    EFD students at the Topkapi Palace in Istanbul

The University travel bursary gave the students the opportunity to gather original inspiration for their final collections. Each student has used some element of the Istanbul culture to inspire unique design ideas and create original garments, from digital prints taken from the Topkapi palace’s rich interior and then sourcing fabrics from the wonderful markets.

‘It was a fantastic opportunity for us to be able to gather so much first hand, original inspiration leading into our final collections, and Istanbul was a perfect choice as it is where the East meets the West with so many rich cultural elements to see.’
