Nihan Altunta? Designs
I have always had a passion for creating and designing. I never liked pattern books or reproducing brand sweaters. I would design authentic knitwear by improvising with needles, sometimes not even knowing what the result would be. So I’ve realized that crafting was my lifelong passion. The appreciation and approval from so many over the years, for all of my hard work is the basis of my motivation to improve myself in this field. I love working with my team as we develop the brand. I can say that professional support allows me much more time for creativity.
Today, thanks to the internet I have lots of international customers & friends. By time, all the great and supporting e-mails that I get every day, made me dream a new fashion brand called “Nihan Altuntas”. This support encourages me for bigger steps with my future plans. I’m thrilled with the idea that somewhere in the world, someone is actually warmer, in a woolen sweater designed and knitted entirely by my hands. I may knit in a traditional way like grandmothers do. It allows my designs to have a very personal touch. But I don’t like my designs to have that “Hand knit” look. I feel so happy when people ask my customers, “Where did you buy this sweater?” rather than “Did you knit the sweater by yourself?”. I feel very delighted when I hear how many people ask my customers that question. I believe, it really shows the quality of Nihan Altunta? designs.
Living in a hectic and very dynamic metropolitan area; everybody is in a hurry and time is of high importance. Generally, when you have an evening planned after work, we don’t always have enough time to go back home to change. I think, living a city life affects my style; I mean you can save time because, Nihan Altunta? designs are also wearable for any occasion.
I love exaggerated forms; for example not to knit something as a collar but a collar in a different form. As a result, sophisticated sculptural silhouettes also become comfortable and wearable in ordinary day knitwear’s. During both creation and knitting the most important thing for me, and each design would be unique and authentic. If I see any similarities between my work and any other designs I stop work immediately. At this point, I show no mercy to my work because people trust me. Thus, they turn my authentic designs into their own exclusive apparel; by selecting their own color and material taste.
