Remaining true to her fashion ethos, Irina Tosheva for her jubilee collection focuses deeply on cultural sustainability, spending half a year in tireless research, nurturing and affirming the cultural identity of the Yuruks in the country. This community has existed since the 14 century and remains faithful to its specific beliefs. Inspired by this socio-cultural phenomenon, using her fashion language, the designer skillfully translated certain elements of their clothing in a fashion context, recognizable for the brand and her work. The whole approach was documented in a fashion video “OYA”.
