This afternoon saw the return of Turkish designer Gül Agiş’s label Lug Von Siga to the catwalk at Freemasons Hall. After making a powerful impact last season, this seasons eagerly anticipated show started with a statement - resonant tribal music echoing deep through the crowd.

Inspired by rich Turkish heritage and culture, along with a multiplicity of Turkish political issues, Gül’s collection aims to arouse and provoke international interest. The focus of the collection has definitively tribal origins. Initially starting by working with tribal masks, Gul developed the unique mask style prints into her garment fabrications, through the use of appliqué techniques, leather, and sheer silks amongst other futuristic fabrics. These are then juxtaposed with intricate fabric cutting and futuristic metal beading techniques to create elegant cut-out dresses, printed bomber jackets and thigh skimming co-ords.

The final aesthetic was decadent, luxurious and lavish; the Lug Von Siga woman is nothing but sexy, dignified and most importantly, fierce. We can only anticipate Gül’s next collection.
