Already at the first steps on this exhibition, Italian designers - foreign participants of the Week did not hide their surprise and admiration.
"I received inspiration here, especially when I saw Uzbek fabrics, which is absolutely new for me," Giulio Boldetti said in an interview.
- I think that in my next collection "Autumn-Winter 2018" will definitely find a response that I saw here the fabrics, murals, the colors of Uzbekistan.
A lot of emotions are felt on the eve of the whole week of acquaintance with the designer collections of Uzbek masters and one of the founders of the Turin Fashion Week Marina Nekhaeva.
- The exhibition was very pleased, very interesting. But we are still in the phase of its comprehension, but already remember the hand-painted, silk, very beautiful models, all this is very beautiful. The beginning is very fascinating.
Having Russian roots, Marina admitted that she feels a lot for herself in her hospitable Tashkent. Perhaps all this will result in a close cooperation of the two Fashion Weeks - Tashkent and Turin. According to Marina, one of their directions is to find and nurture new talents in the fashion world. During the years of the Turin Fashion Week, there have been successful projects in this direction with the regions of Italy itself, as well as other countries, in particular the UAE. Now it's very interesting to see what Tashkent will show.
Looking ahead, we will say that the program of the Tashkent Fashion Week, which lasts until November 19, included a whole day dedicated to Italian designers - this is November 17, when their collections will be presented by the well-known Antonio Grimaldi, as well as five more designers and a master class from Fulvio Luparia.
In addition, an exhibition entitled "60 years of Italian Fashion", dedicated to the history of one of the most famous schools in the fashion world, will be presented tonight. To create it, curators from Italy with the support of the Embassy of this country in Uzbekistan specially came.
At the press conference of the first day, the chairman of the Association of Designers of Uzbekistan "Osiyo Ramzi" Halida Kamilova, who is traditionally the organizer of the Tashkent Fashion Week, noted that the program is very rich.
The second day of the Week, November 15 will bring familiarity with the design of the young. Two youth shows will be presented at once, taking into account that there were more than 300 applications for participation. As a result of the strictest competitive selection, about 60 participants were selected.
November 16 is an opportunity to see brand designers of Uzbekistan and their collections. Nikolay Nam, Elena Milberger, Dina Sayfi, Dilnoz Erkinova, Nilufar Abduvalieva will present their author's works.
November 17, as already noted, in the Palace of Youth Creativity will be the day of Italian fashion.
In addition to the Italians, the Week will present collections of masters of France, Korea, Kyrgyzstan, which will be available on November 18th.
Finish the week of November 19, one of the most traditional exhibitions-shows - the festival "National Dress".
All Week will be held master classes from domestic and foreign fashion designers for professionals and designer youth.
As noted Halida Kamilova, the popularity of the Tashkent Week is growing every year, there are joint projects with designers of France, such ideas are discussed with the Italians. All this suggests that the fashion week can be held twice - according to the traditional two main season of fashion.
Undoubtedly, this will gradually allow us to see more and more modern models of clothing from traditional Uzbek fabrics, new finds and growing popularity of domestic brands in the domestic and foreign markets.
