A Designer You'll Want to Watch


Asli Guler is an up and coming designer to watch. Based in Instabul, Asli has worked for quite a few labels. She was the manufacturer's design director for Marks & Spencer and Espirit. She has also designed for several retail labels, including Topshop, Express, Victoria's Secret and Mexx.

Asli just recently started her own label; Asli Guler. I'd call her style urban vintage. She is strongly influenced by the lady-like details of the twenties, often with lace details that remind me of brooches.

The urban part comes from the draping ... the modern jersey silhouettes are totally night-out-worthy. Visit her site at: www.asliguler.com
