Bora Aksu S/S 2013 @ London Fashion Week
I wanted to start inviting guest bloggers to use my page to share their love of …well, everything really!
I would like to introduce an old friend of mine Miss Hansy Hobs of www.bowdreamnation.com
I adore Bora Aksu but unfortunately couldn’t make the show yesterday. Miss Hansy Hobbs has done a delicious review of the Bora Aksu S/S 2013 collection:
Is it possible for a designer collection to become more beautiful, more elegant and more enchanting each season? In the case of Bora Aksu a big resounding yes! Yesterday afternoon the Turkish, London-based designer delivered his SS13 collection to rapturous applause. In a continuation from his AW12 collection this season saw models saunter down the runway in opulent dresses and skirts offset by statement prints and big, frizzy beehives. Whilst the pastel blues and greys remained understated big pops of primary colours such as yellow and red really made this a statement collection. The regal theme was inspired by Marie, the granddaughter of Queen Victoria who later went on to become Queen of Romania and each model wore a magnificent knitted crown with drop down hair braiding acting as the perfect accessory. Every piece was beautiful yet whilst the entire collection was bold, decadent and contained a strong regal theme the delicate organza silk of the gowns and fitted shapes of the jackets remained feminine and wearable. This Modern Queen collection really is just that!
