‘Dictated’, Begum Yildrim, Photography and Art Direction by Turkina Faso, Hair Styling by Louis Souvestre, Make Up by Porsche Poon, Model Olga Chernykh

Through working in glass, Begum Yildrim’s collection explores the ideas behind beauty, the body, and its relationship with objects. She takes it a step further by designing pieces that question the authority that fashion artifacts hold over the human figure. This led her to explore notions tied to plastic surgery, human-imposed notions of what’s perfect, and standard visions of beauty. Through a sculpturesque design language, and by using materials such as metal, leather, and glass, Yildrim  dangerously treads the line between fashion and art.
