Artisan fashion designer Zuhal Kuvan-Mills ultra eco friendly label Green Embassy launched Vancouver Fashion Week Wednesday evening with her breathtaking haute couture art designs, one of the top style trends for spring summer.
“I think of fashion as an artist . . . the runway is my gallery” stated Zuhal Kuvan-Mills in a interview with StyleDrama. With a rather diverse background, she was trained in Turkey as a veterinarian surgeon, a former teacher in the UK and now an Australian contemporary artist.
Wearable art fashions were first introduced on the Paris and Milan runways for spring summer 2014 by Chanel, Dior and Prada, so we now include Green Embassy Australia’s first internationally recognized organically certified fashion label on the cutting edge of this new style trend.
Titled Earth Series, she showcased 16 outfits on the runway at Vancouver Fashion Week as her one of a kind fashions are minimalist while dramatic and only uses 100% certified organic merino, silk and Australian alpaca raised on her own farm in Perth.
As a designer, Zuhal Kuvan-Mills has been heavily inspired by ancient textile making techniques such as hand spinning and kitted fibers, weaving, felting, stitching, embroidery to eco-dyed fabrics with Eucalyptus leaves.
“My hands have touched everything which makes every garment haute-couture and unlike any other,” said Zuhal Kuvan-Mills.
What I loved about her wearable art pieces is that they are full of earthly abstract shapes and drawings, plus with the addition of tulle she brings a playful sexiness.
You can still see her fabulous art designs up close as she has a booth at Vancouver Fashion Week, 2nd floor this Thursday and Friday from 4:30 – 9 pm.
