Meet The Designers! Episode #11: Aslı Filinta

In the eleventh episode of ‘Meet the designers!’ hosted by Nil Ertürk we meet designer Aslı Filinta. ​

Aslı Filinta launched her own fashion line and showed her first collection in New York in March 2008. While Asli Filinta’s collections may appear to be about femininity for young women, Filinta’s interest is in creating clothes that are entirely unique and timeless, innovative and colorful. Aslı Filinta is characterized by unexpected combinations of materials and its exquisite balance of light and delicate fabrics like tulle, silk and cotton.

Aslı’s usage of techniques based on reinterpretations of patterns of the garment transform the pieces into unexpected shapes and silhouettes. To Filinta, who is influenced by observing her own culture and history, the Aslı Filinta collection has a distinctive elegance that is based on renderings and transformations of basic and funky items. The result is a collection of items that can transition easily between various occasions and not only reserved for special opportunities.

Tune in to hear about Aslı’s inspirations, her travels and the story of her brand. And don’t forget you can find their new summer pieces at the 74Escape GALLERY & STORE in Bodrum now!
