District in Istanbul, Turkey
Nişantaşı, is a neighboorhood of the Şişli District, now a byword in urban chic, takes its name from a surprisingly rustic incident late in the 18th century, when the Sultan erected a little obelisk to mark the descent of a particularly well-shot arrow. Today’s high-fliers aim for Kenzo or Armani. And alongside the other international labels that have set up shop – Gucci, Prada, Vuitton, DKNY, Burberry – are the more innovative names in Turkish fashion and food.
