Accomplished Artist and Creative Director Tanya Ashraf, The Founder of UAE-based fashion brand ROXX Fashion and leading Dubai-based digital artist Petra Kaltenbach join hands to create elegant and sophisticated designs at the ‘Couture of Art’, displayed at a live fashion show at Central Park Towers, DIFC – Dubai, on 8th February 2020.
The designs combine vibrant colors and intricate details with elegant themes representing “cupid, devotion, and the constant game of passion and love represented by arrows and pistols with hints of quirky elements on full flowing fabrics,” to quote the creators. The core themes of the designs are ‘Pomegranate’ and ‘Love’. Tanya has used elements from Petra’s designs, such as pomegranates, cupid, and love arrows, combining them with her own touch to create high-end fashion pieces, printed on 100 percent smooth silk. The final products reflect the brilliance of the two intercultural minds.
