Magnifience...

Imagine being a palace woman: Wearing amazingly beautiful caftans and jewellery, walking through the stunning corridors of the Topkapi Palace...
What if you could see and feel the atmosphere behind the closed doors of the palace?
Last year the turkish company Has Hali had the most impressive campaign. This company is very famous for its beautiful hand woven carpets. So Has Hali had an advertising campaign and the famous italian photographer Michelangelo Di Battista did a wonderful job shooting the models as ottoman palace women sitting, walking or standing onto the carpets. I still collect the pictures of this campaign which I found in the turkish Marie Claire Maison, because they are brilliant. Michelangelo Di Battista shot pictures that were inspired by paintings of oriental painters. Please take a look at the homepage of Has Hali, there you can see the most beautiful slideshow ever ! Just lay back and enjoy ... it is worth I promise !
