ISTANBUL — Istanbul’s inaugural fashion week, due to be held in mid-May, has been postponed until October in a bid by the main Turkish city to gain a place in the biannual international catwalk circuit and lure foreign buyers.
"We want to get on the international timetable after Milan and Paris so we need to show our collections around the time they do — Turkish designers have great potential and if we think big, get organized and act with courage, I believe we can do this," events organizer and model agent Nelih Akay, who originally conceived the idea, told WWD. "The shows will now take place on Oct. 13-17."
