Zeynep launched the Zeynep Kartal brand beginning of 2013, following more than twenty years of experience in the fashion industry in a variety of areas including textile, design, production and marketing.
Zeynep Kartal has now made a splash in the celebrity-filled red carpets of the UK, and wowing the catwalks of London’s Fashion Week with her elegant silhouettes and modern lines sought after by a growing number of American & British celebrities including Whitney Port, Coleen Rooney, Pixie Lott, Amanda Holden, Marina and The Diamonds, Michelle Keegan, Cheryl Cole and Lady Gaga.
For Nathan, contemporary fashion can focus too much on the short-term season-to-season. But he is designing products that are
timeless in style and function.
“Being a product designer rather than a fashion designer made BODA what it is. The jackets are not fashion items it’s about making the best product. Every little detail to me is calculated with a lot of thought behind it.” BODA is about pieces you want, products that last. There’s an earnest pride in everything Nathan designs and guides to fruition. With only so much time on Earth, Nathan is making the most of his.
“I knew exactly what I wanted but I couldn’t find it. Struggling to find that ‘perfect dress’ every time I had an event or special occasion.
Eventually, I decided to start designing my own dresses. I wanted to create elegant evening wear for women across the world, who just like me were looking for something special to wear which made them look and feel amazing.
I traveled the world to source the highest quality, most wearable, luxurious fabrics and began designing for women of all shapes and sizes. I concentrated on the perfect cuts to create the best silhouette to flatter a woman’s figure, whilst incorporating a Middle Eastern twist from my Lebanese roots.”
