Tajikistan, Central Asia's poorest country, has hosted its first ever international fashion show.

Designers from Europe and Asia gathered in the capital Dushanbe to show off their latest creations at the event, called Eurasia.

Although none of the big fashion brands took part, organisers hope one day Dushanbe Fashion Week will stand alongside those held in Paris or Milan.
