The town of Stip became the fashion capital of Macedonia. One of the biggest fashion events in Macedonia – "Stip fashion days", took place in a town which is the centre of the sewing industry in the country and was initiated by the town's mayor Ilcho Zahariev. The event is a massive fashion show where the best Macedonian fashion houses present the latest products made for some of the best, world-renowned clothing companies. In 2013 the bulgarian eye-wear brand KWIAT also made its debut on the fashion scene in Macedonia. During the "Stip Fashion Days" event, KWIAT was successfuly promoted by the bulgarian brand's exclusive representative in Macedonia, who make constant efforts in promoting and making KWIAT a favourite brand for many macedonians. The latest models from KWIAT's sunglasses and prescription frames collections we presented during the "Stip Fashion Days" event. Miss Macedonia, Simona Stankovska from Skopie wore KWIAT's bestseller model KS 9381 A and became model of the brand during the event. A number of procurement managers from the fashion business met in Stip to negotiate the production of models for famous brands such as Armani, chic Mexx, Cavalli etc. Serious quantities of high quality garment leaves our west neighbouring country so they can be presented in stores across New York, London, Paris, Milan, which also shows the image that the bulgarian eye-wear brand KWIAT has and the way it is perceived in Macedonia. Besides all featuring big name brands, the fashion show was also focused on local fashion brands and designers.
