Fashion Exotica

The first international Istanbul Fashion Week ended yesterday with a multitude of celebs in attendance.  Sex and the City costume designer Patricia Field, Anna Kournikova and supermodels like Alessandra Ambrosio and Alek Wek were seen in the front row.  Turkey is hoping to bring Istanbul to the forefront of fashion.  And why not?  Istanbul is a city rich with gorgeous textiles and young designers ready to make their mark in the fashion world.

I was there only last summer wandering the Grand Bazaar, sipping Turkish tea at the Aruna Cafe underneath the Galata Bridge and wandering the gardens of various mosques and palaces.  But it already feels like ages ago and I’m longing for another visit to this magical city.  If you are planning to go anytime soon, check out the New York Times 36 Hours in Istanbul.
