London Fashion Week Day 2 SS17 Dilara Findikoglu Presentation
Sunset Strip was the setting for Dilara Findikoglu's Spring Summer 2017 presentation. Rock music, red lights, mirrors, candles, and a checkered stage adorned with fruit and dried flowers made for a moody, indulgent, and unapologetically seedy atmosphere. The collection combined patent and lace, satin and safety pins, beads and chains, hand painted details, embroidery, fishnet, religious symbols and symbols of female empowerment. Dilara Findikoglu crafted a visually complex set of clothes with details ranging from the Baroque era to a sleazy outer-space diner, tying together the past and the future to create a set of powerful pieces aimed at strong, irreverent women who reject the norm and are not afraid to live by their own rules.
