Designer Koral Sagular’s wildly flamboyant collections have seen him labeled the enfant-terrible of Istanbul’s burgeoning fashion scene. His graduate collection, Huis Clois, was named after the existentialist play by French philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre, and paired BDSM-inspired jewelry with impeccable corsetry, while other offerings have seen pieces combining 1930’s Turkish Tangos, Lucha Libre imagery, and Baroque tastes’ sexually charged nature. Blurring traditional gender lines in his ornate corsets, devilish face masks, and poetıc silhouettes, Sagular’s designs have been published on national and international magazines like Vogue Italia, Dazed and Marie Claire. Sagular’s art has also been picked up by Gucci under the brand’s 2015 artist collaboration project and reached a large audience that includes RuPaul’s Drag Race champions like Violet Chachki and Aquaria.
