Title: Andromaqi Gjergji no longer among us
Post by: Cees on July 11, 2015, 04:36:09 PM
On the 8th of July 2015, Andromaqi Gjergji died at the age of 87.
She was a specialist in the field of folk dress and wrote many publications in the ethnological magazines like "Kultura Popullore".

Her book about the folk dress of Albania through the centuries is much appreciated by scholars as well as her contributions to volumes "Veshje popullore Shqiptare" vol. 1-3.

A great loss for those interested in Albanian folk dress.

See a description of her book here:
