Do you remember the flower dress I talked about? You know, my idea of hand embroidering a whole dress? If you do, I’m happy to pronounce that I have finally decided to sew that dress once for all. I have bought lots of Lavendel coloured tulle but I’m still searching for the right shade of yarn. So, while my search continue I’m spending time in my sewing room playing with the fabric and trying to decide how I will sew the dress.
To be continued…
I’m glad to finally get to show you the result of my latest projects.
A green velour dress and a yellow chiffong skirt combined with a hand embroidered top.
I recently finished a wonderful photo session with my friend Sibel who took these mindblowing pictures. Check out her amazing projects at http://www.desibel.se/
The photos were taken at the beautiful “Varbergs Stadshotell & Asia Spa”. Visit their website to see photos of a unique hotel and for further information http://www.varbergsstadshotell.com/en

You can read about me and my design in the new issue of DeVoe Magazine. I also want to share the interview with you all here on my blog and I hope you enjoy reading it.
Q. When did you decide that you wanted to be a fashion designer?
A. I have always been very fascinated of fabrics, threads and sewing machines and when I was younger I used to sew dresses for my barbie dolls. At the age of 13 I began to draw my own fashion sketches, but it was when I began high school that I really learned how to sew and draw patterns, and I have continued ever since.
Q. I noticed your designs are very dark and have a classic glamour look, what inspired this aesthetic?
A. I wouldn’t call my design dark but they definitely have a glamorous look. I only design clothes that I would wear myself, so my design is a reflection of my personal style. I don’t like to exaggerate my garments, I prefer keeping them simple but with a “wow”-effect.
Q. If your designs could be translated to a movie, what would the title be?
A. I’m not good at writing titles, but it would definitely be something romantic.
Q. What can we expect to see in your upcoming collections?
A. You will definitely see more dresses created of sheer fabrics such as chiffon and tulle. One of my latest designs is a hand embroidered top, which I enjoyed creating and I’m also extremly pleased with the result, so you will probably see more of that. I will also focus on using fabrics with tinted colours
Q. How would you describe the over all style of your collection?
A. As I mentioned before I like simplicity and I always keep that in mind when I design, so I would describe my collection as simple, elegant and classic. I spend a lot of time creating my garments, so each garment is uniquely handmade which makes it one of a kind.
Q. Who is someone you look up to in the fashion industry?
A. Elie Saab is without any doubts my biggest inspiration as a designer. I love his design and every garment is marvelous.
Q. Where are you from and what is the biggest fashion trend in your area right now?
A. I’m from Turkey but I’ve been living in Sweden my whole life. To be honest I don’t follow particular trends, I think the most important part is to feel comfortable in the clothes you wear. That’s why I wear diffrent kinds of clothes no matter trends, just as long as I like them and feel comfortable wearing them.
Q. What advice would you give to aspiring designers looking to walk in your footsteps?
A. You have to believe in yourself, your ideas and your design. Don’t let other people’s opinions affect you and your style. Don’t be satisfied with creating good garments, create flawless garments and seek for perfection. There will be times when you have to take apart a whole garment and start all over again, and if you really love creating clothes you do it without hesitation.
Q. Where can we purchase your clothing?
A. As for now none of my creations are for sale due to the tremendous time I spend on each creation. Who knows one day I might have my own webshop.
Q. If you could put one celebrity in your clothes, who would it be?
A. Beyonce! She brings the whole package with a perfect mixture of elegance and amazing confidence.
