About me
Hi there! I'm Begum, an enthusiastic Interior Design Graduate from Turkey and a current graduate student of Fashion Media And Communication at London College Of Fashion. Motivated by the desire to create beautiful things which create a connection between people and feelings through spatial experiences. I am inspired by the notion of community and people. Spaces that build community and foster human interaction and give way for human stories to evolve. I strongly believe that design has a huge part to play in the stories we tell as individuals and as whole communities - something I hope to be able to build on throughout my future career working on projects which put human experience at its center whilst crafting incredible stories. I have a love of fashion and I particularly like projects which give me the opportunity to bridge my interest in fashion and interior design. I am currently focused on the future of spatial experiences especially through new and emerging technologies to envision, plan and design fashion environments, experiences, events, and installations.
