The name, "Ninu Nina" stems from the alien language spoken by Robin Williams in "Mork & Mindy" ( a popular 1970's comedy show).

Tuvanam's Princesses of Ani

My dear friend Tuvana Demir, is what I like to call a "jack of all trades"- shes' an incredible fashion designer ( with various labels, TUVANAM, TUTTI), boutique owner A46, stylist, event designer, creative director, etc, based in Istanbul, Turkey. Over the years she has designed some spectacular dresses, and accessories for me and has been a huge source of inspiration. She recently shared these photos from a recent photo shoot she directed in the most  well preserved ancient city of Ani in the province of Kars in Turkey.

Tuvana is known for her celebration of the embellished, over the top, and  modern take on the "belle epoque" style. She and her business partner, husband Selim Demir, have just  launched their newest brand “ TUVANAM Baby Couture ”, and choosing a favorite photo to post was impossible so check out their facebook page to view the collection.
