Fall 2013 Collection
I am very much attracted to shapes, and most of my inspiration comes from architectural pieces. For this collection, I looked to architect Zaha Hadid’s Kartal Pendik Masterplan, a vision for a new urban center in Istanbul that includes a three-dimensional organic grid structure. My designs, which look avant-garde, represent the harmonization of shapes from her presentation. Expect lots of French seaming, bold patterns, and neutrals.
