Top Model and Front Row Celebrity Opportunities at JOHN PAUL ATAKER NYFW Show


This season’s collection is based on the rich cultural heritage of The Black Sea zone of Turkey.  Authentic assets of the region are incorporated into Ataker’s signature gowns, dresses and separates designed for daily and formal wear.  Inspired by native and traditional garments of the people, “cepken” (bolero jackets), shalwar (baggy pants), peshtemal (loincloth), and waistcoats have been modified for the collection in a range of fabrics spanning from cotton to linen, organza to jacquard and viscose finalized by hand sewn needlework.  The color palate this season has a large emphasis on unbleached fabrics and is predominantly white, ivory and black.

In line with “slow fashion” principles, all of the materials and dyes have been chosen to be as environmentally and ecologically friendly as possible with a focus on human health and wellness.
