Zeynep Tosun is an Instituto de Marangoni graduate, from Istanbul who worked for Alberta Ferretti before moving back to starting her own label in 2008. <There is some beautiful designs coming from Turkey>
Zeynep gave us an opulent collection filled with strong shapes, think big bold collars and sleeves, leather, bright yellow and orange colours and bold graphic prints. Everything that is so very on trend but mixed with a fabrics of lush velvet and ruffled collars of a renaissance era, and oddly, with a twist of cowgirl elements.
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!)
