Dilara Findikoglu

DESIGNER TO WATCH

Dilara Findikoglu is a 2015 BA Graduate from Central Saint Martins in London. Her BA collection did not get picked for the press runway show so, she staged a guerrilla show in the forecourt of Central Saint Martins. She has been branded as a rebel ever since as her show drew more press than the runway show held inside. The collection she showed was entitled "Shamash" and was inspired by religious and ancient rituals. She debuted her brand at London Fashion Week with her Spring/Summer 2017 Collection in September of 2016. From there Dilara's collections have quickly become synonymous with her unique perspective on luxury fashion. She designs with a strong and deliberate cut to celebrate and empower the female form and uses couture techniques such as attention to quality, detail, and sensibility. She is now one of the most talked about creatives in the British world of fashion. And that's probably why she was nominated for the LVMH Prize in 2017.

On Halloween 2018, Dilara presented her Spring/Summer 2019 Collection that spanned 7 conflict themed rooms. The rooms included sinful vs. innocent, push vs. pull, spiritual vs. physical, future vs. past, modesty vs. provocation, natural vs. synthetic, and good vs. evil. The collection included gowns, bodysuits, a Chanel inspired suit with impeccable tailoring, corsets, pantsuits, and the signature details of feminism, religion, and politics that were subtle yet impactful. If you see her collections, you will know why her talent and aesthetics are talked about and appreciated by her worshippers. Her unique take on luxury is on another level and it is only going to get better from here.
