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!?

Vogue’s London Trend Report Autumn Winter 2011

Part 2…

  • An obsession with straps and bandaging gives dramatic tension.
  • Colour: between Burberry’s Crayola brights and Louise Gray’s foil-dotted plaid mohair, there is a resplendent feast of colour. Jonathan Saunders’ William Morris-inspired prints in turquoise, coral and leaf green were a real standout.

  • Great new looks for modernists included the long tunic over flaring trousers in plays of sheer and print.
  • Silhouettes have simplified and purified. This is a season of evening trousers matched with fancy blouses, of demure sheath-like dresses with high necks and long sleeves.
