EXEMPLAR™ IS A LABEL FOUNDED BY BROTHER & SISTER, ERDI & CANSU BAL. BOTH GRADUATES WITH A BA IN INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE IN 2017, THEY BEGIN WORKING WITH ARCHITECTURAL PRACTICES ON AN ARRAY OF INTERIOR & ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN PROJECTS. A REAL INTEREST IN FASHION, BOTH BECOME SELF-TRAINED MENSWEAR & WOMENSWEAR DESIGNERS WHILST STILL CONTINUOUSLY PRACTICING IN ARCHITECTURE. 

EXEMPLAR’S NOTION ON FASHION IS ROOTED FROM AN ARCHITECTURAL STANDPOINT. THEY VIEW THE RELATIONSHIP WE POSSESS BETWEEN FASHION & ARCHITECTURE IS VERY MUCH ALIKE, AS BOTH THESE DISCIPLINES PROVIDE US WITH PROTECTION, PRIVACY, COMFORT & INSULATION, WHICH IS MANIFESTED THROUGH CONTRASTING MEDIUMS. THE GARMENTS EXEMPLAR™ CREATE ARE EXTENSIONS OF THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT AROUND THEM. EXEMPLAR™ ARE EMULATING THEIR LEARNINGS FROM ARCHITECTURE AND ARE ACTUALISING IT IN THE FASHION REALM.
