Spring Summer 2022 sees the re-introduction of the mediterranean retro-riviera mood, which has become a signature style of the Istanbul-based coctail and evening wear designer. Founder and Creative Director, Gozde Arig, who trained under Emilia Wickstead after graduating from London College of Fashion, empowers women with her contemporary, feminine and effortless designs. Her dresses use colour and shaping to enhance and celebrate the female form, making the wearer feel good inside and out.
Arig comments, ''This season, I was inspired by various modern art cultural moments, including abstract and Bauhaus. All things concidered, I was in a positive and optimistic frame of mind during the design process and really wanted to celebrate artists who rebel and continuously contribute to the art scene.''
These references are undeniably present throughout the SS22 collection with strong, angular, cut-out detailing featuring alongside contrasting block colours.
Filiarmi was founded in March 2020 by Gozde Arig who inherited her creative nature from her parents, with her father being an international award-winning caricaturist and her mother owning a textile company. Growing up in such a creative environment, Gozde developed a passion for art and design at a young age. In 2011 Gozde graduated from London College of Fashion and went on to train under Emilia Wickstead and Charles Anastase. Using this experience to hone her skills, she decided to go out on her own and launch her own brand.
