On 20th of March 2017 Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) was holding an event regarding festivities for Nawruz - an international holiday marking the beginning of Spring, beginning of new life. It is the name of the Iranian New Year, also known as the Persian New Year, which is celebrated worldwide by the Iranians and Turkic peoples, along with some other ethno-linguistic groups, as the beginning of the New Year. To my ignorance I did not know anything about this day, and that many former USSR countries do celebrate this day on 21st of March - the vernal equinox.
As I already mentioned AnnaZDesigns was proud to be representing Russia in Fashion show-like performance at this beautiful event. We had presented our dresses from Retro Lady 2015 - Anutka in Pansies and Narcissus, Carla in Red Silk, Maria in Red, Grace in White. We were assisted by girls of Russian Student Association and asked to add a piece of russian national costume from archives of Russian Cultural Center.
