Bora Aksu SS19 at London Fashion Week

SS19 colletion is inspired by the Romani poetess: Bronislawa Wajs, aka Papusza who led a nomadic Roma (gypsy style) life in Poland.

The collection features a mixture of vibrant floral prints and soft silk tulles and laces represent Papuzsa’s nomadic self.

Shades of whites representing her early wedding aged 15yrs,

Deep blue embroidery on white reflects her passionate determined side.

The combination of soft feminine fabrics and structured shapes add a sense of romance to the strong bold silhouettes. Much of the detailing is inspired by early 20th century Romani gypsy lifestyle and their symbolic dress code.
