“MUZA Competition”, the competition that combines traditional and modern dedicated to young people in the field of fashion, a project organized by the Union of Albanian Municipalities in the Region, within Tirana as the European Capital of Youth 2022, was concluded last night with the winner of this editions.
The winner of the first place of the “Muse Competition” from all parts of Albania, as the best designer for this edition is Anisa Dudaj.
Mayor Erion Veliaj, who gave the trophy to the winner of the first prize, said that such activities, which unite, best serve our nation at the moment.
“There is no need to go abroad to evaluate ourselves, there is no need for foreigners to come here to evaluate us. Finally we have a super activity, which I hope will continue every year, with a super jury, but above all with talented boys and girls from Albania, Montenegro, Northern Macedonia and Kosovo. I am very proud of you all! Lately we, the politicians, have ruined it a bit, we try to find reasons for cic-mice, for small quarrels for three votes here, for five votes there. When an activity takes place in Tirana, it does not take place in Moscow, it takes place in Tirana. Doku Fest is happening in Prizren, it is not happening in a Russian city, it is happening in another Albanian city. So let’s put aside the wonders we have seen these days, and realize that there are more things that unite us than those that divide us. The hours we are living are the best hours for Albanians,“Said Veliaj.
The competition was dedicated to young people aged 18-35 from all Albanian-speaking cities in the Western Balkans region, in order to promote employment in creative economies, encourage the creation of start-up businesses in this field and business expansion.
The jury composed of several well-known figures in the field of fashion and design such as Fadil Berisha, Aferdita Onuzi, Emina Çunmulaj, Valdrin Sahiti, Enada At’Nikolla and Helidon Haliti selected the best applicants during the three phases of the competition
