LECTURE ABOUT OLD ARMENIAN TARAZ
On December 6, a lecture on “Old Armenian Costume” was held at YSU Cultural Center.

Within the framework of the “Cultural Education” program, RA Honored Artist Ashot Hambardzumyan was hosted by the Cultural Center.

 

“The costumes are not made by artists. The authors are our grandmothers, our mothers. There was no artist beside them. Today, we can find a piece of costumes in every home. It is inherited and transmitted from generation to generation genetically,” - said Ashot Hambardzumyan.

 

During the meeting Ashot Hambardzumyan spoke about the features of the costume, the types of costumes, the costumes of foreign nations, as well as various decorations that complement the clothes and complete the Armenian costume. He also touched on the history of costumes, according to the regions: presented the costumes of Shatakh, Kharberd, Gavar, New Jugha, Yerevan, Artsakh, Gyumri, Lori and a number of other regions.

 

Ashot Hambardzumyan has repeatedly met with a group of students and tried to reshape clothing that is not in line with fashion demands through fashionable patterns, to give a new breath and make it more relevant.

 

“When we make costumes, when working with craftsman, I am not painting and telling them what to do, but I am explaining what the pattern is and how they can do it, to match their character. Each is an individual, so each one has to do all that. In that case, you are doing more with love,” - said Ashot Hambardzumyan.

 

At the end of the meeting Ashot Hambardzumyan also spoke about the peculiarities of creating costumes.
