Serkan Cura: a self-made fashion designer

Nov 28, 14 Serkan Cura: a self-made fashion designer

The world of fashion is a unique world and get accepted to it one must possess a remarkable talent and put a lot of effort. And at the last Haute Couture fashion week we have discovered a young and very gifted designer we want to tell you about.

Serkan Cure is a designer that “made himself”. In addition to his professional experience in the couture and pret-a-porter ateliers of Paris, Serkan Cura studied fashion design at the Royal Academy of Antwerp in 2007, wherein the young designer was free to discover his most fantastic creative dreams. Serkan’s graduate collection explored absurdist tone-on-tone silhouettes with oversized structured jackets or full skirts, realized in a multitude of handcrafted textures. At the end of his studies, Serkan was accepted by the Parisian fashion house Jean Paul Gaultier, where he worked in the design atelier for four years “carrying out the wishes of the genius of fashion”.

In 2012, he decided to create his own Parisian fashion house where exceptional techniques are being used. This Belgian designer of Turkish origin is specialized in the unique techniques of feather applique where he can apply his most fantastic creative dreams.

In 2013, he showed for the first time his Couture collection during the Paris Fashion Week and also worked in parallel on the Victoria’s Secret show dressing supermodels such as Candice Swanepoel.

In 2014, he showed as a guest member of the Chambre Syndicale in the Official Paris Fashion Couture Week and he will continue is collaboration with Victoria’s Secret creating structure for Karlie Kloss and other supermodels in London next November.
