The “Artistic Fashion Show” held on the 136 meters giant catwalk at the Arsenal International Art and Culture Center has made its name among the biggest fashion events held in Ukraine. Cihan Nacar, who joined from Turkey, was the fashion designer who made his mark on the beautiful atmosphere offered by the 40-person Ukrainian Symphony Orchestra, which performed live at Ukraine Fashion Week, which also met art lovers in digital media.
Designer Cihan Nacar held the promotional fashion show of his Spring-Summer creation “Aura” at Ukraine Fashion Week. Deniz Akkaya, who took to the catwalk at the opening and closing of the 4-day Fashion summit, received a full note from all fashion lovers with his “Aura” collection. Because Deniz Akkaya’s strong stance is integrated with the Aura collection, which is a very romantic and calm story at its core. Akkaya, who carried large voluminous forms and three-dimensional clothes with her perfect body, carried the fairy tale and very naive of the creation to the catwalk.
When the project came up, Cihan Nacar had to make his choice expertly, as a model from Turkey would join. Nacar preferred Akkaya because he thought they would work in harmony with their long-standing friendship and professional business relationship. Apparently, she has done a good job that will not leave Cihan Nacar and his team alone in the concept of an “Artistic Fashion Show”, where they will participate for the first time abroad and work with a completely foreign team.
The presentation of Aura creation in Turkey was made in digital format in the charming atmosphere of Tophane-I Amire within the scope of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. At its opening and closing, the world-famous model Tülin Şahin walked the catwalk. The combination of the fairytale fiction of the creation with the unique charm of Tülin Şahin increased the appeal of the fashion show. Although it was a different experience for Cihan Nacar and his team, he was successful in passing the Aura’s atmosphere and story spirit to the audience by going through a completely digital fiction
It is necessary to recognize that the education and equipment process that extends from Adana to Spain also has its share in this success of the fashion designer Cihan Nacar. He started his education at the textile and fashion design department of the Faculty of Fine Arts of Çukurova University and continued at the Spanish University Politecnica de Valencia and received a master’s degree in Fashion Fesign Fepartment of the Faculty of Fine Arts of Marmara University. At the heart of his understanding of fashion, which he does not separate from art, is the source of combining contrasts and acquiring the ability to find midpoints; the training he receives from different cultures and unique disciplines.
Nacar’s career continued in Istanbul after his design training in Spain, consulting the most important beachwear, swimwear brands in the sector. Due to the geographical location of Turkey, the beaches it has are very favorable for the creation of local beachwear designs. Cihan Nacar believes that beachwear is an industry that is in demand all year round.
Indeed, beachwear is not only on the beach in summer, but also in the pool, sauna, in our foreign trips or in our daily routine in the winter. In 2012, when the famous designer founded the brand “Cihan Nacar, Beachwear”, he set out with the idea of changing the perception in people’s minds that ‘swimwear is only worn in the sea’. He began to prepare products for women who want to combine their creations with outdoor clothing designs and carry them to daily life.
