Istanbul appears to be making a comeback this year, as it does every year. Even though each of the designers' pieces has a powerful message, these themes are closely connected to a multi-cultural sociological structure. Futuristic themes, which are regularly seen at the fashion weeks in Paris, Milan, New York, and London, were also on the agenda at Istanbul Fashion Week. Some designers call attention to the status of women in society and the challenges of the community, while others focus on sustainability, social awareness, and vision for the future. Istanbul Fashion Week has once again become a hotspot for polyphonic designs and figurative fashion.
With the phrase "The Best Time to Plant," DB Berdan was able to send a strong message. Of course, her pioneering and contemporary silhouettes did not overwhelm this profound message. While embarking on a journey through the streets of Kalamış in the 1960s and 1970s, Mehtap Elaidi chose to reflect all the elements in her memory into her designs, from young people who go to the sea with their boats from their mansion apartments to juicy tomatoes plucked from their branches in the apartment gardens. The classic eco-friendly items that guide each of Lug Von Siga's collections are in tune with the Baksi Museum's historical silhouette, which serves as the campaign's focal point.
Hot concepts like "Less is More" and "Minimalism," which have been frequently crossed paths in the fashion world recently, were handled in a hysterically funny and thought-provoking way in REDBEARD's new campaign film by Tanju Babacan. Well-known designer, who exposed the emptiness of some dogmatic judgments that have become fashion clichés, given fashion a realistic perspective.
Without a doubt, Istanbul Fashion Week has hosted several notable designers and has already given us a glimpse of the collections that will be showcased in the coming season.
