The Ottoman Empire went through a significant evolution in their life and dress styles, especially during the 19th century because of increasing European influence. As appearance gained importance, the Ottoman elite became more interested in fashion. More time spent in front of the mirror suddenly made it a symbol of luxury and a form of art. Handcrafted mirrors made of silver, gold and mother-of-pearl were valuable gifts used as a fashion statement or as a decorative piece hanged on palace walls. Inspired by mirrors in palaces, Sultans Mirrors collection is a 21st century reflection of the elite and polished individual.
