Turkey in general and Istanbul in particular are certainly to be considered one of the emerging poles of the fashion system.
Just think of the great development that Nişantaşi, the city's fashion district, has had in recent times, which for the massive presence of big names is comparable to the Milan’s « Quadrilatero ». But not only that, the recent launch of the Turkish edition of Vogue, the most important fashion magazine in the world is also an important signal.
One of the main characteristics of the Bosphorus stylists is certainly their ability to expertly mix the decorative elements of the Turkish tradition with the lines of contemporary aesthetics: a striking stylistic combination is born.
The stylist Nedret Taciroglu is certainly one of the most representative exponents of this current: born and raised in Istabul she graduated with honor in interior design at Mimar Sinan University. Her talent combined with the ability to merge love of fashion with interior design led her to launch her first collection in 1980 under her brand name NEDO. She quickly became famous in the World of International fashion, designing, producing and exporting hand-crafted fine leather garments in the most luxurious fabrications and embellishments.
In 2002, Nedret launched NEDRET TACIROGLU COUTURE a fine couture collection appreciated not only by Turkish but also by international clients and buyers.
The delicate fabrics, the attention to detail and romantic taste as well as its special fairy tale like cuts make its collection worthy of being defined as a luxury brand. Every garment is hand-made using delicate fabrics such as lace, chiffon, organza and silk and the use of embellishments enhanced the impression of luxury and elegance.
In 2012, Nedret opened her boutique in Istanbul, where she introduced her ready to wear line. Other than her own boutique in Istanbul, you can find Nedo by Nedret Taciroglu in many important cities all around the world. Her evening dresses in intense colors are embellished with draperies and motifs that recall the Tuğra, the calligraphy of the sultans that decorate the Topkapi Palace, the heart of the Ottoman Empire making them real art masterpieces almost comparable to paintings of 'author.
