The 8th edition of Azerbaijan Fashion Week solemnly opened with marvelous fashion show on November 1.

The official slogan of the eighth AFW season - Art meets fashion - reflects the choice of the main site for shows, Trend Life reported.

The organizers of Azerbaijan Fashion Week in collaboration with the Museum Center decided to synthesize fashion in the space of art.

The Museum Center was chosen as the venue for the Fashion Week as there are the works of various artists in different styles and trends. Within the 8th season of Azerbaijan Fashion Week, a special exposition of artworks reflecting fashion and style elements was presented to visitors of the Museum Center. In addition, the Museum Center has prepared a large exhibition of author dolls.

The main visuals of the 8th Azerbaijan Fashion Week are the works of Honored Artist of Azerbaijan, Associate Professor of the State Academy of Arts, Ph.D. in Art History and Honorary Academician of the Imperial Academy of Russia Rashad Mehdiyev.

Before the start of the defile, designers told Trend Life about their collections, as well as about the main fashion trends of the season.

Famous fashion designer Khurshed Sattorov from Tajikistan, representing the SK collection brand at Azerbaijan Fashion Week, brought a collection called "Autumn Evening".

"The collection includes 15 handmade outfits, using suzane and gulduzi embroidery. My collection is an ethno-style in a modern interpretation", said designer.

Notably, it's the first visit of designer to Baku. The designer was very inspired by Azerbaijan's capital.

According to the artist-designer there are interesting designers in Azerbaijan who create great designs.

Designer Medina Zalova, representing the fashion brand Meeamee and participating for the second time at Azerbaijan Fashion Week, noted that her collection includes 28 outfits.

"This collection is designed  for self-confident girls. Since my favorite color is black, I use a lot of dark shades in the collection. I like the emotions and experiences that I have when the models go to the catwalk and demonstrate my outfits," said Zalova.

Nurlan Hasanov, the founder of Ç?km?çi Baku brand said that during the defile he presented six models of shoes for women and eight models for men.

"Last year, we also participated in Azerbaijan Fashion Week, but did not demonstrate the collection in the main show, we presented it at the stand in Showroom. Today we come up with new models of leather shoes. If earlier Ç?km?çi Baku brand created shoes only for men, since July it also began to create models for women," said Nurlan Hasanov.
