There are many talents out there when it comes to making artistic fashion, and I was lucky enough to meet some of them at the Tariel Bisharian showroom in Milano some while ago. It was an exciting and interesting evening where I got to talk to some of the emerging designers and also the showroom owner himself. They all gave me an insight into their road to where they are today, and also the story behind their design.



All of the designers were amazing and talented, but there were 3 designers that really caught my eye. They really knew how to play with fashion, and experiment with fabric and silhouette.



The mix of opposite fabrics together creates an artistic fantasy and a beautiful vision. Nea Sandi is an Iranian brand based in Tehran under the creative direction of Negar Sanadizadeh, and represents craftmanship, quality, delicacy, and style. The clothes fit in the modern lifestyle of modern women who are their main consumers. The ready-to-wear woman´s capsule collection “HAFEZ” is inspired by contemporary art, paintings of the famous artist Mahmoud Farshchian, and craftsmanship. Art pieces of Mahmoud Farshchian provided a limitless inspiration for the designer with prints and shapes. Persian music instruments in the artist´s paintings inspired this collection in terms of the use of real leather and leather prints.






A colorful world of Armenian art. What an amazing combination of colors and images! Artuyt create scarves of silk with Armenian contemporary artist´s paintings and collages. One scarf takes a full of 2 months to complete. The new Capsule Collection 2018 was inspired by one of the greatest artists of the 20th-century, Sergei Parajanov and his collages.



Roberta Cenci

A really interesting and creative footwear design. The Roberta Cenci shoes reflect a woman in her image: energetic, stubborn and versatile. A woman can be now equally relaxed in the various moments of the day, without giving up their femininity. This unique design is expressed by the combination of colors, leather and jewelry, which represents the precious and elegant distinctive. The designer herself says that meticulousness and passion is the key for positioning every element, every detail and every stitch.




These designers made art into fashion and fashion into art. Perfect!
