Turkish women dress differently, according to a new study by the National Women’s Institute of Turkey (YUM) which is aiming to “enhance and empower” the region’s burgeoning fashion industry.
“The results are a great proof that women’s fashion is very much alive in Turkey,” said YUM CEO, Yerevan-based Mert Alayyan, adding that it has been difficult to find clothing in Turkey that “cares about the rights of women and the gender equality”.
The findings of the YUM-funded study come in the wake of Turkey’s recent crackdown on female bloggers, who were accused of defaming the government and inciting hatred against its political enemies.
The crackdown on social media, which has led to thousands of arrests, harassment and threats, has led some to speculate that the crackdown on Turkish fashion could also be aimed at female fashion bloggers.
“Women are a huge part of our society and their fashion is so important to us, and to our future,” Yum CEO Mert said.
The report, entitled “The Future of Turkish Fashion: A Woman’s Guide to the Future”, was launched by YUM last month and aims to improve the country’s image among women and empower women. “
It has a big impact on the economy and people’s livelihoods.”

“This report was launched as a response to the recent social media crackdown against the female fashion community and the social media campaigns against women in general,” said Mert.
“People have been feeling threatened by the way women dress, and we need to show women that fashion is not a political issue.”
To promote the report, YUM has launched an online campaign called “Turkish Fashion” where people can learn about women’s culture, fashion and fashion trends.
“What I found most important is that this is a country with a rich history of women’s empowerment, and this is also a country that is very tolerant of other cultures,” said Alaykan.
The report says there are many aspects of women wearing traditional Turkish dress, such as long hair and embroidered hats, which are considered feminine and also considered masculine, in contrast to the more Western-styled dress seen in other countries.
“I think it is important for us to highlight the way we dress in Turkey and show that we don’t have to be afraid to be who we are,” said Tapan Kacal, an international fashion designer and founder of the fashion design studio Zoya Studio, which is based in Istanbul.
“When you see the styles that we wear, and you see how we’re seen, it can make a difference for women and their self-esteem,” she added.
Yum has also created a YouTube channel called “The Turkish Woman” which has been watching its audience and has amassed more than 2 million subscribers.
“There is a lot of passion and a lot more understanding and understanding about women in the fashion world,” said Kacel.
“They see how much the world has changed over the past 15 years, and how the fashion scene has changed as well.”
The fashion industry in Turkey has been booming over the last decade, with a population of about 30 million and an estimated $3 trillion in global exports.
The country also has a strong female population, which, according the UN, is the largest in the world.
