~~~~~~ Past to Present, Tradition to Fashion (I) ~~~~~~
Traditional Turkish Women Headdresses, veils, belts, and folk costumes have been decorated with many design and color variations for centuries. Nowadays, famous Turkish fashion-houses apply traditional Turkish art to fashion in order to create elegance and attract international attention. One of the reasons why these costumes are in demand is that they reflect both the tradition of the seraglio and the folklore. Another reason is beauty and variety of the textile.
The first greeting to Turkish fashion comes from The Seraglio, from the "gülbahçeli bindalli" (purple velvet embroidered with silver thread) and "caftans" (embroidered with gold and silver thread).
The dress combines Turkish folk culture with modern styling.
