Bora Aksu Runway Show for London Fashion Week FW23 Ready To Wear Collection brought rise to a perfect “Wednesday Adam” character as they fashion designer brought the character to life with this impeccable designs.
This season, Aksu looked to the whimsical watercolors of the Canadian artist Marcel Dzama as well as the outsider work of Henry Darger. Aksu has a good eye for incorporating an unexpected reference into his dreamily effervescent world.
These forays into weirder, wonkier territory, such as the asymmetric gowns with a riotous cacophony of polka-dot prints at various scales or the tailoring that exploded with ruffled taffeta at the sleeves, were particularly endearing, with the more mischievous touches balancing out Aksu’s frothier instincts and adding a welcome bite.
Furthermore, it’s important to note Aksu’s growing dedication to upcycling: many of the pastel-hued silks and satins come from rolls of materials with damaged or rejected designs. In addition to being aesthetically pleasing, Aksu observed that taking these previously despised fragments and alchemically changing them into something beautiful is a representation of his brand philosophy.
