MADE IN TURKEY TO DEBUT AT BERLIN FASHION WEEK

Fashion platform Linist, started in Istanbul in September 2011, has taken things to the next level. During July’s upcoming Mercedes Benz fashion week, Istanbul Next - The Future of Fashion Design will make their Berlin debut by showcasing three avant-garde designers from Turkey’s largest city. Burce Bekrek, Günseli Türkay and Zeynep Erdogan have been selected to present their collections at an exclusive catwalk show and a joint booth at Premium Exhibitions Fashion Fair while simultaneously participating at the Premium Young Designers Award.

Istanbul Next was created as a long-term project to accompany Berlin Fashion Week. With the support of the Promotion Fund of the Prime Ministry of the Republic of Turkey and the Turkish Ministry of Culture and Tourism, collections from up-and-coming fashion labels Made in Turkey now have a opportunity to be presented to an international fashion audience.

Gülriz Egilmez, initiator of the Linist platform, had a positive outlook. She said, “Until now, Turkey has been known as a producer, a textile nation and as a strong partner for international fashion brands. For some years now, however, we have begun to establish ourselves as a creative hub for high quality fashion. Our upcoming presentation at Berlin Fashion Week is our chance to show what we’ve done and we’re already gaining wonderful responses.“
