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.”

IDEAL CLIENT:
“She defines beauty in her own way. Tori Amos captures this for me.”

TRADEMARK PIECE: “The cocktail dress.”

COLLECTION: “I have been watching short school sports day documentaries from 1902 and 1905! I am also very drawn to characters like Rhoda from 1956 cult movie ‘Bad Seed’.”

WHAT MAKES LONDON WOMENSWEAR SO EXCITING? “I think it's the unpredictable feeling of the womenswear collections coming from London that makes it very interesting. There is never a safe path, which always makes it exciting.”

WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO IN YOUR STUDIO? “First Aid Kit and Beirut.”
