Bora Aksu

 I was actually walking past the Bora Aksu stand at the sommerset house exhibition, but I had to stop. This caught my eye;

I just love the idea of these ruffles being entirely covered. It's something thought of when I saw the Chalayan dress that was covered entirely in ruffles (and I had someone follow me around the design museum at the Hussein Chalayan exhibition because I touched the dress. It was begging to be touched and I just had to know what it felt like. No as bad as when I was told off in the Margiela exhibition at Somerset house for being too pointy. Anyways...) and all I wanted to do was make a cover for them, then squeeze the dress. Bora Aksu did the job for me. 

It's just one of those collections that is so textural that you want to grab at it. I'm really glad it was in the exhibition as well as a catwalk show so I could have a really good look at it. I really appreciate how long these ruffle will have taken too, after sewing my ruffle coat for collection. 

I also really find interesting the shapes created by the sheer weight of the ruffles pulling on such a light net. 

 The lady also told me that these detachable collar will be available separately, which I am very pleased about.

I am also happy about this line of tights. I really like interesting tights, and they tend to be the higher end ones so another line of them can only be a good thing.
