Mongolian Designer Bayarmaa Bayackhuu showcased a mix of her old world roots and modern wearable evening and ready to wear at the debut of her Fall 2015 fashion collection at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York. A student of the world and having spent time throughout the U.S., Asia and Europe, her global lifestyle is reflected in her latest collection, a journey of art, history and a tribute to her heritage.
A musical performance dramatically opened the show with traditional Mongolian instrumental, with rapping and hip hop inspired beats setting the stage for more cultural fashion experience.
The collection was inspired by traditional Mongolian costume influences and embroidery mixed with luxurious but wearable fabrics including Mongolian lamb fur. The cashmere is a special material from Mongolia used to create glossy hues with enhanced sparkle. The empress like quality of the evening wear presented bold turquoise, amethyst, sapphire and emerald hues, accentuating the essence of raw gems from Mongolia as well as her technical background in bridal and outerwear. Cut out shoulders, sleeving and head pieces were also a throwback to 80s glamour with an air of regality. The collection deemed equally wearable yet fit for a queen, a celebration of lifestyle and cultural journey for newcomer Mongol.
