About

I am an international fashion designer with eighteen years of experience, with my area of expertise creating jersey and knitwear collections. I also work on casual RTW for both men and women's brands. In 2010 I started my own niche fashion business ONDER OZKAN STUDIO, which continues to this day, focussing on niche knitwear. My philosophy for design is connected with the World Cultural Heritage of Anatolian Civilizations incorporating a unique contemporary style. I continue to present my collections at the Mercedes Benz Fashion week in Istanbul every year.
