Dresscholic, Istanbul: A dress for every occasion


Ever found yourself in a situation where you desperately need a dress for that oh so important event, but frustrated that your choice of dresses is limited? Even if you find a potential dress, your breasts don’t quite fill it, or the length is just not right, or 20% of the crowd is most likely to have seen that dress on their very same dress hunt?

I know how you feel. Luckily I now shop in Istanbul and have found a boutique that makes one off dresses for dresscholic girls. If you want heads to turn, I am certain Dresscholic will have a dress for you.

On a first look the collection of dresses may look a bit extravagant, bold and daring. Look a bit closer and you can find some elegant items that are stylish yet more modest.

Dresscholic in Nisantasi is surrounded by a number of boutiques. The other boutiques in Nisantasi also have great dresses, but are more up market and snobbish in both their display and service.

I am a sucker for service and Dresscholic trumps its rivals on this matter. When in Dresscholic I felt like I was on a girls day out (even though I was alone!).  Esra the designer and owner gave me, the uncertain potentially annoying customer, all the attention I wanted.  As I changed from one dress to another in the very pink and girly changing room, Esra snapped away taking pictures of me so I could send them to my mum. Within 5 minutes a tailor came to alter my choosen dress and make it look like it was designed with my measurements in mind. I just need to wait 4 days for the alterations and then I can turn some heads in Milan!

If you are in Istanbul check out Dresscholic.  You can find a lovely dress for about £150. There is always an occasion to look good, stylish and stand out from the crowd.
