Hot New Designer Watch: ASLI FILINTA!

Since I’m all about new designers, and hot undiscovered talent here’s a great new designer for you to check out!

Born in Adana, Turkey she moved to Ankara when she was 18 to study Economics at Bikent University. She then moved to Istanbul to work in 2001. She began designing jewelry, which eventually lead to clothing and prints. Upon moving to New York City to live she developed her techniques further by attending classes at the proclaimed Parsons The New School. Now based out of New York she is designing women’s clothing and accessories.

Asli on her collection….”The oriental look of Istanbul allows each design to carry a proprietary exoticness dreaming up in the cross-cultural trends of the time in New York City. Besides the overflowing creativity and experimentation, there is receptiveness to new ideas. Some intangible elements of the time make it unique.”

“One common belief within the collection is anti-conformity and the major influence for my designs came out of the DIY culture of the arts.”
