Mongolia’s beloved designer, Katya Zol, opened up at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, beginning with breath-taking live performances in song and traditional acrobatic acts.
Models then emerged down the runway with center-parted, slicked-back ponytails, natural makeup, and an intense tribal element, a gold shimmer line cascading down the front of their faces.
Fusing Mongolian influence into contemporary designs and prints, Katya Zol offered a refreshing alternative to fashion. Floral married tweed, plunging nude necklines looked ravishing wrapped in body jewelry, sleeveless espresso pencil dresses sizzled with sparkling embellishments. A call to nature with a canary-yellow floral kaftan mini, nicely paired with a draped ivory cardigan jacket. Greenhouse-effect manifested in a plum-hued floral-patterned pant suit.
Outerwear featured wool, shearling and Mongolian fur, in timeless ivory, rich brown, taupe and monochrome, accompanied by metallic, sheer and sequins dresses in gold, nude and sapphire.
After the show, Mongolian delegates proceeded backstage for a meet & greet with the designer. Celebrity guest Janice Dickinson posed for photos, wearing a Katya Zol exclusive, a sleeveless Heather-gray pencil dress and tan shearling coat.
