ZEYNEP KARTAL AUTUMN/WINTER 2015-16 READY-TO-WEAR LONDON FASHION WEEK
Zeynep Kartal has always had a passion for designing beautiful clothes. At the age of 10 Zeynep attended the local sewing course with her older sister and aunties, and received a symbolic award for her skills from various organisations.
Zeynep was always in demand for creating bespoke pieces for her friends and family, so she decided to embark on a career in fashion design, which led her to twenty years of working in production, marketing, design and textile positions within the industry to gain an insight and wealth of experience which she has now put into practice with the ‘Zeynep Kartal’ label.
Zeynep’s aim is to encourage women to find their own style and to feel confident in their appearance. ‘Zeynep Kartal’s’ signature style is smooth and sophisticated elegance.
She loves using natural fabrics such as silk, crepe, laces and leather with stunning, hand-made embellishments to create a distinctive sense of femininity.
Zeynep likes to take on more than one challenge, and has also launched a ‘Little Ladies’ which is a unique children’s-wear collection, that aims to give ‘Little Ladies’ a touch of ladylike elegance. Another of ‘Zeynep Kartal’s’ unique ranges includes a timeless, handmade leather jacket collection, which emulates the season’s hottest trends.
