Erdem’s Fall 2024 collection at London Fashion Week was a profound homage to Maria Callas, a soprano who stood as one of the most renowned and influential opera singers of the 20th century. Through 50s-inspired glamour and references to operatic drama, Erdem wove the narrative of Callas's life into every stitch, blending mid-century silhouettes with the raw emotion of her story. The collection served as a poignant exploration of the fine line between persona and person, myth and reality, all while celebrating Callas's unparalleled impact on both the world of opera and the notion of celebrity itself.
