AUTUMN-WINTER 2019 COLLECTION “COURAGEOUS”
“In fact, the only thing we need is to unfold the superhero in our minds…“
Gökhan Yavaş, who actualized his first runway show in the context of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Istanbul, is mainly inspired by the superhero identities, whom we sometimes hide or desperately unfold in 2019 Fall-Winter season.
Our modern superheroes whose details are nostalgic but not very unobtrusive, sophisticated, looking for harmony, brave and confident, constitute the main idea of the Gökhan Yavaş’s ”Delivered by DHL” fashion show.
The COURAGEOUS collection, consisting of 75 pieces of clothing design, 3 bags, 30 pair of shoes, and 10 pieces of hats, is combined with plush fabrics, flamboyant print, and embroidery techniques and offers a new look that strengthens step by step.
The choreography, styling, and musics of Gökhan Yavaş’s Fall-Winter 2019 fashion show, which will make us familiar with the superheroes on the streets, with the combination of vibrant colors, skateboard-skate style pieces and high-end luxury pieces combined with styling, were actualized by Arif Örük and Renaissance Model Agency, Taylan Gül and DJ Serhat Erdem.
