2014-02-06 DICE KAYEK

From Tami

Continuing my London prep…The V&A will be exhibiting the finalists for The Jameel Prize, an international award for contemporary art and design inspired by Islamic tradition. The winner of this years prize is Dice Kayek a Turkish fashion label established by sisters Ece and Ayşe Ege. The judges felt that their collection ‘Istanbul Contrast’ evokes Istanbul’s architectural and artistic heritage and demonstrates how vibrant and creative Islamic traditions continue to be today. Using the structural elements of garments (the stay, crinoline frames, pleating) they created a fashion drawn from architectural and sartorial history of the ottoman empire.  Once again the textile is migrating and transforming the historic into the present and beyond. The Patron of the Jameel Prize is the award-winning architect Zaha Hadid.  Women’s work is never done…
