Fashion designer Nihan Buruk represents an avant-garde style. One that sheds light on the dark side of the world… Inspired by today’s real problems, Nihan is bold enough to outfit the human body with the issue itself.
Hers is a utopian world that has emerged from an up-rise as she delves into contemporary issues through a sombre perspective whilst questioning the future. Her designs are not for those who conform in de-facto criteria. Instead, they offer creative and enticing alternatives for individuals seeking something beyond normal. Functionality is always in the foreground… Forms are constructed around the issue specific to the collection.
Each collection is a novel quest aiming for higher than its predecessor. Each piece brings out high self-esteem and a sense of power.
Nihan Buruk, creator of St.NIAN, founded her first namesake atelier in Çukurcuma in 2008 after graduating from Yeditepe University, Fashion and Textile Design in 2007.
In addition to fashion design, she also put her heart and soul into decoration as she believes that a woman’s choice in these two areas is the key revealing factor in her life and style. Her enthusiasm in both continued.
She moved her brand to Nişantaşı in 2010 and continued working both in her atelier and shop.
Aiming to raise awareness with the growing accessibility of fashion, the designer has preferred to adopt social issues in every collection of hers since her very first fashion show in 2011.
Adding a brand new menswear collection to her women’s ready to wear designs, she made a brilliant appearance at London Fashion Week in 2014. Two years later, in 2016 she was again on stage at Berlin Fashion Week with her breakthrough menswear designs.
