The moment that everybody was looking forward to was surely the announcement of the dress that the visitors of BTC City voted the winner. In the period from 4th till 19th November all visitors of the shopping center had an opportunity to cast their vote for the best dress out of eight exhibited dresses.
Thus, according to the visitors’ opinion, Droga Kolinska’s Barcaffee dress, designed by Barbara Turk, was voted winner with 182 votes out of 678 valid ballots.

A lucky voter of the best dress was drawn out of all the voters and awarded with a gift set of products of participating companies. The same gift set was awarded to the designer of the winner dress.
Completion of the fourth edition of the exhibition has proven that educational message on the importance of rethinking packaging and its role in the environment was met with positive response among the public and that this idea should be promoted as much as possible. We believe that dresses from Slovenia will keep on sending the message of the project and continue their ecological mission.
