Twisted and mangled in glitzy effervescent PVC thigh-high boots, erogenous corseted bustiers and precious satin ensembles scribbled under gothic block lettering, the punk muses of Dilara Findikoglu’s SS17 collection open heartedly saluted female authority. Hues of pretty pinks embodied the runway, portraying the histrionic illustration of women empowerment. Neck breaking peculiarities dating back to the 1800’s honored the rudiments of decorative biker diligence in celebration of the female form. With an unremitting desire to manifest a ballsy epitome of feminist fashion, the former Central Saint Martin’s grad didn’t fall short of exhibiting a brilliant theatrics story encompassed with a hard-hitting message, pleasant goosebumps and lavish fashion.
In a single showcase, Dara Findikoglu impaired the controversy of genders and tastefully amalgamated a harmonious blend of dazzling embroidery, infamous black and white harlequin print, substantial doses of leather and lace, tattoo prints and metallic-python textures to solace the voice of women yesterday, today and tomorrow.
