Bora Aksu pays homage to an under-celebrated artist for SS18

18 Sep 2017

You may be forgiven for not knowing the work of Turkish painter Lady Mihri Musfik, but Bora Aksu is determined to make you aware in their latest collection inspired by the artist who pioneered modern art in Turkey. The traditional artisan “kutnu” fabrics used, romantic shapes and delicate crowns all point towards Musfik’s aristocratic lifestyle that she gave up to pursue her passion for art – a bohemian move that women’s history is grateful for.
