EXEMPLAR BY Erdi Bal & Cansu Bal

EXEMPLAR’S notion on Fashion is rooted from an architectural standpoint. They view the relationship we possess between fashion & architecture is very much alike, as both these disciplines provide us with protection, privacy, comfort & insulation, which is manifested through contrasting mediums. the garments exemplar™ create are extensions of the built environment around them. EXEMPLAR™ are emulating their learnings from architecture and are actualizing it in the fashion realm.
