The paper explores the emerging of ethnic orientation of the creative style of the Omsk fashion design school, systematizes the experience in studying the ethnic direction and its implementation in the educational process. Considerable attention has been paid to the activities of the Siberian Ethnic Festival, aimed at developing ethnic culture and national roots of the Siberian region. The study considers the path to the birth of the festival itself, which is a logical result of many years of research and creative work of an ethnic and national character. It also describes the introduction of folk socio-cultural traditions into the system of higher education and development of aesthetic education with the help of folklore and national costume from the beginning of the existence of the Omsk fashion design school. The preservation and cultivation of national traditions in the Omsk fashion design school has several incarnations and is a kind of fundamental layer of spiritual education and familiarization with the roots in the educational environment. Firstly, on the basis of the Russian folk costume as an artistic and design source of creativity, the school builds training in the basics of costume design. Secondly, the Department of Fashion Design has conducted fundamental and applied – archaeological and ethnographic studies of a significant part of the territory of the Western Siberia. Such attention to folk costume, its study, interpretation of artistic design and semantic components naturally found embodiment in a new form of artistic expression and popularization of ethnic roots – All-Russian Siberian Ethnic Festival of Arts and Design, which is now a platform for dissemination of spiritual and material culture.
