This sleeveless coat from Shkodër (Scutari) on the Albanian-Montenegrin border demonstrates a remarkable degree of craftsmanship in its lavish use of gold cord, variety of curvilinear shapes, and use of negative space. The density of applied work against velvet is meant to replicate a rich and complex compound weave. The motifs show influences drawn from Ottoman design and demonstrate the cross-cultural effects of the region.
Albanian traditional women costume
Traditional festive costumes from Albania. Clothing style: early 20th century. These are recent workshop-made copies, as worn by folk dance groups.
For the reception, Lauren wore a 100-year old Albanian gown that has survived several wars, and has been passed throughout the women of the family. Everyone participated in a traditional circle dance too.
