After working at leading Turkish fashion houses such as Vakko, Aslı Fılınta moved to New York and quickly attracted a worldwide following for her quirky, DIY-inspired clothing and accessories. The past decade has also seen the international explosion of Turkish clothing brand T.box. Now these two stylish, globe-trotting Turkish talents have joined forces. Fılınta is the designer behind the spring/summer 2011 collection at T.box, which she recently joined as creative director. Her carefree and colourful designs, which make an occasional nod towards Turkish culture, can be found at the T.box boutique in Istanbul Sapphire.
