THE NOMADIC SILK ROAD , CAPE


THE NOMADIC SILK ROAD
Ethnic Cape
Archive work September 2014
PIECE UNIQUE 

I wanted to transform  the traditional Uzbek coat " Chapan " like a head cloak / cape
worn by the women in Central Asia .


This vintage Chapan ( a wedding coat ) is in silk raspberry color , with mechanical embroideries .
I transformed it to be a cape , at present the sleeves are fictional , sewn in the back .

They are ornamented with vintage coins from India/Pakistan/Afghanistan , wool threads , purple paint ,
vintage glass beads , black gros grain ribbon and …..

..... vintage Uzbek Yurt decorations : tassels and panel embroidered.


All the cape is decorated with wool threads purple and green absinthe , 
coins , dome buttons , pendants ……



.....small bells from Afghanistan / India .
The fabric line around the blue trim is painted in purple.
Closure in the front with 2 black gros grain ribbons.



On the front , 4 beautiful vintage Uzbek tassels , with metallic elements .
Lined with Russian cotton printed flowers.

My dummy is size Fr 38 / US 8 ....and i'm more !
Sometimes , with humor , i play to be model in my creations ....to show that a small woman like me

I absolutely don't create for gigantic top models wearing xxs sizes !
