The show opened with traditional Mongolian singing and was followed by acrobatics– a nod to designer Zolsetseg’s home country. This special touch set the energy before the first model appeared.
The look: soft and austere. Blocked eyebrows and matte nude lips were offset by a gold stripe from hairline to chin, lending a brightness to the skin. Hair was tightly pulled back into low leather wrapped braided ponytails. The beauty look was a touch nomadic and a clear homage to the designer’s Mongolian heritage.
The show was very tight and had very little bulk. In opposition to the high contrast color stories popular for fall, soft browns and oatmeal hues dominated at Katya Zol. As with any fall collection, outerwear was front and center. Knit sweaters and dresses were supplemented by the occasional use of leather and shearling.
