The Tuvanam collection presents a timeless yet eclectic collection from an haute couture approach, and reveals a sophisticated and bohemian Tuvanam woman in all her glory.
Tuvana Büyükçinar Demir unveils a collection about a city that is home to the oldest bazaar in the world, where seasons are defined by the wind blows from the northeast or the southeast, and where women who love sunrises and sunsets roam. Romantic and decisive. Adventurous and fearless.
The designer takes us to a time that smells of sandalwood, with her unmatched haute couture dream made of gold dusted French lace and rich embroidery, which becomes more mysterious and sophisticated with transparent pieces.
The designs are in copper, pearl, stone, aged gold, and dust pink colors, and have pearl and crystal embroidery, threading on leather, and 3D embroidery. The aged gold and copper embroidery draw your eyes to the details.
The fashion show was choreographed by Öner Evez and styled by Hakan Öztürk, while the music was mixed by Dogus Çabakçor. Make-up was provided by Icon34 and hair by No 21 and Ibrahim Zengin.
