I am a visual artist with experience in theater, exhibition design, visual merchandising and fashion retail.
I also tapped into the expertise of commercial visual design and started lecturing at Izmir University of Economics in the department of fashion and textile design.
My non-profit project NONFASTFASHION.COM represents a sustainable approach to fashion design by using surplus fabrics only.
