Armenian designers showcase their collections during Milan Fashion Week
Armenian designers have recently showcased their collections during Milan Fashion Week. One of them- promising designer Vahan Khachatryan, presented his “Renaissance” collection.
Inspired by the medieval art of Greater Armenia, it was dedicated to the fantastic ability of the Armenian people to rise, blossom, and create despite any disaster. Tapestries with paintings by the medieval Armenian illuminator Toros Roslin were commissioned in Spain and used for the collection to make dresses, coats, jackets, and bags. Other employed materials are silk satins, printed silk chiffon and satin, silk lurex double-face chiffon, and metal mesh—all to replicate the colors and textures of medieval fashion. Antique stylized jewelry finished the looks, giving the collection a regal and divine mood.
