Hair & Make Up
Bora Aksu is known for his romantic creations, this was visible in the choice of hair styling, naturaly straight hair brought to one side and simply tucked behind the ear and adorned with a stoned clip. Elegant as well as modern. Make Up wise, Aksu opted for quite a full face of make up including a berry lip, contoured faces and peach coloured cheeks, quite a feminine look finished with a dark eye, another one of Aksu’s traits: feminine beauty with a dark twist.

Shape & Style
In terms of shape and style Bora Aksu’s Autumn Winter 15 collection is all about the layers and the fabric. Despite being for winter, the collection featured shorts, short skirts and slightly cropped tops as well as midi skirts, pencil skirts and highly adorned shirts and cardigans.
The structure of each look followed the mandate of a light weight base layer, then building upon thickness with each additional layer. I.e Light tops with heavier jackets.
The theme of love, with a twist appeared later on in the show with old era cut dresses meeting new materials that provided a gothic look on a feminine shape.
Materials used include: sheer fabric, mesh, heavy crochet
Aksu teamed delicate, light fabrics with heavier layers such as grey, crocheted fabric, for dramatic effect, for a more feminine look he adorned dresses with cut our material flowers, frills and pleated frills finishing edges and shirts with peter pan collars, loose bows and hand room pockets.
Throughout the show heeled ankle boots were worn with pulled down black socks. One earring was worn on the opposite side of the hair to balance out the head. Tribal bracelets, clutches and capes appeared throughout the show and showstopper: large, costume piece jewellery and broaches was used to highlight the neck area and draw attention to the upper body.
Overall, It was a real show, opening with a narrator discussing love and precious stones and coming to a close with all the models storming the catwalk.
