COLLECTION| Zeynep Tosun FEB'13

Renowned for haute couture and her powerful designs, Zeynep Tosun showcased another outstanding collection for AW13.

Taking inspiration from the life of pirates, revolutionary women and the Victorian era; Zeynep’s collection focussed on exaggerated shoulders, asymmetric skirts, mid length dresses with detailed hem lines, flared trousers, boyfriend fit coats and extravagant Victorian-esque neck shapes.

Whilst some garments were androgynous, others were quintessentially feminine, with fabrics including embroidered leather, sheer mesh, velvet and rough silk, juxtapositioned to create a dramatic but elegant aesthetic. The colour scheme consisted of caramel, tabacco brown, mustard, black and a rich regal red. Footwear was undeniably impressive, in the shape of wooden heeled western style embroidered leather, over the knee boots.
