Istanbul Fashion: A City and its Fashion Makers by Petra Hesse

Istanbul, city of contrasts, is a bubbling cultural metropolis. In the hip quarters of Tesvikiye und Nisantasi, which are the preferred districts of artists and designers, the range of artistic approaches and attitudes is ever-present. The new Turkish art and design scene has been shaped by the innovative breakthrough of the twenty-first century like almost no other city in Europe. Whether in art, design, music or literature, Istanbul is the creative heart of the Turkish avant-garde.

The creations of Istanbul's fashion designers are always astonishing, unconventional and modern. They move between history and modernity, tradition and innovation, between humanism and the cosmopolitan, philosophy and religion - poles which, for the Turkish designers, definitely do not oppose one another. To all of them Istanbul is an inexhaustible source of impressions, stimuli, ideas and images.
