I know it isn’t a fresh Haute Couture, but I think Dilek Hanif 2011 Spring-Summer Collection is timeless and I would wear any of them.
Racked with global respect, Dilek Hanif graces her golds, laces and curvaceous garments of intricate embroideries between Istanbul, Paris, and Milan where her native patterns of East and West heritage fill hard-earned showrooms.
Inspired by the Ottoman era, Hanif takes the motifs and style of those years and applies it for the modern-day women in this collection. We can find some similarity from Ancient Roman, Greek and Egyptian culture.
The clothes in the collection stay true to the tradition of gold embossed buttons, stitching, and lace work that not only gives the pieces a look of incredible individuality, but also puts into perspective just how much effort went into the outfits. Appealing to the current-day fashionista, there is no lack of feminine charm to the gowns and creations that comprise this collection, which carries a modern edge with its tight form-fitting gowns and dresses along with generously dipped necklines. A signature aspect of many of the gowns is the butterfly sleeves and drapes that were a trademark of Ottoman dresses.
