LFW A/W 13/14 – Zeynep Tosun

Zeynep Tosun is an Instituto de MarangoniΒ graduate, fromΒ 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.

LFW A/W 13 Runway Collective – Nihan Buruk

The RunWay Collective debut’d at Fashion Scout showcasing two very different Turkish designers.

The first designer Nihan Buruk, from Istanbul, graduated from the Fashion and Textile Design of Yeditepe University in 2007. Besides fashion design, Buruk is also an interior designer.

Nazari’s collection titled, Nian, was a powerful collection which was beautifully tailored. Each piece was strong, with an androgynous sense and beautiful strong fabrics of wool and leathers. The collection’s colour palette started with monochrome and greys but finished off with bright crimson reds.

The collection was really beautiful and I wish I could fill my wardrobe and keep myself warm with the whole collection, particularly the last crimson red coat!
