Destination Inspired Fashion...


While you may be enjoying your holidays in the perfect festive mood, we are busy finding interesting things for you to make your celebrations and festivals the happier ones! And look where were we for some such news search? Well, this fashion event at the Embassy of Turkey in India was all about a beautiful resort collection meant to woo the avid women traveller, by designer Anu PD!

So, what was the event all about? You can call it a nice and creative blend of travel concepts, fused with some stylized outfits. While well-known traveller  Inder Raj Ahluwalia shared some of his interesting experiences when he was travelling to this beautiful country - Turkey, this newbie designer created a complete line of resort wear that had a visible inspiration from various places of Turkey, especially Istambul.

The aim was to foster relationships, develop newer opportunities amongst professionals and people who matter to both the continents. Of course, the Ambassador and his lovely wife both played a wonderful host, attending to each table.

Speaking about the evening, H.E. Dr. Burak Akcapar said, “The evening has been curated to highlight Turkey’s profile as the hottest emerging tourist destination in India and emphasizes synergies between Turkish-Indian cultures through fashion.”  
Adding further to this, Dr. Sebnem Akcapar, Ambassador's wife said that they always wanted to host a fashion event in the capital, which would attract attention of people with a good sense of fashion. “When Anu came with this great idea combining travel with fashion, we offered to host it since Turkey is a country with quality textiles and fashionable designs. She is especially inspired by Istanbul’s stylish neighborhoods by the Bosphorus for the street chic and crowded Grand Bazaar for the curious, the blue of the Mediterranean, as well as earthy tones of the Cappadocia. In this collection, she displayed the beauty and elegance so successfully," she summed. 
Indeed it was a colourful evening with booze and fashion networking going parallel to the travel talks. The use of sheer fabrics, grading colour techniques, feminine and sexy cuts, and the beautiful accessories all played a role in the interesting discussion of Turkey as a new travel destination. 
And why not/ After all, the theme of the show was ‘Fashion n Travel Incubator’, showcasing the magical blend of Turkey yesterday and today – a country on the move. “Staying on the Road is more fun than arriving at the Destination” , said the designer.  "Turkey has been on my mind for a long time; it is this magical blend of ancient, ottoman and modern. The four looks- "morning at the bazaar"; "day on a yacht"; "dusk on Riviera" and "Club" incorporate some trends for the season and are inspired by Turkey," she said. 

Which one is your pick for your next travel? Time to enjoy some Turkish hospitality!
