‘Turkey will excel through design, not contract manufacturing’
President Ekrem Demirtaş reminded that the top three contestants were from Izmir Economics in 2016 contest. Demirtaş said, “The first fashion and design department of Turkey was established within Izmir University of Economics at the same time when the university was established. We told at the time that contract manufacturing wouldn’t get Turkey anywhere, that we needed to create our own fashion, own brand, own designs, and we were going to train students who would be able to achieve this. It has been 16 years since then. Our students make ranks at Bridal Design Contest. Last year our students made us proud by achieving first, second, and third place, and this year, second and third place are also from our University. 5 out of 15 finalists are from Izmir University of Economics. Success of our students reveals the quality of education at IUE.”
‘Students have their own brands now’
President Demirtaş stated that IUE Fashion Designers took part at the contest with their own brands and reflected the power of design onto the sector. Demirtaş said, “Izmir is currently undertaking 70% of bridal export in Turkey. This is major. Of course we need to increase its scale and capacity. We will carry the sector further with students studying fashion design who shape the future of fashion”.
President Demirtaş also attended the performance fashion show titled “Düş Bahçesi (Dreamland)”, a 28-piece collection of Tuğçe Görgülü, student at IUE Faculty of Fine Arts and Design, Department of Fashion and Textile Design, winner of last year’s contest.
