Turkish-French designer Ece Ege has revealed her latest collection, Woven Tales, at the Paris Fashion Week.

The creative director of Dice Kayek, the fashion house she founded with her sister Ayşe in 1992, showed off their spring 2016 collection at the Musée des Arts Decoratifs, based in the Louvre.

Ege said she wanted her collection to resemble an image in the mind and said it had been inspired by characters such as Peter Pan.

She said the collection was the result of six months of hard work as her team of 20 produced a couture collection in wool flannel, organza silk mikado, sateen and velvet.      

Dice Kayek, a member of the Prêt-à-Porter and Couture Federation, is the first Turkish brand to take part in Paris’ official couture show.

Ege, who was trained in Paris, received France’s prestigious Femme en Or award for successful women in 2003.
