This week I attended Istanbul’s Spring/Summer Fashion Week. Being my first time to Turkey, I was eager to see what was on the streets and the runways of Istanbul. In addition to the city hosting over twenty shows, the Istanbul Modern mounted two fashion-centric exhibitions; one for Hussein Chalayan entitled 1994-2010 and the other called Istanbul Contrast, a selection of works from Dice Kayek’s Gold Label line. Both exhibitions are aptly timed as the city has been named the European Cultural Capital for 2010.

Click through the slide show above for a look at a few of my favorite moments from Istanbul.
