Clothing made of hair and 'horon' (folk dance) Fashion designer Deniz Berdan presented her new collection under the DB Berdan brand yesterday with 30 pieces of extraordinary designs and unique style. The most attractive piece of the collection is the dress made from hair strands. The total length of the hair strands would measure around 1,500 kilometers if put end-to-end. A joint product with L'Oreal, the dress is made using hair from 60 individuals and 64,000 milliliters of hair conditioner.
Berdan said it took one week only to prepared this dress and that the collection was showcased in Paris and London. This was the first Turkey debut for her collection. With only a few minutes left before the show, Berdan looked calm backstage. "While preparing the collection, the starting point was the folk dance 'horon,' which has an important place in the Black Sea culture. The patterns were made by means of collage and drawing. The background music of the show includes songs from the Black Sea region. It took a few days to select the background music and DJ Fatiş made the arrangements," Berdan said. Berdan's collection was no doubt the most anticipated.
