American magazine published an article on Crimean Tatar clothing
An article entitled "A sad, rich and hopeful story, hiding behind the Crimean Tatar traditional clothing" appeared in the American fashion magazine Vogue (PHOTOS - Vogue)
Author of the article Liana Satenstein, describing the traditional Crimean Tatar clothes, tried to tell the history of the Crimean Tatars - beginning with the deportation of the people by Stalin and ending with the occupation of Crimea by Putin.
Four Crimean Tatar women pose in thick caftans and embroidered fezzes with turquoise ornaments dangling from their inky black hair.
Among the four women, there is designer Edie Karimova who hails from the town of Yevpatoria and now resides in Kiev. She wears a red jacquard dress, a badem, a reproduction of something that would have been worn by her great-grandmother a century ago
Edie’s sister, Alime, wears her shoulder-length hair in tiny hanging braids, a symbol of an unmarried woman in Crimean Tatar culture.
Elnara Abdullaieva, a dance instructor, dons a velvet dress with gold embroidery and a green fez.
There is also model Evelina Mambetova: She wears an altyn fez, a fez with golden coins and, a kokuslyuk, a bib of gold coins.
“Despite what can be described as another exile, these Crimean Tatar women have tried to stay in good spirits.” The author of the article Liana Satenstein writes.
