It seems that my story began with the measuring tape my teacher put around my neck. I cried because I had to role play a tailor in the school play while my friends got to become engineers, doctors, or teachers. Even though I got upset with my teacher because of his choice, I can see that I took the first steps to my career that day. My first designs were the jewelleries during the summer holidays in middle school. When my accessories were sold in a store in Çeşme, I decided to get trained about this and enter this industry. As I started to take sawing lessons, my friend Naz and I came up with our own design, “Rokoko Design”. Rokoko Design was the first reaching step for us. We were still students when we made sales and organized fashion shows with Rokoko design brand name. I opened my first fashion house in 2010 in with the support of my family while I was still a student. In 2012, I moved my store to Alsancak. I believe Alsancak is the right answer for my designs. Laces, dusty colours, vintage clothes…they all represent the "Yeliz Cengiz" brand name. I want to expand and improve my brand which designs for those who want to be different and unique in a world where everything is routinized and manufactured.
