After a season’s break, during which she created a fashion show for Volkswagen in Beijing, Frida Weyer came back to the runway enriched by a further international experience in Turkey. Thanks to a project with the Office of Culture at the Turkish Embassy, the Berlin designer made frequent visits to Istanbul, and not only absorbed Ottoman inspiration but made it her own. Exploded tile prints were worked to beautiful effect on a slew of dresses in silk organdy, the patterns and scales as varied as the original design source. Tile patterns also showed up in crewel-embroidered jackets, appliquéd cardigans, brocade Hot Pants, embroidered lace dresses and gowns, even a leather tote bag. Weyer managed to steer clear of folkloric clichés, parading sophisticated daywear as well as her popular party dresses.
