(CUL) TURKISH FASHION DESIGNER DISPLAYS HER NEW COLLECTION IN NEW YORK.
Fashion designers and critics, Turkish and foreign diplomats including Turkish Consul General in New York Mehmer Samsar, journalists and renowned names watched Taciroglu's fashion show at the Starlight Roof of the Waldorf Astoria Hotel.
Taciroglu's 2011 winter collection is composed of 32 pieces including elegant mini and maxi, silk, satin and chiffon dresses embroidered with lace and geometrical shapes.
Taciroglu made her first USA debut during New York's Couture Fashion Week in September 2008 with a collection entitled "Istanbul: The City of the Sultans."
After earning a degree in interior design at the Mimar Sinan University in Istanbul, Taciroglu entered the fashion industry as a model in 1976, and few years later founded Nedo Leather, where she worked designing, producing and exporting fine leather garments to clients in Paris, New York, Dallas and Houston.
Her loyal clientele numbers in the thousands around the world and she was proud to create an 18-piece collection for former First Lady Nancy Reagan. In early 2002, with the encouragement of many friends in the fashion business, Taciroglu launched Nedo Collection, which quickly came to be appreciated by international buyers for its special fabrics and accessories. She is the only Turkish designer to stage her own show in Milan for three consecutive years, where she received rave reviews.
Nedo Collection is targeted at the elegant, confident, well-traveled and successful woman. Fabrics are predominantly fine all-natural wools, cottons and silks made in Turkey. Nedo Weekend is a complimentary line of casual wear consisting of linen suits, sporty shorts, bottoms, and jeans with a target customer that appreciates comfortable and elegant clothes for less formal occasions. Taciroglu also designs home accessories.
