Turkish Designer, Seckin Ilker, proudly debuts her Fall/Winter 2012 Collection at Nolcha Fashion Week: New York this February. Held simultaneously with Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, Nolcha is one of New York’s leading platforms for global independent fashion designers.
Ilker’s new collection for this season is inspired by “reflections of emotions,” with high quality garments made from silk, taffeta, organdy and French lace which create an elegant look. Ilker’s line will also include her bridal extension, “Silhouette Bride,” with a focus on reflecting the emotions behind “innocence,” and “purity.” The bridal line will be light weight including wedding dresses, evening dresses, and even a more casual take on a mini wedding dress. This season’s color palette will integrate a contrast between red, black and dark blue, to pink, salmon and cream with an emphasis on romance.
Named after the Turkish designer herself, Seckin Ilker Fashion House was first opened in Istanbul, Turkey seven years ago. Ilker began her career producing haute couture lines for her showroom, which attracted both local and international clients. She later grew in to designing eccentric ready to wear collections and in 2010, she created her second brand, Silhouette Bride, for wedding and evening dresses. Silhouette Bride has become one of the ‘must visit’ stores on Badgat Avenue in Istanbul.
After her last runway presentation, which took place at Cevahir Hotel in Istanbul, Ilker realized the growing international interest for her line, and as such, she will be opening stores in New York, Paris, Riyadh, Jeddah and Jakarata in 2012/2013.
The Seckin Ilker Runway Presentation will take place during Nolcha Fashion Week on Thursday, February 9th at 9:00pm at The Ailey Studioes 405 West 55th Street (at Ninth Avenue).
