When the young Roma girls in and around Kecerovce received the clothes and accessories made for them by Romani, they expected something completely different: heavy, long pleated skirts, headscarves, and embroidered blouses. These are the pieces they have identified with Roma women’s clothing.
Trying on overalls, midi dresses, tops and pants, they recognised Roma, Slovak and Hungarian motifs, which are now rarely worn. “We were impressed. The variety and modernity of the cuts, the beautiful and unique patterns fascinated us. We even said how wild! What followed was the posing and work in the photo shooting showed how much these colors and motives add to our beauty., but also how tough it is to be a model” – said one participant.
