LFW| Bora Aksu SS14 Show

I was very pleased to see Bora Aksu show, the first show at London Fashion Week.  Started around 9:30 am, and I got there right on time for the show. Fiuuu!!..
Bora is originally from Turkey and has been based in London for 15 years. Bora set up his label upon graduation from his MA at Central Saint Martins. 
His spring/summer 2014 collection has been inspired by his childhood memories. The long, hot summer days spent on the Augean coast are the most prominent recollections that Bora draws on for this season's inspiration.
I defiantly saw the Turkish influence on the catwalk with patterns and textures of traditional handwoven Turkish textiles incorporated to pencil skirts, dresses, cropped jackets and boleros.
Classic shapes have been contrasted with summer shorts and knitted tees while plastinated cottons update the traditional feel.

Soundtrack for the show: Beirut
