Two Cultures, One Soul

I am back to London and back to feeding my soul with art, dance and culture. I had the pleasure of seeing Torobaka at Saddler's Wells. Torobaka is a dance fiesta performed by Israel Galvan and Akhram Khan: two people with two different traditions and styles, each allowing their passion and soul, to come as one.

Hello, South Africa

The month of October was full of amazing developments and one of them was that our first store in South Africa opened in Johannesburg on the 30th. To celebrate the opening, we had an event where top stylists, editors and fashion insiders attended. What I love about the South African market is how open and full of positivity customers are and how they value beautifully made things. This is why, I am very honoured to have our store open in Melrose Arch - perfect location at the perfect city.

Office Life

Would you like to peek into my office? Here are behind the scene, personal photos of my office in Istanbul. Every object that I have in here has a meaning for me: paintings and art that I bought from my travels, a Buddha statue, a ruby, a picture of me and my brother from Bulgaria and pomegranates from the tree in my garden. And of course: books.

Seeing Istanbul
Ara Guler

Meet Ara Guler , known as one of the best 7 photographers in the world, and as he likes to describe himself: a visual historian. Born in 1928, the Turkish-Armenian photojournalist, Guler, believed that photography should document the lives of people and capture the evolution of humanity and how cities transformed over time. His work documented far away lands, cities and the rich and famous such as Salvador Dali, Alfred Hitchcock and Dustin Hoffman among others. But he is most proud of capturing his beloved city, Istanbul. He showed us the children playing in mud, the whirling dervishes permorfing their dance, as well as fishermen going out into the sea. It was not the building or the historical sites, but humanity that he was interested in.

“When I’m taking a picture of Aya Sofia, what counts is the person passing by who stands for life”

I recently had a chance to meet him at my favourite seafood restaurant on the Bosphorus, and I wanted to introduce you to him as his work and philosophy is in line with Neri Karra – to make love visible.
