A new wave of striking changes and events has recently overflowed Armenia. One of the events – Fashion Forum Yerevan 2018 – is the first international fashion meeting to ever take place in Armenia. The opening ceremony was held on June 2 in the Aram Khachaturian House-Museum with many international influencers and local celebrities attending. The Minister of Culture of RA, Lilit Makunts, also attended the opening ceremony.
The aesthetic part of the forum was the exhibition of artworks from about 50 fashion designers from Armenia and 11 from the diasporas in Germany, France, Lebanon, Syria, Ukraine, Russia, and the US. All the collections are the vivid reflection of their works expressing fashion through the diversity of styles – from ethnic to casual and from evening to architectural.
The styling process was curated by fashion designer Vahan Khachatryan and myself, Lucine Ayanian. In addition, the exhibition showed several works from TUMO students, thus making room for the young ones to share their talent and aptitude.
