Title:
Adolescent girls at national celebration in Skopje
Description:
"There were several groups dressed in national costumes. Some of them coming from nearby villages where the costume is still worn every day even by the children." Girls performing an oro, or kolo circle dance; apparently town children, judging by their socks, shoes and hair styles, and by the artificial flowers on their heads. Costumes used for parades and folk dancing.
