EMEL MELIKE BAKICI
I have been working as a freelance fashion, accessories designer and stylist in London. I studied MA Fashion Design and Technology Womenswear at UAL London College of Fashion with a full scholarship granted by the Ministry of Economics Turkey.
I improved my creative skills with a wide rangeof creative luxury design and techniques in innovative fashion; drawing, constructing and developing structures. During the MA course, I prepared a fur collaboration project with Fendi where I won the competition as a winner.
I worked for the Andam Awarded fashion designer Hakan Yildirim, ’HAKAAN’ and Hakaan Yıldırım brands in 2011-2015. The labels both participated in London and Paris Fashion Weeks.
I recently created and launched my Printed Silk Accessories luxury line based in London to manifest my own artwork story.
