Gentian Minga, Editor in Chief of Living Albania magazine and the fashion designer, Mirela Nurce, collaborated for a special project. Mirela created a whole collection out of the drawings of the deaf pupils in Tirana. She took these works of art and printed them in fabrics (wool and silk) and accessories (bags, umbrellas etc.).
