London based Turkish designer Tugcan Dokmen launched her WomensWear label TGCN in 2016 after graduating from MA Fashion WomensWear at Royal College of Art.
Dokmen began to specialize in different colour and texture combinations, print and silhouette during her BA studies in Fashion Print at Central Saint Martins.
Through the years, she explored print design and pattern cutting while working at BLESS Paris, Diane von Furstenberg (New York), Chalayan (London), GILES (London) and Beymen (Istanbul).
Her graduate collection Sherbet Nymphs, explored the Turkish men’s favorite clothing item -unfashionable lined polo t-shirts- through stripping layers off to soften and freshen up the use of lines in textile and turn them into more delicate looks. She has been further exploring her Sherbet Nymphs Collection in her S/S 17 collection under her label TGCN.
In 2012, she was shortlisted for Swarovski Sponsorship.
In October 2015, she has been selected as one of the CFDA+ finalists.
