Lali Fazylova is an Uzbek designer, whom Vogue Italia featured in its May 2017 edition.

Her wondrous pieces fuse the beauty of Central Asian designs, traditional silk fabrics, hand embroidery, French and Italian guipure and simple, elegant forms.

Starting with one sewing machine in a small workshop in Tashkent in the mid-1990s, her collections have graced the runways of Fashion Week in Monte Carlo, Japan, Turkey and Kazakhstan.

Her 2018 autumn collection, reflecting the unique aesthetic of Uzbek fashion, was inspired by archival photographs of late 19th century Uzbek fashion,

Look at the images and video clip below, photographed in Tashkent's legendary puppet theatre, and swoon.

Travelling to Tashkent? Visit Lali's atelier in Nukus Street - though make sure you call ahead on +998 93 381-50-59.
