The 30th anniversary of the Automaritea Miss Alpe Adria International event, hosted by Anja Alavanja Romac and Boris Kosmać was held on Saturday May 19 at Rebuy Stars Cabaret in Zagreb. Twenty-one models representing seven countries in the Adriatic & Alps region of Europe took to the runway wearing Croatian made and designed fashion.
One of the brands on show was Uppermoda, who were showcasing some of their new collection they have been collaborating on with the Hunić Design Sisters who specialize in Narodna Nosnja.
The inspiration behind this particular collection from Uppermoda was the Croatian Summer. The team behind Uppermoda wanted to embrace the feeling that you get when you first set foot in one of many beautiful Croatian coastal towns and experience the Croatian Summer for the first time. It’s fresh, fun, comfortable and flirtatious. From a summery linen dress for the daytime to a chic black etno night dress, Uppermoda have created this collection to represent the sun-soaked days of a Croatian Summer. The dresses from this event will be available shortly on their webstore at www.uppermoda.com
In total, the contestants wore seven styles of dresses showcasing traditional Croatian etno patterns. The favourite style on the night was the white linen dress worn by the eventual winner, Tatjana Genrich from Germany.
Entertainment on the night was provided by Croatian celebrities including Barbara Cvitkovic, Dienne, Sandi Cenov, Minea and Jacque Houdek who performed his hit single, SAM.
After the show, DJ Luca Montecchi entertained the guests until the early hours of the morning.
