Mongol catwalk show report A/W 2015 for NYFW
Mongol debuted this year at Mercedes Benz New York Fashion week to a packed house at Lincoln Center. The show started off with eccentric live music and new world beats as the models began to catwalk.
Designer Bayarmaa Bayarkhuu takes much pride in her native country of Mongolia, and the jet-setting designer has lived and traveled across Europe, Asia and the Americas. Her line is greatly influenced by art, culture, history and fashion, yet she understands the business side of the industry with a degree in finance and business.
Mongol was started in 2005, and has been steadily building a foundation in the fashion world. The brand uses a majority of Mongolian raw materials, as sustainability is major part of Mongolian tradition. Mongolian lambs and goats are never farmed or slaughtered but are raised in the open.
Models strutted the runway in pieces influenced by traditional Mongolian costume with bright colors, green fur, mixed patterns and sequins. Colors were bold and daring, with a hint of a more futuristic vibe. A touch of hot pink gloves and cutout teal pants were paired with cutout shoulders and beaded pearl headdresses. The showstopper was a nude long-sleeved dress with the skirt adorned with sequins and feathers. Top braids leading to double-sleek ponytails completed the look.
