AThis was an­nounced at an event ded­i­cated to the cre­ation of the Azer­bai­jan Fash­ion De­sign­ers As­so­ci­a­tion (AFDA), Trend Life re­ported on Oc­to­ber 31.

The founder and ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of AFDA, Ay­sel Huseynova, noted that the main mis­sion of the as­so­ci­a­tion is to make Azer­bai­jan one of the most in­flu­en­tial coun­tries in the field of fash­ion de­sign in the CIS re­gion.

She went ont on to say that in the near fu­ture ed­u­ca­tional pro­grams in the field of fash­ion will be or­ga­nized, fash­ion net­work­ing, an In­ter­net data­base of Azer­bai­jani fash­ion his­tory and de­sign­ers and a fund of na­tional de­sign­ers will be cre­ated.

"AFDA GALA 2019 will be held in late Jan­uary. These are 4 days of the fash­ion show marathon, ex­hi­bi­tions, in­stal­la­tions and mas­ter classes. AFDA GALA 2019 is a unique ex­hi­bi­tion of the achieve­ments of the fash­ion in­dus­try in the Cau­ca­sus. The out­fits and ac­ces­sories of the best de­sign­ers of Azer­bai­jan and abroad will be shown. The cul­mi­na­tion will be the ex­hi­bi­tion of the out­fits of the leg­endary Ital­ian fash­ion house Ver­sace," Ay­sel Huseynova shared her plans for the near fu­ture.

The event will fea­ture more than fifty out­fits of men's and women's cloth­ing since the found­ing of the fash­ion house. An em­ployee of the Ital­ian Em­bassy in Azer­bai­jan, Gu­nay Bor­nak, stressed the im­por­tance of the project and wished suc­cess to AFDA.

"Italy is the per­son­i­fi­ca­tion of the word fash­ion, there­fore, when Ay­sel Huseynova asked for our sup­port, we gladly joined the project. We be­lieve that this event is a very im­por­tant step in the de­vel­op­ment of Ital­ian-Azer­bai­jani re­la­tions, and we, in turn, will sup­port AFDA in its am­bi­tious steps," Gu­nay Bor­nak added.

The event, which was held in the form of dis­cus­sions, was at­tended by the ed­i­tors of glossy mag­a­zines, fash­ion blog­gers and in­flu­ensers in the fash­ion in­dus­try.
