Dilek Hanif


 For her Fall/Winter 12 Couture Collection, Dilek Hanif  found her inspiration in the height of  the Glorious Ages of  the  Ottoman Empire and the Italian Renaissance. As always Dilek’s universal style combines cultures of East and West as she reaches out to  sophisticated women across the world. Her  philosophy and mantra based on respect breathes a harmonious elegance that surpasses trends.

To weave her story of beauty and aesthetic perfection a depth of richness is attained through  the use of noble fabrics such as silk velvet &  brocade, chiffon and lace all  embellished with luscious embroidery.  Feather detail adds a lightness and glamour.

Exotic and sharply modern at the same time her structured volumes contrast with sensual  swirls and arabesques .  Her color palette of deep crimson, vivid violet  and gold is  offset by a  dominant black undercurrent .

Passionate Baroque a modern interpretation by Dilek Hanif.
