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

When I was little, the Furbys were very popular. I remember trying so hard to get my parents to buy me a Furby. When I finally got a Furby, I took it everywhere I went. At that time, it was very impressive that a toy could talk, plus Furby’s eyes were very beautiful!

What is your dressing style? 

I think my style is smart casual. I used to try so hard to look incredibly good and never go out in sweatsuits. Sweatsuits have taken an important place in my closet recently, and I think I will continue to use them for a long time.

I have snakeskin pants. I haven’t had a chance to wear them too much, but I think they are very cool!

There are brands, not someone I follow or look up to. Heliot Emil, Berluti, Prada etc.. But to tell one person, I like Martin Ehmele’s style. I think he lives in Vienna. I like all the pieces he wears.

What is your favorite place in İstanbul? Why?
