The 4th of October is World Animal Day. This day is a tribute to the patron saint of animals, Saint Francis of Assisi, who proclaimed that we should love everything that surrounds us, whether living or not.
The main theme of the Forum Debrecen Autumn Fashion Week is the animals and plants living in the jungle. On World Animal Day, it is announcing a prize game: you have to answer a simple question in Instagram Story! The 24-hours-long game starts on Wednesday. Three lucky winners will receive 2-2 tickets to the Nagyerdei Cultural Park: Debrecen Zoo and Botanical Garden.
The Nagyerdei Cultural Park provided some of the plants of the exhibition. Visitors can view 10 animal inpired collections among live decorations on the -1st floor at the Fórum Debrecen Shopping Center until the 10th of October.
