What was your favorite toy that you still remember from your childhood? Why?

A puffy turtle which was my best game partner.

What is your dressing style?   

Living in Istanbul + dressing like you want = taking risks. But I like taking risks, actually. I also like cosy feelings that are reflected in my style.

What is the coolest piece in your wardrobe? 

I think it would be my beautiful green caftan.

What is your grooming routine every morning?

I’m a morning person. I wake up around 8:00-9:00 a.m. Having coffee and reading books is my only happy hour of a day.

If there is any style icon you follow, who is it and why? 

I love checking all those cool kids like, Timothee Chalamet, Harry Styles, Zendaya and 070 Shake. Not an icon, but Kieran Culkin has an interesting style as well. And from Turkey, I think Mert Demir has a sense of a good style. 

What is your favorite decorative object in your house? 

I think it’s my “Somewhere” poster and maybe also a cube orange coffee table which is placed next to my sofa.

Which neighborhood in Istanbul is your favorite one? Why?

It’s still Kadıkoy, Moda. But on the other hand I can’t stand that crowd anymore… Cengelkoy is a warm and calm neighborhood, where I like to go once or twice a year.

What is your favorite place in İstanbul? Why? 

Kadıkoy Sinemasi. Because there I really feel like home. 

What was the coolest country, city or place to have the best fun ever? What did you do? 

Tokyo. I lost my mind in Shinjuku. I had one of the best moment of my life in some small bars which had four or six chairs only, in Golden Gai, Shinjuku.
