Wuppertal Meets Armenia

We are really proud to have such talented designers in the list of our partners. Here’s a story of SINOIAN brand.

Emin Bolbolian from Wuppertal (the greenest city in Germany), combines his youth passion within Armenian roots to create a fashion brand SINOIAN. The 31-year-old designer creates unique ethnic high-end streetwear.

He redesigned jeans for classmates

Bolbolian did not graduate in fashion design, but finished his studies in communication design in Wuppertal, and later at Folkwang University of Arts in Essen, Germany. “However, fashion is something that I was interested in and that inspired me since my early youth,” he says. At the age of 16, he created his first own collection.

Well-known musicians wear his fashion

“I have an exclusive contract with the painter Sevada Grigoryan, so I can use parts of his oil paintings for my fashion,” says Emin. Also Armenian historical elements taken from the early Armenian Bible, as well as from manuscripts and illuminations with their rich floral ornaments are being used by Bolbolian in his design work.

After all he could succeed: all great artists such as chansonnier Charles Aznavour or the co-founder of the band System Of A Down, musician OnTronik, are wearing his fashion pieces. In 2015, the emerging designer has successfully represented Armenia at the first-ever Eurovision Fashion Show “Fashion For Europe” in Vienna. ”
