Fashion talks smart
KMS California welcomed fashion designer Bora Aksu to their Academy London for the latest Smart Talk event.
Talking about his AW14 show at London Fashion Week, Bora took the audience on a journey from Concept to Creation including what inspired his collection and how it was brought to life. He also shared fascinating insights into his life, career and the success of his brand.
When asked about the secret to his success, he said: “Fashion design, you have it in your blood, it’s a part of you. But, you need to keep an amateur spirit. Each show needs to feel like your first show.”
Bora also credited his love for travel as a key influence for his collections: “It’s important for designers to travel to gain new perspectives and to see things in new and inspirational ways.”
This was the second Smart Talk, a boutique event aimed at bringing hairdressers together to experience an evening of business and/or creative inspiration.
