INSIDE THE LIFE OF A VIBRANT TURKISH VILLAGE

INDIE’s fashion director Dogukan Nesanir revisits his childhood friends and family in the special village of Çokyaşar, Turkey. This neighbourhood is slightly on the lesser side of wealthy, howbeit enriched with Turkish culture and unified in felicity. In love with his Turkish heritage, Dogukan explored his hometown with nostalgic gratitude towards his long-lasting roots. During his visit, his relatives and friends shared all their beautiful encounters and spoke so openly about how all their lives have changed. Despite the unfortunate politics stance Turkey is currently facing, this community is standing taller than ever to show they will not be intimidated, showing their happiness conquers all.
