I am lucky enough to be invited the S/S 19 Tuba Ergin Runway Show during the #MBFWISTANBUL this season. During my studies at London College of Fashion – I was fortunate to be invited the Bora Aksu shows during the London Fashion Week – and really enjoyed the experience. This year I happened to be in Istanbul during the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Istanbul, attended some panels and couple of shows – loved the experience. The most memorable show for me was the Tuba Ergin. Here are some of my favourite looks from the runway show.
