I have 6 years work experience as a Fashion Designer and have worked with companies such as Anotah, Eleganza Concept and Mexx. I decided to quit my last job and work as a full-time freelancer.
As you may know Turkey is best known with its Textile Industry. They have thousands of options, and the delivery will take no longer than 15 days maximum and 2 days minimum.
What I do..
I can source fabrics from Istanbul for a good quality and affordability. My customers can provide me the fabric types or images to support what they are looking for and I will provide them the closest or same options they want. I work with many successful fabric suppliers based in Istanbul, who already cooperate with brands such as Topshop, H&M, ASOS, and legendary brands such as Alexander McQueen. These fabric suppliers are usually based on occassional/haute couture/bridal wear fabrics with its; embroidered lace, chiffons, tulles, jacquards and many more.
Wide range of other options I can source are also available such as; linens, PU and real leathers, suedes, denims, cottons and many more are also available in Istanbul. I also have connections with Bursa and Gaziantep Suppliers mostly popular with their cotton qualities.

The charging for the sourcing will be made once we agree on a fixed price for specific fabrics I will need to source, and once the customers are satisfied with the fabrics, I will charge you the fixed price and post the samples to your address. If you decide to order any fabric metres, I will help you with the ordering process and will not charge you anything additional for it unless there is anything to source again.
