British Vogue UK magazine has embraced Karabakh collection by Berlin-based designer Leonie Mergen.
The success of the collection was widely covered in the Designer Profile section of the September edition of British Vogue.
The publication features one of the most stunning looks from the Karabakh-Collection.
Leonie Mergen is one of the foremost rising German designers. Having studied at the International University of Art in Berlin and interned at such high-end houses as a Patrick Hellmann in Berlin, her fashion features a rich and inspired mélange of the traditional and the avant-garde, all executed with European finesse.
The designer released her current collection, a series of pieces inspired by the traditional attire of Azerbaijan’s Karabakh region.
The ensembles features patterns reminiscent of the country’s famous tapestries, with signature necklines and sleeved capes making an appearance in both men's and women's clothing.
This edition of British Vogue is particularly important, as this is the final edition to be edited by Alexandra Shulman, the editor for 25 years. With an estimated circulation of 22,000 and one million readers, 85 per cent of British Vogue readers agree that: “Vogue is the Fashion Bible.”
