Styled by Nesley Nazari, SS14 at NIAN by Nihan Buruck is the woman empowered. This woman is smart; she is strong; she is her own person and she dares to work her creativity. The Turkish, Yeditepe University graduate has been developing her aesthetic in her Istanbul based studio since 2007 and is back after a showcase with the RunWay Collective last season with her Fashion Scout solo catwalk debut.

Rooney Mara in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo styling; androgynous long line sleeveless blazers courted one piece swimsuits while subtly printed fabrics floated like water behind the models. Soft tailoring to the extreme; blazers made of silk that from a distance, could have been tweed. The illusion of print and layering twinned with a sense of sensibility lent beautifully to the panelled blouses and thigh scraping shorts while an extreme nod to the masculine saw a quartet of male models broke the line of winged heels donned in sophisticated suits.

With a packed front row; the crowds were out in force to support the young talent and Nazari did not disappoint. The focused collection compiled of a subtle palette of mauves, lime greens and dirty whites to name but a few. The show galvanised with The Chemical Brothers to a resounding applause from onlookers.
