SENSE OF A RAINBOW
The SENSE OF A RAINBOW design event celebrated the first “opening” after a long period of isolation due to the pandemic. Because after this contraction, souls want to relax and fly. After grayness and fear, closedness and apathy, new energy unfolds. There is the desire to move, the longing for intense experiences… and all this in a lot of color, bold contrasts, bright tones, sparkling with a joy of living!

The latest collections of our guest designers Rositsa Mršić (Macedonia) and Krenare Rugova (Kosovo), as well as the summer collection of the Bulgarian OFF Limits studio, are presented within special designer weekends.
In the event, Dilyana Cholakova, who graduated in “Fashion” from the National Academy of Arts in 2019, and Ilka Peycheva, designer of the cult brand Vintage Sofia, will make their debut as “new names”.

Guest designers from Germany are the textile design studio TUCHDRUCK JONAS & CLAUSZNITZER, who present limited silk scarves with original prints.
For the first time in the existence of the platform, the designer event contains a digital catalogue of all designer models and accessories created specifically for the theme. It is based on a new and entirely artistic approach for the presentation of the design works photographed by the photographer Petyr Tanovski, where the figure, the face of the model and the background create the feeling of a drawing, graphically processed by the illustrator Melinda Markova.

The photo session is supported by the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in Sofia.
For the possibility of additional presentation of the designers’ works during limited visit times in the form of a digital catalogue, we owe thanks to the “Solidarity in Culture” program of the Sofia City Municipality, which supported its creation and included it in the capital’s calendar of cultural events.
