Born in Istanbul in 1976, Erkan Coruh has always loved fashion. After earning a degree in Fashion Design at the Fine Arts Academy, Istanbul, in 2003, he worked in a traditional couturier office, where he began experimenting with tailoring. Erkan won Turkey’s Young Designer of the Year award in 2004 and the IAF International Designer Award in 2005.
Following his success in Turkey, Erkan went on to earn a Master in Fashion Design at Domus Academy in Milan in 2005. After graduation, he went straight into the world of fashion, where he developed his international vision and refined his design skills. For the next four years, Erkan worked in Milan for several cutting-edge Italian brands.
In 2009, he started to develop his ideas under the brand Erkan Coruh with a team in his atelier, which also collaborated with artists. In March 2010, he launched his first Autumn/Winter 2010 men’s and women’s wear start-up collection, The Men & Women of Allah, in Milan. His second collection, Shirin, was presented at Rome Fashion Week at the Alta Roma and Vogue Italia Who’s On Next Competition, where he was selected as the winner for the Women’s Ready-to-Wear portion of the competition.
