Bulgarian Ex-Prostitutes to Create Haute Couture in RomeBulgarian Ex-Prostitutes to Create Haute Couture in Rome
Young Bulgarian women who were placed in Italian rehabilitation structures after being forced to prostitute will join the 2007 Spring/Summer Haute Couture in Rome.
The initiative AltaModa, organized by the Alta Roma fashion association, has been opened to 20 such young women, two of them Bulgarians.
A course titled "Per riprendere il filo" ("To pick up the threads"), will open for the women allowing them to see fashion as not only a tool for conveying style and elegance but also a creative and professional opportunity.
From January 27 to January 30 special events and performances will take place to celebrate not only the grandeur of the garment, in all of its aspects and metamorphoses but also the allure of Haute Couture, as the standard bearer of made in Italy fashion throughout the world.
