The new tourism project run by Labin Tourist Board ‘Labin’s Goddess Sentona’ got another visual identity in the original goddess Sentona’s gown. The dress, which is aimed to be worn by animators, guides and Rabac wellness managers, was designed by Eni Surijan, the local high fashion designer. The dress was promoted by a model Nikolina Miletić who took a pose at the National Museum with the archaeological remains dedicated to Sentona. Walking through the streets of Labin old town, Nikolina embodied with her divine appearance the beauty, tenderness and mysticism of the goddess Sentona. Other than costumed and promotional purposes, this elegant beige dress with a green belt and handmade cornel buckle is also created as souvenir clothing. The hood and sleeves are removable so that the airy dress can instantly be transformed into an ideal creation for a summer night out or a romantic dinner.
Labin Tourist Board has chosen the new logo as a part of a new tourist project 'Goddess Sentona - Labin / Rabac divine destination'. It is designed by Ivona Verbanac, a graphic designer and multimedia artist from Labin, who used a local sage leaf as an inspiration in creating Sentona’s logo. The patron of travelers will give presents to the guests, provide them with refreshments and relaxation of the local indigenous products and original souvenirs, interesting tourist trips and new footpaths and walkways, special wellness programs and massages with local essential oils, and ‘Divine menus’ with traditional dishes of this area. This project presents Labin and Rabac as a destination for pleasure, naturalness, health and balance of body and spirit.
