Designer Asli Filinta showed a collection of easy, draped, tunic inspired ensembles that has a decidedly nomadic feel. The fabrications represented a mélange of colors and textures that seemed at times clashing and at other times harmonic, but always inspired.

Deniz Berdan, mother and daughter team, showcase a very sporty collection. Neon was a large component in the color story, whether it was featured in the linings of hoods or parts of the pants and jackets alike. For fun and intrigue, the designing duo created jewelry that mounted on the models’ faces, heads and even in their mouths to lend an other-worldly, almost alien intrigue.

Creative director, Simay Bulbul offered an easy, inventive take on traditional evening wear that was versatile enough to be worn both day and night. Sheer organza and Chantilly lace were the staples of this monochromatic collection that drew cheers from the crowd as it undoubtedly will with the retailers.

Hakan Akkaya, after his solo showing of his Amish Punk inspired collection a few days prior in NYFW, presented his capsule line of leather and furs in bright metallic hues. Each model walked the runway with full confidence and the audience was visibility excited and surprised to see this side of Hakan. Who traditionally shows only collection in black and white. Fun note… Hakan’s right hand Atelier Assistant, Hilal was one of his models, making her runway debut… fun!
