The design duo Cimen Bachri and Derya Issever founded their label ISSEVER BAHRI in 2010 in Berlin, after having gathered experiences working for different labels in Berlin and London. Their spring/summer 2011 debut collection was launched during the Berlin fashion fair PREMIUM where the label was awarded the annually initiated PREMIUM ‘Young Designers Award’. With their third collection, the two HTW (University of Applied Scien- ces) graduates won 2nd in the ‘Start Your Fashion Business Award’ 2011. ISSEVER BAHRI stands for innovative fashion with an exceptional concept, focusing on the synergy of traditional craftsmanship and contemporary de- sign. The designers translate classic approaches to handcrafted techniques, materials and pattern cutting accordingly to each collection concept. The traditions of their origins, Greece and Turkey, prove to be a huge inspiration for Derya Issever and Cimen Bachri which appears in the aesthetic of their eclectic creations. The experimental approach to their collections is combined with wearability, longevity and a high standard of quality in materials and workmanship.
