Istanbul, Turkey

With the harmony of old and modern; East and West, Istanbul has inspired me to build my own artistic identity. Also, living in New York City for two years helped me to think outside the box. Besides aesthetics and ethics, function is the main priority for me when I design my collections. I’ve always wanted to observe people who wear my designs and feel special and comfortable in their daily life. That’s the reason I chose sportswear as my major. After graduation, I believe that I’ll work hard to be an inspiring and creative designer but also to be respectful of people and the environment.
