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.
