Umit Benan Uomo Milano Primavera Estate 2014
"The spontaneous Turkish designer talks Basquiat, fuck ups and the Istanbul riots."
There were a lot of little details in the show that you guys wouldn’t understand, but it was really a political message. Basically, the government is saying our national drink is not rakı (an anise-flavoured spirit), which it has been for centuries. Instead they say it is ayran, which is a yoghurt drink. That’s why I came out with ayran in my hand, going, ‘Cheers to Atatürk, cheers to my father, cheers to who I am.’ This is who we are and you guys are trying to take something away from us.
