The hit parade of designer clothing collections presented on the podiums of the Ashgabat Fashion Week ended with the show of outfits from Mähirli Zenan.
Do not be surprised that the video begins with black-and-white shots on a seemingly old, time-worn film, unexpectedly turning into juicy tones and bright colors of today.
Using this technique, the authors wanted to emphasize the antiquity of jewelry and ornaments of the Turkmen national costume, which carried decorative and applied art through time and space.
For seven days on the fashion podiums, the main theme was tradition. And the queen – filigree hand embroidery.
This is one of the most ancient ways of decoration, brought to the highest art by Turkmen craftsmen, which turns any textile into a precious attire.
And since the queen is supposed to have an entourage, shining, matte, flowing, and textured silks and other noble fabrics in tandem with an elegant and concise silhouette played a role here.
Every retinue has favorites. In the collection of the Mähirli Zenan fashion house, they can rightly be called clothing tones that echo the calm and deep saturation of natural gems- carnelian, sapphire, emerald, amethyst, opal, lapis lazuli…
The queen must also have a crown. This magnificent crown of beauty was served by large, multi-tiered jewelry made of silver.
Ashgabat residents and guests of the Turkmen capital saw all this during the events of the 2022 Fashion Week, which was attended by the best fashion stylists and designers of Ashgabat Fashion Houses.
What are the results? This is stated by the Hero of Turkmenistan, responsible Secretary of the National Commission of Turkmenistan for UNESCO Chinar Rustamova.
Delight and undisguised pleasure from we saw were experienced not only by our compatriots, but also by foreign guests.
" I'm from the Embassy of Pakistan," says one of the guests of the fashion marathon. "I've been invited here, and I am glad to be a part of this holiday. It is wonderful to see the art of the national costume of the Turkmen people, to learn how people dressed in the old era and how our contemporaries dress now."
"I was very happy to see the wonderful collection of Turkmen fashion designers," the guest of Turkmenistan continues. "The designers did an amazing job, so the Fashion Week events were wonderful."
"I see a lot of similarities in the culture of the peoples of Turkmenistan and Pakistan: in handmade embroidery, hand-embroidered women's shawls, and even in the outfits that we wear today, in shawls... It's just wonderful to witness this holiday."
