Fifteen Minutes With Erdem Moralioglu

Catching Up With the Designer On His First Houston Trip.

It was a Texas-sized welcome for London-based designer Erdem Moralioglu. The designer got his first taste of Houston while attending the Saks Houston Galleria reopening as a guest of honor, attending a kickoff benefit dinner, ribbon cutting and hosting his own in-store appearance. The the midst of the whirlwind, we caught up for his take on the biggest city in the Lone Star state, what defines beauty, and how to give him the ultimate compliment.

SAKSPOV: So what do you find most interesting about Houston?

Erdem Moralioglu: It’s my first time in Houston, and I’ve had a wonderful time. I loved the Menil Collection, which is just such a wonderful collection of art, especially the Cy Twombly wing. The Rothko Chapel was also amazing. But my favorite thing about Houston is the people. I’ve met some amazing, wonderful women on this trip.

SAKS: Tell us about your design footprint in America and the client you design for.

Erdem: Well, I think what’s so wonderful about working with Saks is how diverse the Saks customer is. The woman I design for is interested in having pieces she can absorb into her life and can wear and keep forever. I think what’s so interesting about the reopening event in Houston is seeing so many women wearing things that were from a few years ago along with the new collection. To me, that’s the biggest compliment, seeing someone wearing my clothes from past seasons that they still love.

SAKS: So in one word, what makes a woman beautiful?

Erdem: Effortlessness. Real beauty is when you see someone who’s completely and utterly themselves. Being you is probably the most beautiful thing you can be.

SAKS: So what’s next on your agenda?

Erdem: After Houston, my next destination is New York for the Met Ball, I’m really excited. It’s like my American Tour!
