Mar 2005
  • Dear Ladies and Gentleman, I am a highly experienced fashion business professional. Beside broad business experience on the creative processes in fashion industry, I have also lectured in Izmir Economy University about textile and fashion business to fashion design students. In2011 I decided to re-evaluate my career and move into a creative field. I chose writing to follow my childhood dream. Meanwhile I published my first fiction novel with a well-known publisher in Turkey and I am working on my second novel. With the creative experience of the recent years I decided to combine my previous experiences with my new direction. Creative people typically have a dream and a new vision. However they need support on subjects like understanding the business trends and business development. Further in my career I would like to concentrate in building bridges between creative minds and commercial thinking. I want to focus on how to deal with the market needs without losing the personal creativity and personal style. I am planning to focus in the lectures and workshops I give on creative and commercial processes for both creative and non-creative people. I am aiming to continue writing, lecturing and consulting in the future. Kind Regards Özge Göztürk
