The 2012 Haute Couture Summer Collection of Dilek Hanif is out just in time for those who are already thinking about the upcoming summer months – the ideal time for weddings in Istanbul.
Dilek Hanif is an internationally renowned Turkish designer who was on the runway of Paris Haute Couture Week for the 17th time in January, and whose gown was worn by Jane Fonda during the Oscars last month.
Hanif is known for applying authentic Ottoman elements and items like cepken (a traditional kaftan-like, short vest), kaftans, and traditional Turkish handcrafted designs to modern gowns. Her 2012 Haute Couture Summer Collection was inspired by the refined and daring style of the 90s women, and mainly features pastel colors like off-white, sea green, and beige. The handcrafted designs add a touch of color with vivid colors like silver, coral, green, and blue. Maçka Caddesi No. 59/2, Teşvikiye; P: (0212) 219 37 23
