Sabina Zulalova's project was presented at the National Carpet Museum

Sabina Zulalova's project called "Upcycle Twenty" was presented at the Azerbaijan National Carpet Museum. Within the framework of this event, the 20th anniversary of "Swan-Maiden" Fashion House was also celebrated, and a display of a fashion collection was held, which included design elements highlighting the themes of ecology, as well as supporting people with physical disabilities.

The project is especially dedicated to how to use waste materials. Designer Sabina Zulalova breathed new life into some of clothes from her previous collections, enriched them with gurama elements, and became an example to other designers. Using leftover pieces of fabric to create new collections reduces environmental risks, as factories pollute the atmosphere and landfills are filled with waste, which inevitably affects climate change. The video shown in the presentation is also dedicated to this topic. The representative of the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources of Azerbaijan Khanim Jannatova also spoke at the event. Since Sabina Zulalova is also the founder of the non-governmental organization "Environmental Support to Smart Society", supporting environmental protection measures is one of the main directions of her project.

People with physical disabilities were also invited to participate in the project. Their handicrafts were presented at the fair organized during the event. For these people, a two-month course on studying the ancient art of gurama was held with the support of the Vocational Rehabilitation Center of the Social Services Agency under the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of the Population. The lessons took place on the territory of Gala State History-Ethnography Reserve, which is part of the Icherisheher Museum Center. The sponsors of the project presented gifts to the authors whose works were displayed on the podium.

As part of the celebration of the 20th anniversary of "Swan-Maiden" Fashion House, fashion designer Saima Madatova presented a "Vintage" collection of various clothing samples created over the past twenty years. The culmination of the fashion evening was the appearance of the fashion designer's daughter on the catwalk. She is the muse of the brand created by her mother, and the fashion designer presented her first collection to the audience in 2023, when she was expecting her child to be born.

At the event, a singer and composer Sivva performed the song "Shusha, good morning!". She appeared on the stage in an outfit specially prepared by Sabina Zulalova for this song.
