In a few days, our past exhibition Stephen Jones & The Accent of Fashion opens in Istanbul. Creative visionary Demet Muftuoglu (VAKKO) has joined forces with Liberatum and MoMu to bring the Stephen Jones retrospective to the VAKKO Fashion Centre in Istanbul, from April 8th until June 8th 2011.

The exhibition is particularly significant for VAKKO as Vitali Hakko himself created VAKKO in 1934 after having started a millinery shop. Today, under Cem Hakko’s leadership Vakko has established itself as Turkey’s leading luxury fashion house. In a specially constricted pavillion at the Vakko Fashion Centre where the hats will be displayed, there will also be a special section on Turkey and the Orient as an influence on Stephen Jones’ work.
