Tea with Bora Aksu

I really enjoy visiting designers in their studio and chatting about their collections. I’ve been a big fan of Bora Aksu for many years. I went to visit him today to choose a selection of garments that I’m going to use for the Elite Model London fashion show.

I love how Bora uses different textures, fabric weights, knit and embellishment. It always come together so beautifully.

For several seasons Bora has used tights in his show. This autumn we should be able to purchase them as they will be launching a transactional website. They are also introducing a pre-collection for autumn/winter 2012.

I styled this shot a few years ago using one of Bora’s dresses!
