The eighteenth edition of Fashion Weekend Skopje was held from 1 to 4 November 2018 at the exclusive location of F.A.M.E'S and Skopje Marriott Hotel.
FWS has launched a new initiative in Macedonia, the project #Sustainablestorymk based on sustainable desgn and re-use of waste.
With this new project and international cooperations such as with the United Fashion project, FWS has taken a good step into developing new perspectives for their future generations. For a rather small country of Macedonia, that is currently under political radar because of the name-debate, initiatives like FWS are a positive contribution to the development of new narratives through fashion.

Eight young creative artists under the mentorship of the designer Irina Tosheva, in partnership with British Council, created Macedonian sustainable story #Sustainablestorymk. On this capsule collections made of textile waste the following designers where involved: Emanuela Trajceska, Sara Redzic, Eva Zarezankova, Natalie Naumova, Radica Lazova, Katerina Dimitrovska, Mirjana Josifoska and Dana Kjoseva.

The project is realized by the Fashion Weekend Skopje and the Macedonian Fashion Association in cooperation with the Ministry of Economy of the Republic of Macedonia with the support of the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Macedonia within the framework of the New Cultural Wave 2018, the British Council and our partners Textile Trade Association Textile Cluster -Macedonia in cooperation with the factories Okitex, La Dama, Bella, AFG, Monikaand Istkomerc Sanda.
