What is freedom? Sometimes people believe if they have a new job they will be happy… Or if they purchase a new dress or shoes… Or if a particular person they love, will fall in love in return, you will be happy…
Although this is not what freedom is. Freedom is what we’re not expecting… The concept, expressed in that word freedom remains unclear. If we delve into the heart of that word, there will be almost nothing left. Before you seek freedom, you must assume that anything has this quality, called freedom, meaning that he can act according to his own free choice. Hakan Akkaya debut during New York Fashion Week unveils his concept about freedom of thoughts.
Hakan Akkaya is questioning whether people can or cannot live and think “as free as they want’’ regardless of their religion, race, language or sex. Such as The freedom people have? What’s real freedom? Or a so-called one?
Hakan Akkaya emphasized “Sporty Couture” in masculine and feminine silhouettes using black and white lined fabrics. While black is dominating the collection, the designer attracted extreme interest in the color black for two other collections he presented during İstanbul Fashion Week, Spring Summer 2013 and Autumn Winter 2014 both named “Men In Black” featuring menswear and womenwear pieces.
The acclaimed Turkish designer, designs for both men and women with the brand HAKAN AKKAYA, along with designing pret-a-porter products. For the fall winter 2017 collection the designer used plenty of zips, frill details, velvets, denim and metallic Seemed fabrics that united in harmony with elegance.
