Biography Back to top

Habibe Acikgoz has gathered some of the inspiration for her garments from the Ottoman Empire where she was interested in the pleating and gathering style in their clothing. She incorporates these styles in her pieces as well as designing them to a loose, modest fitting.

Habibe takes pride in creating clothing that is all inclusive and also tailoring to plus sized women. Habibe enjoys including pockets in her pieces and using natural fabrics/materials such as linen and silk as it is important to her that her clothing is breathable and kind to the skin.
