Tsolmondakh MunkhuuGaleries Lafayette, Toulon horaires


Tsolmandakh Munkhuu grew up in Mongolia, in touch with her religious and cultural references. Even though she is now established in Paris, her creative projects remain very much influenced by the world of the steppes. Her collection transposes, within contemporary clothes, particular elements of Buddhist culture. The skeleton and skull motifs found embroidered, cut out, re-transcribed in fabrics that have been skilfully manipulated. These graphics are combined with imposing shapes, the result of a process of pleating, appliqués, and layering. If certain designs take their inspiration from traditional details (like shoulder pads), or from the clothes of monks (notably the ceremonial headdress of a Grand Lama), this designer also takes inspiration from elements of our modern environment, for example the composition of automobile air filters. Draped effects accentuate the theatricality of this collection: an accumulation of energy, of power, and of a mystical force. Amazons arise out of a monochromatic black, bearing an imposing stature and a conquering gait.
Following on from the 2010 edition of the Hyères Festival, Munkhuu extended this collection by adding new pieces to it: brightly coloured masks spring up from sombre plastrons and come alive with the rhythm of each step.

After graduating from the National University of Mongolia with a law degree, Tsolmandakh Munkhuu took up residence in France, in 2005. She attended the Atelier Chardon Savard from which she emerged in 2009 with her diploma, and was also as first in her year group. In 2010, she received the Prix Public at the 25th edition of the International Festival of Fashion and Photography at Hyères, and has since exhibited her collections at the Seoul and Barcelona Fashion Weeks. She founded her own label in September of 2010.
