About Me
I am 43 years old, I lived in New York most of my life but about 7 years ago, I moved to Florida. I am originally from Turkey, my family moved us to the United States in 1976.
I am an artist, and I love fashion the combination felt right form me to follow a career in the Fashion Industry. After graduating from college, I pursued my career in the fashion world, I wanted to open my own business so when I got the opportunity to open a restaurant in Florida, I took advantage of the opportunity. however, I miss the fashion industry. I became extremely unhappy and decided to go into the Fashion business once again.
Fashion Industry Experience
I am a graduate of Fashion Institute of Technology.
I have been in the fashion industry for over 5 years, I have teamed up with a fashion designer from Turkey, Aybuke Baran who designs cultural Turkish clothes. She is also a cousin of a very famous Turkish disigner Cemil Ipekci.
Our fashion show was back in 2004, I am now in the restaurant industry for 5 years. I own and operate Efes Turkish Cuisine in Sanford Florida, located in the historic downtown marina isle. I plan to use my restaurant for upcoming fashion shows, I am a designer, however I worked in every aspect in the design industry. I have skills in sewing, drawing, and technical designing.
I have worked with an Indian based company prior for 3 and half years as a production assistant. The company I worked for was a third party between major deign companies and factories based out of India. The company has about 13 locations throughout the world.
I have met many designers particularly Max Azria, during fashion week, i was invited to attend Max Azria's fashion show and after the party in honor of Mr. Azria. i had mentioned to him that I wanted to hold another fashion show with my designs and I remember him telling me that he would like to attend. The fashion show never took place because I was much too busy with my current work. However I want to be back in this business because this is what makes me happy. I honestly believe that this world needs my designs so here I am.
I am an artist, I work mainly with pencil but I have used oil paint, watercolor, charcoal and markers through out my life. I am 43 years, old and I have been drawing my whole life.
