national dress. They are influenced by a period of time in history and a geographic area. The national costumes that this project is based on are from the nineteenth and beginning of the twentieth century’s. The elements of women’s costumes from the Serbian ethnic region are investigated, such as: patterns, shapes, colors and manufacturing techniques.

Folkloric wealth, that I’ve known since childhood, has been a great inspiration. I want, I wish to give it a new face
