The second designer (another Turkish designer) to be presented by House of Evolution was designer, Gül Agiş who showed under her label Lug Von Siga.
Her collection, aptly named ‘A Stranger Under the Dome of the Grand Bazaar’, was inspired by the passages of the Grand Bazaar through the eyes of a stranger. Beautiful painting like prints mixed with leather for that extra bit of punch. The colour palette started with the staple monochrome colours with splashes of orange, burgundy and navy… and then finished off with London Fashion Week favourite, of graphical prints. This collection was very edgy with clean cuts, and the makeup and hair complemented beautifully.
I loved the detailing in the skirt, with the pleated underskirt peeping out in the split.
I’m so sorry its taken me so long to post the Day 3 photos of London Fashion Week… technical hiccups with the photos and also my corporate job has been FULL on since Fashion Week started (of course! law of Murphy is it?).
But, I definitely will continue my pics from the shows and also from the exhibition at Somerset House!
I really enjoyed the collection by DB BERDAN, an unusual duo of mother and daughter from Istanbul, who were inspired by the Golden Era of the 20th Century. Deniz Berdan, the mum, originally worked as a fashion editor and Begum, the daughter, studied costume for performance at the London College of Fashion. The collection was very girly and playful with gorgeous mixes of prints that is “so hot right now”.
Cutesy soft pastels combined with just enough stripe black to not make the collection too doll like. The oversized satchels in glittery metallic and light greens and pinks are definitely an easy to wear accessory!
(notice my graphic designer skills… hahaha…will remember to me more careful with photos next time!)
