Amaras is a Collection designed and constructed by Ariana Nazarian. The motifs that appear throughout my collection are callbacks to these influences: hand-done crochet patterns and traditional wood carvings are executed in color combinations commonly found in an Armenian daraz, or costume. Amaras evolved through the layering of seemingly opposing techniques: delicate hand beading and crochet work passed down to me from my grandmothers combined with bold stenciling. The result is an eveningwear group that embodies strength, tradition and perseverance.
