The final evening, dedicated to Bulgarian fashion design was organized by Mrs. Jana Yakovleva, chairwoman of the Bulgarian-Italian cultural association Phoenix and Prof. Lubomir Stoykov – chairman of the Academy for fashion.

The collection of Jana Jekova is an original combination between urban chic ans simple elegance. Dresses are masterly hand-made of high-class materials. The dynamic colour palette reproduces the shades of rainbow. It includes candy colours like turquoise blue and cyclamen, the shades of sun and violet and metallic nuances. Dresses are made of Italian silk and lace. Big silk flowers over the shoulders, belts with floral motives and high gloves are a special fashion accent.

The dresses are inspired by the cultural spirit of Nessebar, the unique characteristics of the nature of the Old City and the preserved monuments from different ages, one of which is the windmill – symbol of the city.
