Born in Izmir, a beautiful seaside city in Turkey, Beste studied at Dokuz Eyul University where she achieved a BA in Fashion Design.   After moving to the UK to live, she continued to progress her knowledge by studying Creative Textile Design in Central St Martin’s and Customised Pattern Cutting at London College of Fashion 
with Dennic Chunman Lo, one of the best in his field in the fashion industry.
With a wealth of experience, Beste has designed and made fashion accessories for a London boutique, 
successfully ran her own children’s clothing line and made bespoke evening gowns for private clients.
Beste is now giving her full attention to her dream job, creating and making stunning vintage-inspired dresses
 and veils from her atelier in Izmir, where she lives with her husband Duncan, a film editor and their 
three young children - James, Bella and Siena - and Coco the dog.

“I truly believe that fashion can enhance our beauty and indulge our dreams. My designs reflect my character and style and whilst I offer a bespoke design service, it’s really important to me that I work with my client to find the right design for us both; a dress that I enjoy making as much as she enjoys wearing. 
Seeing a bride-to-be in her dream dress feeling like a princess, is the best feeling ever as a designer. I am a firm believer in this quote that “…some people are settling down, some people are settling and some people refuse to settle for anything less than butterflies...” I consider myself a very lucky person to be doing what I love, having a loving, supporting family and being surrounded by the most amazing friends”
