Serkan Cura Couture AW1213
Serkan Cura, after recieving his diploma from l’Académie Royale d’Anvers in 2007, spent four years working in the creative workshops of Jean Paul Gaultier.
Fortified from this experience he presented this season his second couture collection under his name. He shows a flare for exccentric sillhouettes and an affinity for fantastic materials. His creations turn the women who wear them into magical creatures rather than some red carpet princess. These are true works of imagination and creativity.
His Fall 2012-2013 collection is full of feather-work and corsetry. His hope is to bring back ancestral techniques of working with different materials, to show all the aspects that feathers can have with the different ways thet are treated and used. What results from his desire to show off his techniques is one where we are drawn into a magical realm of these natural fibers that have taken on a whole new form, yet retain their original aspects of beauty. (I would love to see his take on a costume for “The Firebird” the ballet by Igor Stravinsky and Michel Fokine). The pieces shown July 2nd 2012 for the Parisian couture week are each different and create together a show. I look forward to seeing his progression in couture.
