The second edition of TexTailor Expo 2019 will be held from November 7-9 in Plovdiv, Bulgaria. The Bulgarian Fashion Association has already planned to participate in a number of events in Bulgaria and abroad in order to promote Bulgarian fashion. The start is at TexTailer Expo 2019, where the association will have its own booth.

The TexTailor Expo 2019 this year has an extremely rich program that has already been announced on the exhibition site.

Paulina Tsvetanova, Bulgarian artist, who works as a fashion designer in Berlin, will share her experience during TexTailor Expo 2019. Her presentation “Explore and Collect Serendipity. Sustainability in Fashion ” is part of the accompanying program of the Business Forum. Tsvetanova will speak about how she opened her own shop for contemporary art, design and vintage fashion, and later a gallery in the German capital. She will share, which according to her are the most important principles for success.

There is a great interest in the designer workshop of Ivan Donev “Creaative Lab”. He is haute-couture fashion designer, works in Italy and already has worldwide fame in the fashion circles. The stylist will present a contest for young designers, which will be launched at TexTailor Expo 2019. Workshop participants will see presentations and demonstrations related to the various stages of creating fashion collections – from the selection of fabrics through 3D modeling and production of clothing. The theoretical part of Ivan Donev’s designer workshop is on November 7, and the practical part is the next day.

The presentation of Fashion Trends AW 2020/21 by Assistant Professor Kristina Savova from New Bulgarian University will be on November 9th. Fashion trends will also be revealed during the November 8 fashion shows.

The TexTailor Expo 2019 program also includes business-oriented events.
