Tarkan the Trendsetter

For the Turkish daily Akşam, Nurbanu Güney Elbir and Sayit Durmaz interviewed some celebrities and famous fashion designers about Tarkan’s comeback concert at Harbiye Theatre. While Metin Arolat, the artist and director who shot Tarkan’s beautiful video “Kuzu Kuzu” years and years ago, is quoted saying, “I like Tarkan’s new songs. There is no Tarkan song which I don’t like anyway. It’s a pleasure listening to him. Tarkan can transform the songs he sings in his own way”, Nilgün Belgün, a popular Turkish actress also famous for her lively disposition, comments on Tarkan’s songs and outfits, “These songs are the songs of a mature artist. The lyrics are all rich in meaning. I gave Tarkan an en evil eye bead right before the concert. His outfits were fabulous. If I were younger, I would get dressed just like Tarkan”

Neslihan Yargici and Dilek Hanif, famous Turkish designers, both agree that Tarkan has made the right decision in his choice of outfits. Yargıcı is quoted saying “I did not like Tarkan’s persona for “Metamorphosis” but now he looks more dynamic and much younger. This is the Tarkan we have always wanted him to be” and Hanif says “Tarkan’s outfits and the concept of his new album have a good match. It is obvious that he worked on his new look a lot.”

In the same report, Lara Sayılgan, photographer and image-maker, calls Tarkan’s comeback a good one: “This is the Tarkan persona we have missed. It’s just like him… I cannot agree with those who still criticize him.”
