OmaMood 2013

OmaMood 2013 was the kick-off event for the Conference on Traditional Knitted Sweaters around the Baltic Sea.  It was a very exciting fashion show of knitwear presented in Viljandi at the Estonian Traditional Music Centre.  The designers were Estonian textile artists and students using Estonian traditions as inspiration to design collections of knitwear.  OmaMood translates as National Fashion.

The knitwear was beautiful and the presentation including the models, their movement, the lighting, and the music made for a very energetic and fun event.  At the conference the next day, many of the pieces from the fashion show were on display and we had a chance to view them "up close and personal."

The following video will give you an idea of the creativity of this group (posted to YouTube by OmaMood):
