Designers from the Republic of Moldova displayed their collections in the legendary Macy's store in Washington D.C.

On April 26 2017, the event entitled "Celebration of Global Fashion" took place in the federal capital of the United States of America, organized by the Cultural Tourism DC in cooperation with the Macy's Department Store in Washington D.C. as the 10th anniversary celebration of Passport DC initiative kicked-off with cultural and contemporary attire exhibition from around the world.

During the event, samples of modern clothing and crafted textile items from representatives of 18 countries were displayed in Macy's windows and selected outposts inside the store. The event was followed by an official reception attended by representatives from across the globe, diplomats, notorious personalities in the fashion world, journalists and bloggers.

The Embassy of the Republic of Moldova to the United States was among the 18 diplomatic missions, selected to present modern and handicraft articles made by Moldovan national designers. The event offered the opportunity to promote Moldovan products, such as garments and accessories. Thus, the works of brand-names Georgette, Julia Allert and Irina Madan were exhibited, in the context of promoting the "Din Inima/From Heart" project, supported by American funds.

"Celebration of Global Fashion" embodies a social initiative of Cultural Tourism DC and Macy's Metro Center in Washington D.C., offering an important platform for establishing, developing and supporting the connection between the American fashion industry community and designers from around the world. Supported efforts in representation and promotion of traditional clothing and modern products of local designers are equally important for economic and cultural diplomacy of the Republic of Moldova.

The Macy's network of over 800 department stores is part of US history and was founded in 1843 by American contractor Rowland Hussey Macy. The income of the network registered was over US $ 25 billion in 2016.
