March 20th – 26th, 2017
Tengri will debut in Canada, showing for the first time at Vancouver Fashion Week FALL-WINTER 2017 from March 20th to 26th. We will unveil the first collection in the epic Rider story, launching with Rider 1 Journey.
Inspired by the perception of journeys and underpinned by Tengri’s own incredible story – from its roots on the steppes of Mongolia’s remote Khangai region, to the UK – Rider 1 Journey represents the spirit of travel to distant lands, exploring the unknown, notions of apprehension, resilience, energy and the wonders of travel to remote landscapes.
The Autumn/Winter collection is influenced by stories of legends, epic travels, local customs and heritage, bridging two worlds from east to west with subtle references to these incorporated into the design and making of each piece.
The bespoke pieces of the collection will showcase the capabilities of the Khangai yak’s rare fibres, using new fabrics developed by some of the UK’s leading technical textile designers, pushing technical innovation and methods in yarns.
We have chosen Vancouver as it’s the fastest-growing fashion week in the world. Moreover, it’s also the only industry event that actively seeks out and showcases international award-winning designers from over 25 global fashion capitals.
Discover the Tengri Fall/Winter 2017 collection at Vancouver Fashion Week, at the Chinese Cultural Centre, Vancouver.
