From The Designer - My roots go back to the Crete Island, I was born and raised in the Mediterranean coast of Turkey. My parents had me and my sister 13 years after they got married and this fact made us very important to them, and we’ve been a very close family. I’ve felt their love my whole life... Even when I was little, I was a very ambitious and a very curious girl. And I just loved painting... I have served as a top executive in the tech industry for long years. After losing my mom very suddenly, I’ve realized we are not guaranteed a tomorrow and that I had to pursue my lifelong dream of creating my own brand. I’ve always felt my mom’s support even after losing her and this support gave me enough strength to make this huge change in my life. Since leather has always been my favorite texture – the one I believe has the ability to make a woman look unique, stylish and strong - my initial focus was on fine leathers. My vision has been to give leather a new identity, and a new perspective. We did so by working with paper-thin leathers, so lightweight that they could be contorted and manipulated like any other easily yielding fabrics. We rounded out the collection with a variety of other luxury fabrics to help complete the full looks I’ve wanted to achieve.
