AKIPRESS.COM - The world-famous American fashion house Ralph Lauren has presented a new spring collection 2022, inspired and created from ikat with Uzbek national patterns, UzA reported.
According to the Embassy of Uzbekistan in the United States, American designers note that hand-crafted unique ikat prints are a distinctive motif of the new season, which are a bold look at spring.
National prints and fabrics (ikat, khan-atlas, adras) have always inspired world-famous couturiers, fashion houses, designers and artists. In 2018, two major textile exhibitions dedicated to the Central Asian ikat were held at the Freer Gallery of Art and the Textile Museum at George Washington University. Then the visitors of the exhibition, especially from the fashion industry, admiring the beauty of ikat, noted that clothes made from this fabric allow you to create modern designs that are both elegant and irresistible.
In general, for many years the use of ikat or prints from it in the clothing and furniture industry has been an element of modern design in the United States. Today in the United States, you can buy an ikat pillow, a phone case, a backpack, and more.
