On Thursday, September 15, 2011, for the second time in New York, designer Gulnara Karimova will present GULI Spring/Summer 2012 collection inside The Studio venue at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. The collection was inspired by the special co-existence of the old ethnic traditions and modern Uzbek culture.
GULI Spring/Summer 2012 collection will feature thirty looks in natural silk, organic cotton, leather embellishments, rare Uzbek fabrics such as shoi, and intricate ikat prints – all updated with contemporary shapes and cuts. Modern methods like laser cutting are artistically paired with centuries old customs like hand-made gold embroidery. Artisanal accessories, which have previously been only part of the national costume, are re-imagined by GULI to take the form of contemporary style accents. The highlight of the collection will be a one-of-a-kind wedding dress.
Gulnara Karimova of GULI is the only designer of Central Asian origin to ever show a fashion collection at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York.
GULI Spring/Summer 2012 collection show will be held at The Studio -Mercedes Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center on Thursday, September 15th at 12:00PM.
