Join us for a workshop on fashion at the Makers Spaces of the Centre for Narrative Practice. As we explore textiles, fashion, feminism and Venera Mustafa’s and Mariela Gemisheva’s practices.  


More about Mariela Gemisheva:

Mariela Gemisheva is undoubtedly one of the brightest names of Bulgarian fashion design. In fact she is an artist using the language of fashion in contemporary art, a creator of clothes that transform into art. In her fashion shows the models are elevated to the status of walking sculptures. Through them the artist is speaking about the revolt of feminism, and about the fluctuations and the contradictions of the modern femininity; she is engaging with the complex dialogue between the various social and spiritual spaces of the world today.  

Ass. Prof. Mariela Gemisheva, PhD was born in Kazanluk, Bulgaria. She is a fashion designer and artist in the field of performance, installation and object. She teaches a course titled “Fashion Project” in the Department of Fashion at the National Art Academy in Sofia, Bulgaria. Mariela Gemisheva is famous for her numerous alternative and memorable experimental works and designs in the field of fashion and art performance. Occasionally she takes on the role of a model for the camera of Alexander Neshkov in “Self-Portrait” (2008). For her art is: “a practice, communication, a process, and unrest – a kind of dynamism where you measure your daily rhythm” (From “Self-reflection”, a talk with Vladiya Mihaylova about fashion, art and the modern woman published in: “Intelligent Life”, spring 2008).
