Missoni Spring 2010ISTANBUL, Oct 23, 2009 / FW/ — Fashionable Istanbul has just become more “fashionable” with Missoni among the names of the designers showing during the Turkish capital’s first event devoted to fashion.

Slated from Oct 23 – 25, 2009, Missoni is scheduled to the grand finale for the three-day fashion extravaganza with a fashion show offering the Turkish market a preview of the Summer 2010 collection.

Unveiled in Milan last month, the Missoni Spring / Summer 2010 collection is one of seemingly simple construction that highlights rich materials, creating super-slim, sensual and feminine forms; layered and veiled with sheer duster coats.

Loose mesh and embroidered origami with three-dimensional weaves, lace, knots, openwork and double fringes are the mementos of Missoni’s sweeping imagination.

Angela Missoni will be at the event with her daughter Margherita, the brand ambassador.

Missoni joins Roberto Cavalli, Gianfranco Ferré, Salvatore Ferragamo and Vivienne Westwood on the impressive list of international designers showing in Istanbul.
