What do you do here in New York?
Fashion. Retail. I do new business.
What do you like about your job?
There are always new accounts, and I like interacting with different people.
Where do you live in the city?
I live on 13th and 3rd.
What do you like best about that neighborhood?
It’s really cool. People are young. It’s kind of hipster/luxury.
Where do you hang out there?
I like the restaurant The Smith. And right below my building is Penny Farthing, which is a nice bar.
How would you describe your style, first in terms of dress, and then in terms of your way of being in the world?
Casual but with a sense of luxury. In terms of living, spontaneous and fun.
If you could buy anything you wanted right now, what would it be? Cost is no object.
There’s a building on 10th Avenue and 23rd Street that I was checking out today, and I thought, “Maybe I should work more.”
Where are you from?
When did you move here from Turkey?
I went to UVa for college five years ago. And then I came to the city about a year and a half ago.
And was coming to the city always the plan?
It was, actually. It wasn’t an accident. Now I don’t know. Maybe I’ll stay here for two years, maybe I’ll stay here for four months. I have no plans.
That’s good. Spontaneous.
