Goodbye to All That: Rifat Ozbek

Rifat Ozbek said goodbye to the fashion designer life for a farm in Turkey and a store called Yastik.  Yastik which means cushion in Turkish sells pillows made from new and antique  textiles sourced in Turkey and Central Asia, filled with down and most amazing of all: lavendar.

But once upon a time there was a boy born in Turkey, who moved to London, designed clothing inspired by Africa and India.  In 1997 he showed his first collection in New York which was called 'White Voodoo'.

Naomi Campbell wore this heavily beaded, heavily symbolic, all very mysterious jacket/cardigan with cut out shoulders.  Too too amazing don't you think?!

1998 Rifat Ozbek 'White Voodoo' Collection beaded jacket.  Size 4.
