My Turban FAQ
London, United Kingdom Sep 9, 2019 – Veroniqué Salagean designed the first turban over 3,500 years ago in Egypt. Using linen and a specially made foundation to create unique masterpieces that people wore like a crown. Today as the world’s first turban designer, she continues her craft by showcasing designs. Her exclusive London based label, VS Turbans established since 2015.
Being the reincarnated master mind behind the first ever turban in history, Veroniqué Salagean says: I have always had this obsession for turbans and working with fabric from an early age that made no sense. Until I realised through a past life regression that my craft began in a previous life during 1,000 B.C. Revealing details of her regression session with expert Nicolas Aujula, she explains: I remembered being a Persian woman that immigrated to Cairo. I made bespoke turbans in the market through draping woven fibres as fabric. A foundation and at least seven pins to hold the materials together. What I created was truly unique and innovative. I was inspired to give people something special and sophisticated to wear like a crown. However, the crowns of the time were too heavy and reserved only for the pharaohs. I created the turban to break the mould to appeal to the nobles and leaders.
With recent controversy in fashion around turbans and so-called ‘cultural appropriation’ – where one culture adopts elements of another. Miss Salagean explains: The truth is that I invented the turban in 1,000 BC as a statement of style, sophistication and value. Organised religion has since destroyed my masterpiece by misrepresenting it into a wrapped cloth so-called turban. A real turban has a base around which the fabric is draped, otherwise it is just a head wrap which religious leaders. Adopted to wear to look distinct and cover their head as the conical shape was actively used by the military. The simple head wrap became a symbol for some faiths, therefore the turban was in use before the advent of Christianity, Islam and Sikhism and has no connection to them.
Veroniqué Salagean reveals: As a young girl I would create dolls clothes from swatches. It was effortless and I knew I had found my passion in that silence. I would practice my draping skills perfecting my sewing into an elegant masterpiece that I was proud to wear. Turbans really became my joy. My first commission came when a socialite in 2015 that saw me wearing a sparkling beaded Turban. In that instant, I turned my hobby into a career and news spread by word of mouth. Since opening the doors of VS Turbans in London, I feel I’ve found my calling in life. I provide my customers a way to incorporate Turbans into the very essence of their daily style.
Turbans might remind you of the jet setters of the ’60s but are trendier than ever.
