Bora Aksu.. Over The Top with Textiles or Textile Fabulous?

Bora Aksu is a London-based Turkish designer. He is best known for, based on a balance between differing textures and fabric weights, knitting techniques and embellishment.

Here are a few pieces from his Autumn Winter 2011 collection:

There were a lot of textiles in this collection, perhaps a little too much? I am very impressed that he is going out there for knit and stitch but was it a little too crafty? I’d love to know your thoughts! Did he bring a good balance of fashion and textiles to this collection or did the fact that he is ‘known for textiles’ result in it appearing slightly like a school project?

Is Bora Aksu over the top or textile fabulous?

Bora also designs a Fairtrade capsule collection for People Tree… A little plain and dull but Fairtrade all the same. Isn’t it about time Fairtrade became fashionable and fun? Obviously if there are already companies out there doing it already I’d love to know who and where they are!?
