Dilara Findikoglu Created A ‘Femme Vortex’ for F/W 24

What does fashion look like with men uninvolved? Designer Dilara Findikoglu posed the question when thinking about her latest Femme Vortex collection, displayed last night. After taking a pause last season from the show calendar, Findikoglu was in a more restorative place for A/W 24 season and thusly decided to create an alternative reality where toxic masculinity and gender norms could not touch. The banality of office wear was uprooted as familiar pinstripes were carved and warped by tulle corsetry and grommeted leather suggested an even more kinkier approach, tying things up with laced-up details. Throughout, Findikoglu expanded on past signatures she has come to been known for, whether it was look 35’s white feathered look worn by Maartje Convens or look 32’s heavy metal conception that Rabina brought to life. Findikoglu’s characters were further aided by movement director Pat Boguslawski, who created the essence of every titled look that the Madeleine Østlie-led cast took on. Opener Hari Nef, who wore an impressive Findikoglu look during her press run for Barbie, returned the favor as she started a procession of top faces like Kai Isaiah Jamal, Paul Hameline, Hunter Pifer, Richie Shazam, and Top 50 closer, Aweng Chuol. With exclusive images by Melodie Jeng, take a look behind the scenes of all the beautiful madness below.
