Today the museum “Vordan Karmir” was helding one of the biggest fashion events of the year-the official opening of Fashion Forum Yerevan 2019, during which Armenian designers represented their collections of Armenian accessories and national dresses.

It’s already the second year that Armenia holds Fashion Forum Yerevan. This year the forum is scheduled for June 25-29 by the efforts of Fashion and Design Chamber of Armenia, EU for Business program by EU and State Tourism Committee of Armenia.

The forum is aiming to develop the prosperity of fashion in Armenia.

The official opening ceremony of the forum was also honored with the visit of Armenian Prime Minster Nikol Pashinyan’s wife-first lady Anna Hakobyan.

“Anna Hakobyan was always next to the Armenian designers supporting them by wearing their clothes during indoor and outdoor meetings and we are very thankful to her for that”,Vahan Khachatryan, the head of Fashion and Design Chamber of Armenia, mentioned in his speech. He also expressed his gratitude towards all the supporters of the forum, including the chair of State Tourism Committee of Armenia, Susanna Safaryan.

“This is a very interesting format for us as well. We have never looked on the fashion as a subject of tourism. This is the first step, which I think is a successful one. I hope from now on the guests will have a lot of opportunities to explore Armenia. We aimed to concentrate the world’s attention on Armenia. The state is always ready to support the best projects, so I hope for another collaboration in the near future”, said Susanna.

The importance of the forum was also highlighted by the head of the EU for Business program, Eva Neher.
