Bora Aksu
DESIGNER NAME: Bora Aksu

BACKGROUND: Originally from Turkey, Bora has been based in London for 15 years. Bora set up his label upon graduation from his MA at Central Saint Martins.

SIGNATURES: “My signature style is based upon finding the balance point between contrasts. It’s romantic with a darker twist.”

TRADEMARK PIECE: “The cocktail dress.”

THE COLLECTION: “For spring/summer 2015 I’m drawn to the background characters of fairy tales. Grimms original tales were for adults and were much darker then the children versions. I am trying to explore what it would have felt like to be a background character such as Cinderella’s step sister.”

WHAT DO YOU CONSIDER YOUR GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT? “For me being a designer and being able to do what I love as a job is a total achievement on its own. But it's also a great feeling of accomplishment when a collection you put your heart and soul into is well received and completely sells out in store.”

IF YOU COULD DRESS ANYONE, WHO WOULD IT BE & WHY?
“Princess Tyra of Denmark was such an interesting character for her time and it would have been amazing to dress her. She was such a striking and unusual beauty.”
