Tsolo Munkh AW2013 by Quentin Legallo
Tsolmandakh Munkhuu also known as Tsolo Munkh, grew up in Mongolia. She moved to France in 2005 and studied fashion design at the Atelier Chardon Savard. After winning the Public Award of the Hyères International Fashion and Photography Festival, she launched her label Tsolo Munkh, in 2010.
Based in Oulan Bator, Mongolia, Tsolo Munkh presents her collections during Paris fashion weeks. She is heavily influenced by the Mongolian steppes, Buddhist traditional elements and the worlds surrounding her. Tsolo Munkh’s designs often include “recovered” materials and combine embroidery, paintings, pleating and creasing to create ample volumes which contrast with an overall fluidity.
