About

When London-based designer Dilara Findikoglu—a Central St Martins graduate of Turkish origin—launched her SS17 collection, she did so with an ear-shattering rock soundtrack in a SoHo strip club. Such is typical of a creator who has taken the fashion world both by sabotage and storm. Her reputation for goth aesthetics and shock-like marketing is matched by the designer’s desire to address social issues in her work, questioning a deeply closeted industry while reassessing the female body itself. This Barbara Anastacio-directed profile of the designer’s London home reveals a universe of alluring trinkets and surreal ceremonial mascots, befitting a creator whose work is a spellbinding assemblage of historical references and futuristic fabrications—where Marie Antoinette-style makeup and sci-fi fabrics jostle against Victorian silhouettes and cryptic sorcery.
