Bora Aksu - London Fashion Week s/s 2011
London Fashion Week spring summer 2011
What the press are saying:
'You expect something different with Bora Aksu and the Turkish-born designer has once again come up with something different. A collection inspired by ants is surely a fashion week first. Sounds like a disaster on paper but realized in fabric it's actually rather stunning.'
'...models dressed as giant ants, with complicated, twisted coils, ruffles, piping and padding outlining fashion impressions of the head, thorax and abdomen of the scuttling little insects, on body-con dresses.'
Hilary Alexander, The Telegraph
'...dresses with padding across the lower body suggested detailing that was bordering on gynecological, the dresses with exoskeleton-like upper-body padding, like a Wonderbra worn outside the dress, will be a godsend for those of us lacking the must-have accessory of the moment - calendar model breasts. '
Angela Buttolph, Grazia
