Street Style Inspired By Armenian Culture

Bio: An Armenian girl living in Los Angeles with Parisian sensibilities.

My blog may be called, “Kris Chérie,” but my real name is Kristiné Agabaian (pronounced Kris-ti-neh Acha-pah-ian). I’m an Armenian girl who lives in Southern California, (which contains the second largest Armenian population outside of Armenia), who is infatuated with the French influence in the fashion industry. Although I may have a slight crush on Parisian culture, my first love will always be my roots – Armenian.

Growing up in an Armenian household has taught me many things, and it’s also why I am the person I am today. I was born in Yerevan, Armenia and my family moved to the States when I was barely three years old. My parents sacrificed everything to start a new life in a place entirely different than what they were accustomed to. But even though they left their homeland to start a new chapter elsewhere, they never failed to remind us where we came from.

April plays a crucial role in the Armenian culture, particularly April 24th. But for this post, I didn’t want to dwell on a dark past but instead celebrate the beauty of Armenian culture and move forward on a positive note. So to celebrate my roots, I put together a few modern day street style looks inspired by the beauty of Armenia and the traditional “Taraz.”

Armenia’s rich history, culture, and traditions consist of many colorful and beautifully handcrafted garments that have been worn through the ages. The traditional Armenian “Taraz,” and the symbolic colors used, portrayed significant meaning and were even believed to bring good luck. The black of the earth, white representing water and symbolizing prudence, red for the air and bravery, yellow of the flame and purple portraying wisdom. Another detail in traditional Armenian costume was the prints and beautiful embroideries. Let’s not forget the jewelry – bold and ethnic sterling silver pieces that make a statement!

Long dresses were also adorned in patterns which served to protect women from evil and were also a symbol of modesty and gentleness, not just decoration.
