Editor @ Large . . . Bora Aksu

I always love Bora Aksu and today was no exception. Avsh Alom Gur was sitting behind me (I was on front row naturally) and as I pondered why we aren't seeing his creative flair this season, the show began. 

Bora Aksu showed his usual futuristic flare with twisted knits, draped chiffons and silk dupions all in fantastic array of sugared pink, blue and camel. Aksu effortlessly mixed web knits and silk tulle ruffles to create structure and texture, utilising this technique to create shoulder details and emphasise waspie waists.
Like earlier shows, brocade in metallic tones made an appearance and textured marble prints created depth to garments. Skirts bell shaped while dress shapes borrowed bubble and tulip hems and shoulders were strong. Dress panelling was again order of the day and these body con tops seem here to stay. Central panelling in an hour glass shape in nudes and silks showed how perfect the pattern cutting was.
Bora is one master dj of fabric mixing and created a stunning futuristic yet on trend collection.
