– The collection is amazing. The ethnic is felt in everything, and at the same time, it is very modern and very feminine. In this, we are similar to Turkmen designers: for us, a woman is important, and clothing acts as a frame, as a frame for her inner world. It seems to me that this collection of Ashgabat Model House can be shown in the world fashion cities, and it will have a resounding success. Paris would have gasped! After all, all the outfits are very modern and premium quality. An embroidery deserves special attention. Looking at the outfits of the Ashgabat Model House, I also wanted to decorate my collection with embroidery, beads, and ribbons. You inspired me!

– We have two brands now: ALEXANDER TEREKHOV and the more democratic Terekhov Girl. In addition, we have a shoe line and a small line of bags. We prefer to use eco-fabrics. For example, in this collection we have trench coats made of eco-leather and eco-suede of stunning quality. We would like to study your production with pleasure, as it would be very interesting for us to adapt your cotton, your jeans to our brand. I think we can have a wonderful partnership with Turkmenistan!
