Lights went out, silence in the hall – it was the end of the fourth day of the VIII season of “ASPARA FASHION WEEK”, where the final chord of the International Fashion Week 2021 in Taraz sounded. It is high time to sum it up – the images shown on the catwalk were bright and original. Even the pret-a-porter clothes looked like the statement: a complex design, carefully verified silhouettes, an emphasis on details and decorations, thanks to which each model literally catches the eye when the models appeared in the field of vision.
That evening 15 designers showed their new collections off-line with the models and the audience, delighting us and the fans of the fashion world.
The first one to open the VIII season was the brand ZEKEN -MODA from Nursultan, introducing the new trend of denim and knitwear. The new collection is made in oversize style, which has become a noticeable trend in the fashion world. Spacious jackets and coats, perfectly combined with warm knitted suits, pants, dresses or quilted vests. The cropped models with hoods and oversized scarves were particularly well incorporated into the clothing context. All the models were made of denim and knitwear, decorated with unobtrusive prints.
Rather creative looked and collection of the brand LATYHA from Almaty, where you could see the model of lightweight silk dresses, pantsuits and extravagant jackets. A collection of models from ALIYA SAGDI from Nursultan, was full of optimism, hope and sunshine. The designer made an attempt to find a balance between practicality, comfort and sensuality. And she succeeded.
Quilted clothes and accessories have been on the catwalks for several seasons already, but this autumn they come to the peak of popularity. Magnificent collections of quilted models were presented by CHOLPONA and SHAPANSAR from Kyrgyzstan. The semi-fitted and loose silhouettes, the combination of textured fabric and quilted material in one garment, quilted clothes in the ethnic style – literally mesmerized the audience. Quilted may be now not only coats, jackets, vests and bags, in the collection could be seen quilted sweatshirts, pants, skirts, hats and even dresses!
The festive evening was decorated by the collections of five young designers, the winners of the I-st National contest of clothing designers in the Neo-folklore style. In spite of the fact that all of them were students, the collection of each of them sparkled on the podium.
Compared with the young designers, the bright stars shone with their imagination and professionalism of the collection of famous designers: IRINA NABOKO (Taraz), RAUSHAN ANUARBEKOVA (Almaty), TATIANA VOROTNIKOVA (Kyrgyzstan).
The final minutes of the show are the most memorable. In the final show models from brand ASPARA took the podium and added even more elegance, lightness and warmth to the festive atmosphere: simple clear lines, fresh, natural colors and unique decorations in the form of embroidery with ethnic motifs.
Analyzing the VIII season and the last final night of the International Fashion Week “ASPARA FASHION WEEK” it can be noted that the more tense the atmosphere in the society is, the more fanciful and intricate fashion and art become – so it was, so it is and so it seems it will be forever. So in the near future we should not expect designers to somehow calm down and slow down.On this optimistic note we do not say goodbye to you – admirers of grace and beauty in the world of fashion, we say goodbye to you, see you again in the new season of International ASPARA FASHION WEEK.
