Tarik Ediz

Tarik Ediz

Appealing to chic, glamorous and sexy women this label produces gowns in Istanbul under the watchful eye of the designer himself. The dresses are made with exclusively designed French lace and exquisite fabrics including crepe, chiffon, satin and taffeta but it is the beadwork that really sets this label aside, with 100% handmade embroidery and beautiful crystal and pearl beadwork that stuns under any light. Paige, a silk, tulle and hand beaded pearl lace gown, has been the favourite of retailers so far this year alongside a figure hugging two piece that shows off the female form to perfection. The UK market is proving strong for Tarik Ediz with 50 stockists in across the UK and Ireland enticed by the Turkish craftsmanship.  Prices across Tarik Ediz and Tarik Ediz White range from $850 to $1,600.
