When I visited Uzbekistan…
I had a trunk show of autumn/winter 2010-11 which the theme was Turkey and used mainly the local models.
Turkey is pretty close to Uzbekistan so I thought the clothes which were inspired by Turkey will look great on local models.
As a result, it turned out very well! I had 20 different outfits on 20 models in total.
Models I met in Uzbekistan were more glamorous than the models in Paris!
It was a melting pot of Russian girls with blond hair and Asian girls with black hair.
Actually, NHK was covering the Uzbekistan collection (Fashion & Design Week “Style Uz”) and I had an interview by them and also visited Samarkand together.
It will be on air on NHK BS１ soon, so anyone who is interested, please check!
