SYMBAT Fashion Academy Kazakhstan

The Kazakhstani fashion started in 1947 from sewing laboratory which is now known as “Symbat” Fashion Academy. Twice a year the Theatre of fashion presents brand new collections Haute Couture to audience and prêt-â-porter on international fashion weeks. More than 150,000 exclusive pieces have been presented over 60 years of company’s existence. Since 1972, “Symbat” participated in about 40 festivals, competitions and presented Kazakhstani fashion abroad during fashion weeks in Dubai, Moscow, Washington and Siberia. Today “Symbat” Fashion Academy is a distinctive Holding, which apparently includes VIP- Fashion Salons, Clothing – knitwear, shoe manufactures, Fashion Theatre, Trade complex, Educational Institution(Symbat, 2009)

The President of Fashion Academy “Symbat” – Assanova Sabyrkul is a candidate of economic sciences, doctor of engineering sciences, and corresponding member of Engineer of Kazakhstan. She is an author of a number of books on national clothes, costume history and terminology dictionary. (Fashion week in Moscow, 2009) All these years “Symbat” adhered to the main principal of its creative activity with care kept up the traditions of national dresses, embodied them harmonically in modern fashion and formed a new fashionable image of Kazakhstan. (Vendenty, 2009)
I have decided to look at “Symbat” in order to identify possible barriers towards sustainability innovation and find opportunities because I am interested in fashion industy and I am conserned about the sustainability issue back home.
