London based Turkish designer Bora Aksu received his first acclaim when he graduated from Central St Martin's MA in 2002. Hailed as ‘the star of the show' by The Daily Telegraph, The Guardian and The Independent, Bora's collection also attracted the eye of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabanna who purchased pieces to use as inspiration. 

His debut off-schedule show took place at London Fashion Week in February 2003. A resounding success his debut was named ‘one of the top five shows' by The Guardian and subsequently led Aksu to receive the New Generation Award placing him on the official London Fashion Week schedule the very next season. In total, four consecutive New Generation Awards were given to Bora who remains on the official London Fashion Week schedule. 

Throughout his career he has developed a very distinct signature. Romantic but always with a darker twist his demi-couture pieces are full of elegance, intrigue and seduction. During his career Bora Aksu has collaborated with international brands and organizations like Topshop, Nike, Converse, Anthropologie, Absolute, Dali Institute, Premier Vision and Design Museum. He has also created costumes for signers like Rita Ora, Ellie Goulding, Tori Amos, while dressing stars like Elle Fanning, Marion Cotillard, Poppy Delevingne, Erin O'connor, Keira Knightley, Dove Cameron, Eleanor Tomlinson, Lucy Boynton, Ophelia Lovibond and Sienna Miller for film junkets. 

Bora was invited to Buckingham Palace by Queen Elizabeth for his contributions to British Fashion Industry in 2010. Autumn/Winter 2012 saw Bora Aksu's first launch of Handbag collection, released exclusive for Harrods. Bora won the designer of the Year award at the Elle Style Awards in Istanbul in 2012. In 2015 Bora Aksu was chosen as one of the iconic fashion designers by Premier Vision Paris. Bora Aksu‘s first flagship store opened in Beijing in 2015. With more stores to follow in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Macao-Paris and Singapore. Presently total 25 Bora Aksu stores have opened in Asia Pacific.
