When in Istanbul, I was interested in getting to know some designers and appreciate where its turkish influence and aesthetic.
I loved the romantique and inspirational designs of turkish ambassador and designer Dilek Hanif, that has presented during the couture week in Paris and London.
I am preparing now my Istanbul second diary (posting it later today!), and just found these photos I really wanted to publish for you. Mermaid inspiration.
