Arzu Kara launched her own fashion label in 2006 and her company is based in Henley on Thames. Her clientele now numbers over 200, including top model Anastasija Bogatirjova and Fashion muse Olivia Harrison, who come back time and time again for the unique Arzu Kara 'look' that they adore. Arzu Kara Designs can be found in a number of boutiques in the UK and the Channel Islands, and Arzu also undertakes bespoke commissions for haute couture garments.
Arzu has a long history in fashion design. Originally from Istanbul, where she trained in garment construction, she then studied at St. Martin's and went on to graduate with an Honour's degree in Fashion Textiles from Thames Valley University.
Her first employment was as a designer in Istanbul and she then returned to the UK to work as a Design Assistant for Aluma. Shortly after this she jumped at the chance to work with the designer Bora Aksu. During her time with Aksu, she widened her creative vision and started to focus on the wearability of her designs.
