Newcomer to New York Fashion Week, Bayarmaa Bayarkhuu brought us a taste of Mongolia’s rich culture with her brand MONGOL. The opening performance juxtaposing a traditional, instrumental, Mongolian musician side by side with a hip hop artist, set the tone of her collection. Bayarkhuu fuses classic Mongolian garments with urban street style. Many of her pieces involve the transformation of deel, the customary tunic or kaftan symbolizing prosperity and longevity, with modern silhouettes of shoulder cut outs , bell sleeves, and capes, in vivid gem tones.
