This romantic dress by Turkish designer Bora Aksu presents a feminine silhouette in a powerful tone of red. Aksu has built a reputation for his decorative statement pieces that are ready-to-wear yet have been produced with a similar level of care as couture; he describes them as ‘demi-couture’. With its large flower print, Victorian-inspired collar and tulle around the shoulders, this piece is a fine example of the style. Aksu’s autumn/winter 2018/19 collection showcases such elegant items along with tailored, androgynous looks for women. Bora Aksu has eight dedicated stores in Asia and his pieces are stocked by many high-end boutiques around the world.
