DESIGNER SPOTLIGHT|Mehtap Elaidi
As we continue our discovery of Turkish designers, this week we introduce you to Mehtap Elaidi one of Turkey’s leading fashion designer’s. The minute I walked into the trade show Core in Turkey I was drawn to Mehtap Elaidi collection. The designer makes clothes for the modern modest mature women with polish.
The Founder Mehtap Elaidi created her collection in 2000. The young label for Fall 2016 gives you a collection the is young at heart, with basic pieces for your wardrobe made with love in Turkey. To me the collection was a mix of styles from Celine to Marni, but with the Mehtap Elaidi approach. The young label is known for a refined aesthetic characterized by the use of architectural shapes and bold abstract or floral prints. This season we see her interpret the trends her way, clean and minimal and how she uses ruffles to flatter the female form
