Ghimbav: Traditional clothing ball


Although Ghimbav town, Brasov county, is currently undergoing a full economic development, the City Hall and the Local Council pay special attention to the preservation of the customs and traditions inherited over time. Among the other manifestations in the beginning of the year, before the Shrove Tuesday, the ?Traditional Clothing Ball? is organized, an ethno-folkloric annual manifestation. The ball is a good opportunity for the presentation of traditional clothing.

Celebrating the traditional clothing

?Among our customs and traditions, the most significant is the Traditional Clothing Ball, which is on its 3rd edition this year. Another important event during the year is the Meeting of Transylvanian Saxons from all over the world, a very emotional meeting for us, and for the Transylvanian Saxons coming back home, at their birthplace lands. Hundreds of traditional costumes are presented at the Traditional Clothing Ball, and the guests are required to wear traditional clothes, everyone having a good time and enjoying traditional gastronomy?, declared Mr. Dorel Toma, the Mayor of Ghimbav town.

The success of the traditional costume

People taking part in the Traditional Clothing Ball organized in Ghimbav said they enjoy the fact that bundita, ia, itarii, laibarul or chimirul (Romanian traditional clothes) are Romanian clothes that are still ?alive? and loved. They gave up their urban clothes for one night to wear the beautiful Romanian clothes. Even politicians and some representatives of several women organizations from Brasov attended the event. Almost 300 traditional costumes were presented by their owners at the ball. The dress code added value to the event.

The outfit expressed in words

Besides the fact that each participant had to wear the traditional outfit, they also had to comply with another requirement, namely to be able to describe the traditional costume they were wearing. The participants had also to prove that they have knowledge about the traditional dance: invartitul horei or jucatul sarbei.
The program also included performances of the folkloric groups from Ghimbav, Zarnesti, Dumbravita and Brasov. Special guest: Cristina Chiriac, the founder of ?Flori de ie?, dedicated to the preservation of traditions and handicrafts.
