Turkish-American designer Eda Yorulmazoğlu crafts wild costumes, with both distinct body of works and individual creatures as part of her repertoire. Part-fashion designer, part-textile artist, she navigates several spheres, all carrying an absurdism and vibrancy bolstered by bringing them out into the public.
“Yorulmazoğlu’s goal is to distract people from their everyday lives, whether things are shitty or not, and bring them back to a time of innocence and purity,” a statement says. “Yorulmazoglu gives soul and life to each creature and gives them an opportunity to live in our world. The world that Yorulmazoglu is trying to portray is not a physical place, they are not intended to live in one place. They are meant to be everywhere. The creatures are not intended to blend in to our world, but more so to teach people that it is okay not to fit in and there is other types of beauty, to take life less seriously, and to relive their childhood as an adult.”
