The Art of Zen Parfumerie: Meet The Harmonist

Melrose Place is the new home of the Harmonist, created by Lola Karimova-Tillyaeva.

The new fragrance house The Harmonist Maison de Parfum has a philosophy that stems from the right balance of yin and yang. When it comes to fragrance, “one size fits all doesn’t work,” says Lola Karimova-Tillyaeva, the founder of the brand, who designed the fragrance concept around harmony. “I chose the Chinese feng shui philosophy—the energy—to create the Harmonist.”

Karimov Foundation publishes dictionary of Uzbek idiomatic expressions, set phrases and sayings

The Karimov Foundation has published a dictionary of Uzbek idiomatic expressions, set phrases and sayings. The edition includes a collection of several hundred expressions, and provides a fascinating and engaging background to their origins and meanings, and explores how they found their way into the Uzbek language.

These expressions were collected by the book’s co-authors Shotursin Shomaksudov and Subutoy Dalimov over the course of 15 years, as a result of their countless meetings and discussions with people from all walks of life. The main goal of this edition is to contribute to the preservation of this colourful aspect of the Uzbek language, a real testimony to its richness and eloquence, and an integral part of our people’s cultural heritage. Some of these idioms are on the verge of extinction and we hope that this present edition ensures they are not lost for future generations.

Publishing, with a primary focus on works exploring Uzbekistan’s traditions, arts, literature and the intellectual achievements of the Uzbek people, is one of the priority areas of the Karimov Foundation’s work.

Karimov Foundation launches exhibition, which explores traditional art of Uzbek embroidery

Karimov Foundation launches exhibition, which explores traditional art of Uzbek embroidery

The exhibition – ‘The Birth of Suzani’ – is the latest in a series of projects backed by the Karimov Foundation which aim to highlight Uzbekistan’s unique artistic traditions and introduce them to a wider audience. The idea behind ‘The Birth of Suzani’ project is both simple and unusual: it aims to show viewers the secrets behind the birth – or, more correctly, the rebirth – of one of Uzbekistan’s most amazing national crafts: embroidery. With this current venture, we invite viewers to explore the unusual, innovative design underlying the concept of an exhibition centred around the work of Madina Kasimbaeva, a needlewoman par excellence who has revived the traditional Tashkent school of embroidery. The exhibition traces the fascinating, complex process of creating intricate suzani known poetically in Tashkent as ‘oi-palyak’ (lunar firmament), or yulduz-palyak (starry skies).

This project aims at preserving the classic techniques and rich designs of suzani needlework, and reviving this priceless tradition of our past.

The exhibition is under way in the Tashkent House of Photography (4 Istiqbol Street) from 26 October to 16 November, every day from 1000 to 1700.

This is the third exhibition organized by the Karimov Foundation. In summer 2017, the Foundation organized an 18-day exhibition in Tashkent called “The Thread Uniting the Generations”, which sought to promote the unique art of silk weaving and introduce the work of outstanding master weavers from Margilan in eastern Uzbekistan.

The exhibition “In Search of Paradise Lost…” held by the Karimov Foundation in December 2017 was dedicated to the revival and development of Uzbekistan’s disappearing art of block printing on textiles.

The Karimov Foundation seeks to promote Uzbekistan’s historical and cultural heritage through facilitating concerts, exhibitions and installations. The Foundation supports cultural and educational exchange between top artists and scientists both within the Republic of Uzbekistan and abroad.
