Seeing Torgo on the runway is an eye-opener indeed. Torgo is a Mongolian fashion-house established in 2000 with the aim to import and sell high quality pure silk from in China and Thailand, to design traditional and modern clothes, to serve customers with it, to introduce top models, and to promote Mongolian culture and Torgo brand abroad.

I was impressed by the exquisite embroidery that I saw on the runway during the Torgo show. Overall the styling’s a little too prominent on the traditional side for me, but I understand why this direction has been chosen and what it is communicating to the world.  Details wise, I think the colors are beautiful and even though the motifs appeared to be familiar (to traditional Chinese motifs in embroidery patterns), yet the Torgo iteration has its own exotic spin and I find that really beautiful.

The descendants of Genghis Khan. I couldn’t help but notice the models had this distinctive Asian look which was … exotic. (Gee, imagine me as an Asian myself actually using that word to describe my fellow Asians!!?!) But really, they had features that are like a blend of Korean, Chinese and Thai or something. Anyway, what I’m trying to say is, the Mongolian models look very pretty.

If you check out the Torgo website (let it load), this is a multi-disciplinary brand with an in-house photography studio, in-house modeling agency, and they also host fashion conferences or meetings for visiting tourists in the industry. :0 Wow. Clearly Torgo has positioned itself at the forefront of driving the Mongolian fashion scene into an international market. *applaud*

    Wow, this is beautiful indeed! I love the color palette and the embroidery as well. My favorite look is photo #7, it looks straight out of a fashion magazine to me. I’m not sure about what there is to do in Mongolia, or the food. I have heard there is a lot of mutton.. My friend recently went there for 3-4 weeks, and has a travel blog about her adventures.
