Yesterday was the fashion show of Meena, the newest line of Trill Zapatero. The fashion is inspired by Afghan costumes. Trill writes „The style of clothes is 'Afghanistan Bohemian'. It is a hybrid of traditional Afghan styles and western styles of clothes. Traditional Afghan styles have a lot of variety due to the many ethnic groups represented in Afghanistan, as well as it’s historic place on the ancient silk road and the influences of the various cultures that have passed through this desert country. Tajik, Uzbek, Kyrgyz, Kuchi nomad, Indian, Turkish and Persian styles are all influencing factors in the style of traditional Afghan clothes.”
After the show Trill rezzed the shop. The prices are more than reasonable and all sales are donated to RAWA, the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan. The shop is part of the Museum, which is worth a visit. Find my blog post and an interview with Trill here.
