The Collection is a ballad composed by the designer, Neslisah Yilmaz, to pay homage to the lands where it all started. The Sumerian civilization of Mesopotamia stared developing advanced techniques in the art of weaving during the third millennium of BCE.

Bas-reliefs of Sumerian civilization show figures wearing skirts and dresses composed of woven cloth and tufted fabrics. The wrapped and draped clothes have influenced

the dress of Greeks and Egyptians. Inspired by the chic Sumerian royalty, the designer used the materials and top-level workmanship of the same lands creating Legend Reborn – Sumerian royalty on the catwalk of London Fashion Week.

As a line of the ballad, the recycled fabrics used in the collection would mean the rebirth of thousands of PET bottles collected from the ocean. The designer hopes that the sustainability efforts will enable many generations to enjoy legends reborn through many millennia.
