Born in Istanbul, Turkey, Erkan Çoruh is a fashion designer that puts more into his collections than just clothes. By reinventing the traditional burqa, Çoruh explores themes of equality, repression, freedom, religion and politics. His latest collection called 'The Men & Women of Allah,' fused Islam and the West in the creation of an avant-garde collection that bends all the rules.

How does Erkan Çoruh conceive of the field that he has committed his life to? "Fashion is an individual journey through creativity to achieve sophisticated beauty," muses the award-winning designer.
