The XIVAO collection is based on the five main body shapes and their characteristics. With this base the label attracts a high number of customers. Ever since fashion gained importance in society there have been loads of attempts to create clothing suitable for a variety of women. As each woman has special proportions and needs a particular style to look perfectly dressed, XIVAO is the solution. Women’s bodies were always described with the following five categories:
X Shape is the most feminine one. Shoulders and hips are wider than the waist.
I Shape is the one with the fewest curves. There are less differences between shoulders, chest waist and hip proportions.
V Shape shows that the upper part of the body is wider than the underpart. Wide shoulders are the conspicuous characteristics.
A Shape means that the upper part of the body is slimmer than the underparts. The most conspicuous parts here are the hips.
O Shape has the most curves. In most cases there are undesired belly curves and a bigger bust size.
XIVAO is named after these shapes and the idea is to assist women to find ideal outfits for their unique bodies no matter what shape they have. Furthermore women will look even more fabulous due to the well-conceived clothes by XIVAO. So, the simple passion to make women feel fabulous in their own shape, is the main goal of the designers of XIVAO.
XIVAO has been initiated in 2011 when Fashion Designer Zeynel Adakci and Communication Designer Didem Gezginci launched a project called »Project 5«. They researched together what kind of impression customers have of Zeynel Adakci´s creations and if they can find themselves in the forms.
While developing this research they teamed up more and more and decided to unite. They made their first steps to establish the vision of the brand XIVAO, which stands for five different body shapes of women. The aim of the XIVAO Collection was to sort out different body proportions and to create aesthetic clothing for each of them.
The XIVAO collections are soon available at
