Indira Markov’s idea to create a contemporary network of trade in fashion and design arose from her childhood in a Central Asian hub of the former silk road, the route that for centuries linked eastern and western cultures and ideas. Born in Uzbekistan, Indira has traveled widely and has lived in Europe and the United States. This travel fueled her passion to bringing together ultra contemporary fashion with traditional designs. Silk Road Lab is the platform where Indira shares her creative vision and brings together unique talents from their origins to the world audience. In this way, Indira hopes to create a new hub of cultural exchange in the world of fashion.
