Yet another insanely cool designer has been added to the bill for LGN Events' A La Mode show (17th-18th September 2010)
In a mammoth catwalk show, the Hamburg based designer will be showing forty looks, highlighting his innovative passion for luxury design.
Fashion clearly runs in the blood of the half Turkish, half German designer, as Koca hails from a line of successful tailors. Becoming adept in design from a young age, Koca began his fashion studies at the highly regarded Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Arts. Here, he was able to increase his practical skills while gaining original thought, through the Academy’s focus on encouraging experimentation; skills which Koca has entwined in his work today.
First thrown into the limelight when his debut collection was shown at the 2009 Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Berlin, designer Hakan is known for his eclectic style. He draws on his own influences, past eras and foreign cultures, whilst managing to provide a subtle hint of sensuality. Driven by his teaching at the Royal Academy, Koca strives to constantly reinvent the new, through fragmentation and innovative form. The exploration of femininity is also central to his work.
A cultural, colourful mesh of fragments and patterns, beautifully created using a variety of techniques such as draping, ruffling, fringing and braiding, Koca’s designs come alive through endless textures; cashmere, silk, leather. A woman wearing a Koca piece will not fail to be impressed, being made to feel feminine and beautiful. With collections that frequently amaze, the Alan Xan Koca label combines eclectic and sensuous style with the love of changing art into wearable pieces for everyday life.
Koca will be showcasing in an exclusive catwalk show at London’s Charing Cross Hotel on Saturday 18th September from 1pm. Be the first to see this exquisite Spring Summer 2011 range at this off-schedule London Fashion Week soiree. Alan Xan Koca - the label to watch this September!
