Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Istanbul Fall/Winter 2014

On Saturday in Istanbul ended Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. It was five days of beautiful, interesting and amazing projects from Turkish fashion world. TV celebrities, famous actresses, models, businesswomen and fashion bloggers came to this world-famous fashion event.
MBFWI was held in the hall Antrepo 3, adjacent to the museum "Istanbul Modern", in two halls of the "Runway" and "Studio". Some of runways took place in private, outside the hall. Show of the famous designer Özgür Masur  was presented at the Consulate General of the French Republic, the Turkish designer who lives permanently in Paris Arzu Kaprol invited to view her collection also to the private show. In this year MBFWI was attended by over forty Turkish designers. Eight of them were presented for the first time.

Mercedes- Benz supports some of designers, this season it was the brand "Lug Von Siga". Very interesting project and collection. Good choice! I liked the silver blouse. All the collection I find very interesting.

My favorite of the whole week was the DB Berdan brand. Created by mother and daughter, Deniz and Begüm Berdan. Fantastic, unique, eye-catching duo. Vivid colors, good fabrics and good music during the runway. Excellent show, a lot of positive energy.

There were also men's fashion . From London came to present his collections Serdar Uzuntaş. Also excellent show made Emre Erdemoğlu and Niyazi Erdoğan. An interesting collection of headgear presented designer Merve Bayındır.

On the MBFWI we also had model representations from Poland: Wiola Kowal from Rebel Models, Maryia Rehilevich from Mango Models, and Blażej from Panda Models.

"Silsile" new Turkish movie of Ozan Açıktan

Ozan Açıktan is a young Turkish director. He studied in Turkey and also in Poland, in Łódź, Polish National Film School. I met him few years ago on Vodafone Turkey shooting with production company PToT (Production Team of Turkey). It was a big surprise when he spoke to me in Polish :)
He has directed many advertising films and 3 cinema movies.

"Silsile" (Range) is a movie about love, friendship, relationships and crime.
It shows how life can change in one night.
Very nice cast, very good story, great pictures.
Movie was produced by PToT and BKM Films
I had chance to be in the premiere. It was my 1st gala in Turkey. I was so excited I forgot to take with me the battery to my great Nikon camera. How is that? Thanks God I had my Nokia Lumia :)
