Traditional Serbian Fashion and Music Journey
Cuyahoga Community College West Campus
October 10, 2015

A unique private collection of authentic, hand-made, traditional Serbian apparel, dating back to the 19th century was presented to the Greater Cleveland community for the first time on Saturday, October 10, 2015, at Cuyahoga Community College-Western campus. The Fashion show was accompanied by music from the corresponding time-period.

Two friends, who left their homeland in pursuit of an American dream, reunited through their passion and love for Serbian tradition, art, and heritage. Mrs. Biljana Regan, a passionate folklorist and the owner of this unique and exquisite collection in collaboration with Dr. Nada Martinovic, an adjunct professor of music at Kent State University, and an avid culturist, performer and community leader, coordinated to present this opportunity to learn about this part of Serbian culture.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Serbian Heritage Project (SHP), a collaborative initiative of the Western Reserve Historical Society (WRHS), founded by Dr. Nada Martinovic, with the purpose of establishing a permanent public archive of the Serbian population in Northeast Ohio.

Guests gathered for a social hour with delicious Serbian foods and then heard a welcome message from Branislav Tatalovic, assistant professor at Tri-C and an award-winning film maker.
