Bora Aksu has been busy working away on the costumes for the opera piece Werther prior to his London Fashion Week show and the arts were something that had rubbed off on him – ballet becoming his focus this season. “I wanted to create something so light and weightless but at the same time not too nostalgic. But current in a new Bora way.” And what way was that? “Transparency,” the designer told us. It was light, it was pretty and everything we expect Bora to be but there was a freshness here too – through a tight white and blue palette, sheer layers and an edited use of crochet.
