2020 FW Men's Wear
NEW YORK FASHION WEEK
These fabrics has been woven knot by knot in these lands. Grandmothers, grandfathers of everyone had wove. They turned the masts to loom, then wove. There is a trace of Anatolia on all of the shapes I wove today. Full of that much colorful, that much generous, that much grasp of flower, soil, nature, that much benevolent; it was..Unsettled, besides. They were migrating like the birds of passage. They were moving to where the spring was…The nature was, its wealth… I am waving today’s shapes of those days’ tales… Each of the shapes to be tale, once again…Like the running through the buildings, concretes of the reluctant nature; the humans’ shapes which life will find place…
ANATOLIAN FABRIC COLLECTION
Anatolia, or Asia Minor, is a peninsular landmass comprising the Asian portion of the modern Republic of Turkey.
Geographically, the region is bounded by the Black Sea to the north, the Caucasus to the northeast, the Aegean Sea to the west, the Mediterranean Sea to the south, Greater Syria (Upper Mesopotamia) to the southeast and Transcaucasia and the Iranian plateau to the east. The Sea of Marmara is at its northwest.
Culturally, the islands of the eastern Aegean Sea are often included in the definition.
Anatolia lies at the meeting point of the continents of Asia and Europe, extending from the Bosporus and Aegean coast eastward to the borders of the Armenia, Georgia, Iran, and Iraq. Western Anatolia was called "Asia" by the Greeks and Ancient RomeRomans. Later the name "Asia Minor," or "Little Asia," was used to distinguish the peninsula from the land mass of the greater Asian continent.
Anatolia has historically served as a crossroads of both migration and invading armies. It has seen the birth of civilizations including the Byzantine and Ottoman Empires. Because of its strategic location at the meeting point of two continents, the region has played a major role in world history as a bridge connecting East and West. Its culture has a unique blend of Eastern and Western tradition, and is often described as a bridge between the two civilizations.
Euphrates (Fırat)… The Latin word expressing the river by its foolhardy, frenetic character… In the fabric design; rich and fertile land, splendor, power and enthusiasm are the themes; and the landscapes of the river Euphrates between the reality and illusion are portrayed. On the ancient tablets, the river is depicted as “the light reflecting to the eyes of the beloved in the daytime; the let down black hair of the beloved by the night…”. These mystic fabrics which reflect the unique culture of us, found themselves by searching texture and form; and a little comment on “reflections of tradition to textile art and the design of the future” is added. The fiber art and weaving design are kneaded together and presented as an offer to wearable art.
