Interview with Fashion Designer Nurcan Rutter

Hi There..... Are you in for another fashion designer interview? 

I am glad the fashion industry is so versatile so that I can present you with something different every time. You are not waiting for boring blog posts with always the same stories, now are you. Well, it’s something I don’t want either. I think it’s fun to always find new things. 😀

Today’s fashion designer interview is largely about hair accessories. Ah, talking about hair jogged back some ancient memories of my initiation into the college fraternity. It was lots of fun. We went by tram to the center of the city where we had to clean the tram rails with a toothbrush. Nah, they didn’t have to be squeaky clean. It was just for a laugh. 😄

Afterward, we took a walk and stopped frequently, where they filled our clothes with straw and rubbed our heads with a gel-like substance with a strong garlic odor. They led us to a party to celebrate our initiation. It was lots of fun except for one minor detail. It took me a couple of weeks to get the smell of garlic out of my hair. 😂

Enough about me. Let me introduce you to Nurcan, who is a 34-year-old fashion designer and has her own brand based in the UK. 😊

What kind of work do you do, or what are you studying to be? 

I studied in Turkey as a fashion designer & I studied garment technology for fashion at UAL Fashion Retail Academy in London. 
After I worked for the fast fashion industry, I saw the impact of the industry on the environment. I took a decision to go in the opposite direction of fast fashion and created my upcycling fashion journey and brand officially in May 2021. 
At the moment I am collecting unwanted fashion items, deadstock fabrics, beads, or craft equipment to re-design them to have a new life as hair accessories, bags, purses, even jewelry rather than going into landfills.

What made you decide to become a Designer? 

It dates back to my childhood. I grew up in a big family & street culture in Turkey, Istanbul where women came together to cut, sew and alter their clothes. I was always with them cutting & doing edges or pinning the fabric & trying to make clothes for my dolls with their leftover fabrics so I probably got influenced by the local talented ladies. 


Is fashion important to you? Why? 

Yes, because it is a visual and endless industry where you can combine lots of styles from the last century to today. It is actual history, you can look at fashion evolution like a tale of all our humanity. This tells you a lot about the past such as economy, politics, popular culture, society, art. It is like a massive database.

What are your successes and how did you achieve them? 

When I was in college I had the opportunity to work with one of the famous Haute couture brands in Turkey called Yildirim Mayruk. I worked closely with the designer and his lovely team, and their workplace was just dreamy. They didn't allow you to throw any piece of fabric in the waste bin. 
This experience taught me about the Haute couture culture and how to be creative. It made me realize how important a piece of fabric can be. 
I learned hand stitching skills, pattern cutting, fitting, and alteration skills there, which are my gold medals today. 


Is the name of the Brand important to you when you buy clothing? 

No, not at all. The functionality is important to me. I can buy clothing from anywhere from high street names to bazaars or even car boot sales. You can find very functional, unique, and interesting items at car boot sales. 
For example, I bought a 3/4 sleeves long waterfalls cardigan from a street bazaar years ago. It can transform into multiple items such as a bolero, or a tunic with a belt. I even transferred it to a bag with a couple of knots. It is probably my favorite piece in my wardrobe. 
Of course, I have branded pieces too! Some English heritage brands I love such as Hobbs, Jigsaw, The white company but I mainly focus on second hands shops, bazaars, or individual unique brands, because you can see and feel the journey and you can even find more unique and functional pieces from them. 

Describe your personal style of clothing? 

I can identify myself as boho style which is the most comfortable for me, and besides that, I think I could describe myself in 80s hippie and vintage style rather than a modern look. In terms of items, you can find me in a long flare dress and platform shoes or sandals in the summer. 
I love to complete my look with jewelry, especially bulky ones like drop earrings or boho-lined necklaces. I also love to decorate my hair with a hair accessory. Could be a giant scrunchie with a big bun or hair clips to put up my messy hair. Even if I am at home, I like to style myself, especially during the lockdown. I am more conscious about what I am wearing because it expresses my mood & feelings & cares. We also have two dogs and a cat so they are my everyday audience. I also like to look good at zoom meetings. 
 

How did you find your personal style? Do you have a signature look? 

I can’t say I have a signature look at the moment, but I like to look timeless. Looking back to my early 20s, I looked more gothic. I was more into dark colors and I remember that anything in black tulle was my favorite. Dark romantic makeup was essential. My look has changed because I found my true esthetic over the years. 
I am a short & slim woman so my body shape gets lost by wearing all dark. My wardrobe is more colorful now, and I love flower-printed dresses long/short or mid-length for summer. For winter, I have long scarfs I can wear multiple ways even at home wrapping myself in them to keep myself warm or create a stylish and cozy look. 
My other essential touch is mascara. Yes, that actually can be my signature because I believe it is positively changing expression and style. 

Do you have an influence on other people’s clothing style? 

Yes, they like my vision which impresses me because it proves that I am doing a good job. When they ask me for advice on their clothing style, I always share my honest opinion. I love giving them tips and thoughts about their style.
 

What are in your eyes the best trends at the moment?

Loungewear! Since the pandemic started, a majority of people work from home. Simple stylish and of course comfortable loungewear is necessary. I guess it will be a key trend from now on. Even when getting back to the new normal. 
Seamless work outfit items are key in this decade and they are my favorite. Simple, light, and easy to wear for the new rushing about age.

What are in your eyes the worst trends at the moment? 

Bralette. I just don’t find them useful, effective, or necessary. 

What kind of fashion advice would you give us? 

My first piece of advice would be that you need to wear clothes that fit your body shape, meaning that you need to know your body shape and find the best clothes that are suitable. 
It doesn’t matter what your body shape is, fitting clothes will make anyone look stunning. 
Second, fashion is a rich sector and there are lots of fashion brands that encourage you to shop effectively by showing you exactly what you need. They will help you avoid having a wardrobe full of items you never wear and they will also help you find your right style too. 
I also strongly advise you to alternate your pre-loved items and enjoy making combinations of your clothes, explore new styles of your own. Don't let fashion authorities dictate you, because fashion & styling should be fun. Just enjoy it.


Who is your style icon and why? 

Audrey Hepburn, of course. She owned the adorableness and natural, graceful temperament of a classic woman. Stevie Nicks with a combination of bohemian & vintage style, of course, for her powerful voice. Vivienne Westwood with her divergent designs and creativity. Kate Moss for her beauty & unique style. 

Is there something else you would like to share with us? 

Always be yourself and always have your opinion about styling fashion. It's not about shape so do not let fashion hurt you. 

Thank you so much for filling in my questions with so much detail, Nurcan. 😍

I wish I could wear such stunning scrunchies, but long hair is just not for me. 

Hope you like my blog.....Until next time.....Have a nice day

Where To Find Some Great Gifts For Men - Fashion Gift Guide with 15 Items - June 2021

Hi There..... Are you ready for a new gift guide?

Ah, you are probably thinking, what? Is she sharing another gift guide? Oh yes indeed, but not for women. This time I collected some great gifts for men. 😊

At first, I was thinking, should I put them all into one big gift guide, but it would have made quite an extensive list. I felt it was better to split them up. It made me feel powerful being able to split up the sexes. 😁

My list for men is not as extensive as the gift guide for women. I just didn't get in as many reactions, don't ask me why. I wouldn't hold it against you if you would ask me why anyway, because that is usually the first thing I do when people ask me not to ask why. 😏

Cheeky, I know, not my fault. I didn't have any say when my mom and dad made me and therefore also a large part of my character. You really weren't expecting me to blame myself, I hope. 😂

Ok men, would you like to start a new trend? Then perhaps you should browse these shops for some more great gifts for men. 😎

Contrast Rib Sweatshirt $73.00


A world of timeless designs that honor the people who make them and the places they’re made.

Our mission is to set the standard for conscious creation and consumption. Developing products around the principles of considered design, relentless quality, honest value, and positive impact—for our people, and our planet.

Since our founding in 2015, we’ve worked from the ground up to ensure fair labor practices and collaborative communities, working towards a strong foundation, designed to prosper for generations, not fiscal quarters.

We work hard to show our community every step of the way—the good and the bad—and communicate not just what we’re doing to improve, but also how they can help.

Inspired by Japanese design, the Contract Rib Sweatshirt is cut with a dropped shoulder and boxier top, that tapers slightly through the body. 
Featuring V-shaped ribbed neck detailing, and ribbed side panels for added interest. Crafted from 100% BCI cotton, with a smooth suede-like exterior, and brushed fleece interior.


KENTON SLIPPER $100.00


It started in 1978 when Australian surfer Brian Smith moved to Southern California with a dream. Designing a product unlike any other from his favorite material – sheepskin – the Classic Boot was born. By the mid-80s, UGG became a symbol of SoCal beach culture, gaining momentum through surf shops from San Diego to Santa Cruz. Adopted by the fashion elite and then the world, the brand has since expanded beyond the icon to design footwear, apparel, accessories, and homeware with an uncompromising attitude toward creativity, quality, and craftsmanship.

With a sole that goes anywhere, the Kenton slips on for lazy mornings at home, weekend plans, or casual office days. Lined with our soft, warm wool, this slipper pairs well with flannel pajamas or your favorite jeans and a tee. The heel is also collapsible, so you can wear it up or down, depending on your mood.
Sheepskin Lining Vetted through extensive, industry-leading processes to ensure only the highest quality sheepskin makes the cut, delivering the signature feeling of UGG.

Wallet + Leather and Loop $ 69.00


As a father of five young children, I felt like I was throwing out broken toys constantly. I have a low tolerance for waste and it bothered me more and more. I noticed most products, not just toys, were cheap, low quality, and disposable.

The lack of products also being made domestically dismayed me. Almost nothing in retail stores had a “Made in the USA” label. Something didn’t feel right. After some research, I discovered that manufacturing is vital to economic strength. 
Over the last half-century, the United States has been slowly losing its manufacturing infrastructure and know-how. Watching the United States slowly and steadily lose that vital competency made me concerned we weren’t thinking properly about our future. Losing knowledge is losing power.

At GRIP6 our mission is to create high-quality products that last decades and to strengthen domestic manufacturing. What you buy from us with your hard-earned money should be something you love and want to use daily for the rest of your life. We know it’s a lofty goal, but it is something we strive for. This approach has worked for belts and we believe it can apply to other products. Our intent is to be more than a belt company.

SIMPLE, FAST, EASY CARD ACCESS- The GRIP6 Wallet was designed to be easy and simple to access your cards as quickly as possible. It's a high-quality product designed and tested to last a lifetime. As with all GRIP6 products, we back it with our GUARANDAMNTEE, an unconditional, unlimited lifetime warranty.

We regularly launch new products and collections and try to provide a shopping experience that reaches beyond just any other retailer or online catalog.

Seizing the moment starts with seeing each passing second differently.

Max Lounge Shirt $78.00


Sleepy Jones exists to help people rest and unplug—in order to reconnect—with ideas, creativity, and with others. We believe that the comfort of being yourself is authentic style. So be yourself, be comfortable, and the rest will come.

Our History
Sleepy Jones was established in 2013 by Andy Spade. When he looked at the people he admired—artists, writers, musicians—they didn’t work and create in suits and ties, yoga gear, or any other fashion fetish. They wore what was comfortable, and sometimes little at all.

The result is a collection of supremely comfortable sleepwear, lounge wear, underwear, and not-quite-ready-to-wear for men and women inspired by the lifestyles of artists.

An everyday uniform for resting, reading, writing, and playing—in or outside the bedroom.

This long-sleeved tee is made in a lightly brushed, medium-weight jersey. The 1x1 rib trim at the cuffs and neck is soft and supportive with quick recovery. The neck trim is applied on the bias to indicate that you care much more about your loungewear. We, like you, take our leisure seriously. 


PROJECT-RWB RED WHITE AND BLUE DUNDEE SILVER AND ROPE BRACELET £70.00 ($96.95)

Some brands may want to process the silver coating of base metal, fabricate a look and then advertise their products as high quality, but that's their choice, we won't. Every purchase (jewellery and accessories only) comes with a 1-year warranty and care instructions.

The Project-RWB Red White and Blue Dundee Silver and Rope Bracelet were both designed and skilfully handcrafted completely in Great Britain, In Quality We Trust. For the Modern Journeyman (and woman), ANCHOR & CREW takes ownership of an exploratory lifestyle and enjoys the Happy-Good Life. Combining British craft manufacturing with a discerning modern-minimalist style, this ANCHOR & CREW bracelet features:

3mm diameter performance Marine Grade polyester and nylon rope (GB) 
Secure solid .925 sterling silver mushroom-button cleat (GB)
SIZING
This bracelet is one size fits all, with the rope able to extend or tighten to suit your wrist size. To take the bracelet on or off your wrist, simply slide the one adjustable knot around the rope to make the loop size smaller or larger, and once set, keep the loop size consistent and continue wearing by easily unhooking the loop over the clasp. As pictured, the bracelet is most secure when the rope loop is fed through the smaller loop that emerges beyond the clasp. Less is More.

BLACK TAPERED FIT SHIRT £55.00 ($76.17)


I have put my heart and soul into creating what you know to be the TAPERED brand today. Nothing is more important to me than providing you with the perfect product. I not only want to help you showcase your hard-earned body, but it’s also important to us that you can enjoy the confidence of having the perfect TAPERED™ fit.  

Like many of our customers, I worked office jobs and for years faced the frustration of ill-fitting shirts that needed to be tucked in from the sides and back each time I stood up from the desk. While the traditional shirts would fit well in the chest and shoulders, they would always bag around the waist. It’s safe to say that it got annoying really fast.  

At the end of 2016, I decided to take the leap and worked with a team of designers and industry experts to bring you our exclusive TAPERED™ fit shirt. With thorough testing and endless rounds of edits, I finally produced a product I deemed perfect for you.  

Strong physiques are not just made in the gym. They’re made from the clothes we wear. Are you feeling frustrated with shirts billowing around your waist? 

The Black Tapered Fit Shirt has been crafted by leading tailors and designers to allow for a close fit on your shoulders and chest whilst tapering in sharply at the waist. Designed with athletes and bodybuilders in mind - proportional and muscular fitted. Guaranteed to make you look in the mirror and admire the same physique you’re proud of in the gym.

Built with comfortable and breathable stretch cotton, achieving freedom of movement and flex comfort.

Our muscle-defining shirts are ideal for both business formal and casual occasions, with the Tapered logo subtly stitched on the wrist for that non-obtrusive look.

Special occasions are so significant, but finding just the right gift isn’t easy. I hope that STAY FINE can provide you some meaningful, intentional, and memorable gift options.

Whether it be letters or greeting cards, many of my family members, including myself, collect and save every one of these tangible memories as true treasures.

Retro Trucker Maroon SEK249.00 ($29,26)


The year was 2012, and it started with a simple idea based on a simple need, a natural product to style and care for your facial hair. This was the beginning of the FIRST BEARD CARE BRAND IN SWEDEN.

we strive to offer the world’s greatest products.

THE MISSION
Mr Bear Family strives to give you the same experience as any other high-end/commercial product, just without all the bullshit. There are always shortcuts, ways to make things easier but to achieve the genuine quality you need to take the long road and do it right. Mr Bear Family takes the long road!

Brown Leather Suspenders $79.00


JJ Suspenders was created with the goal of designing fresh, high-quality suspenders within a not-so-innovative industry.

It started in 2014 when founders Jackson and Josh were shopping for suspenders to wear at a friend’s wedding and after visiting dozens of shops all they could find were a handful of generic, outdated, and overpriced suspenders. When looking for alternatives online, they quickly found that about 90% of the suspenders on the market were low quality and mass-produced by the same factory. The only suspenders that met Jackson and Josh’s quality standards were from a very old company in England. But with this came high shipping costs, outdated designs, and poor customer service.

It was clear there was an opportunity in this stale industry to make a much better product for men who wanted to add that extra bit of class to their outfits. Combining Jackson & Josh’s (JJ’s) prior entrepreneurial and manufacturing experience, JJ Suspenders was born with a series of designs that brought some much-needed innovation back into this stagnant industry.

We're on a mission to innovate on the long-forgotten things that just barely meet the status quo.

These oxblood-brown leather suspenders are the ideal accessory for a relaxed, contemporary wardrobe. They feature a unique burnt-red hue, bold stitching, and weathered hardware. These suspenders have a lot of character. We love these paired with shorts or denim and a white tee for a chilled-out vibe.

Designed for heights between 5'6 and 6'4. 
Includes interchangeable clip and button attachments (with sewing kit) so you can wear them with any pants
Elastic back increases comfort and mobility while preventing clips from slipping off your pants when sitting or kneeling
Suspender width = .75" leather
Classic Y-back design, authentic leather detailing
Includes burlap bag for easy storage
