Debut of 'Istanbul: The City of the Sultans' in New York

Acclaimed Turkish designer Nedret Taciroglu will make her much-anticipated USA debut during New York's Couture Fashion Week in September 2008 at the Westin Times Square in the heart of the Big Apple. Ms. Taciroglu will present her latest collection entitled “Istanbul: The City of the Sultans."

The inspiration for her Nedret Taciroglu's latest collection is the highly esteemed and important “Sultans' Signatures.” The Sultans' Signatures were not created by the Sultans themselves, but by calligraphers during the Ottoman Empire.

Each one is distinctive and reflects the ruler's power through intricate designs featuring both letters and patterns. In order to introduce the Sultans' Signatures to the world, Mrs. Taciroglu blended history with modernism over a period of five months to produce a 30-piece collection.

She used the signatures of Mehmet the Conqueror and Suleyman the Magnificent, among others. The designs also feature Swarovski crystals, chiffon and draping as well as the use of red and beige emphasizing the glory of the Ottomans.

Ms. Taciroglu's creations are reminiscent of clothes worn during the Ottoman Empire, which lasted for 600 years and acted as an important geographical, cultural, political and social bridge between the East and the West. Her collections reflect the historical heritage left by the Ottoman Empire to modern day Turkey.

After earning a degree in interior design at Mimar Sinan University in Istanbul, Nedret Taciroglu entered the fashion industry as a model in 1976, and few years later founded Nedo Leather, where she worked designing, producing and exporting fine leather garments to clients in Paris, New York, Dallas and Houston.

Her loyal clientele numbers in the thousands around the world and she was proud to create an 18-piece collection for former First Lady Nancy Reagan.

In early 2002, with the encouragement of many friends in the fashion business, Ms. Taciroglu launched Nedo Collection, which quickly came to be appreciated by international buyers for its special fabrics and accessories.

She is the only Turkish designer to stage her own show in Milan for three consecutive years, where she received rave reviews.

Nedo Collection is targeted at the elegant, confident, well-traveled and successful woman. Fabrics are predominantly fine all-natural wools, cottons and silks made in Turkey.

Nedo Weekend is a complimentary line of casual wear consisting of linen suits, sporty shorts, bottoms, and jeans with a target customer that appreciates comfortable and elegant clothes for less formal occasions. Ms. Taciroglu also designs home accessories.

Couture Fashion Week is a multi-day event showcasing couture and luxury fashion. It also includes exhibits of luxury brands and fine art as well as world-class entertainment and receptions.

The event is held in top venues in New York City, Palm Beach, Florida and otherselected cities and is attended by upscale consumers, invited VIPs, the press and high-end store buyers. Couture Fashion Week offers unique branding opportunities for luxury products and services.
