EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW with Busra Osen Mesudiyeli

Busra Osen Mesudiyeli, studied fashion design in Central St.Martin's School of Art and Design, and in LaSelle International Academy. She opened her own atelier 'Busra Osen' in Izmir, a couture house that also custom makes casual wear. In 2011, she created 'Easy Couture' a  chic bohemian inspired pret-a-porter line. Her pieces are very easy to wear, but equally chic with a distinctive 70s look. What attracted me most to Busra, was her personal style. This petite Rapunzel posses the kind of style that anyone would kill to have, literally! 

This is my EXCLUSIVE with Busra:
F:When did you know that fashion is your passion?
B:I could not remember exactly when, I guess I was about 4-5 years of age when it became a passion of mine :)

F:You have AMAZING style! You should be a stylist! Describe your personal style.
B:I have my own atelier in Izmir, Turkey. I had a fashion education at school, after that I started to make custom-made costumes and limited ready to wear collections under a line called EASY COUTURE for particular boutiques in Turkey. My style is a little bit consufing, it's mainly about feel good. I like 'effortless' looks... I also love modern lines, I like bohemian and hippie styles, & surely I adore couture. About my own style, I always wear flared jeans at the day time with good-shaped tops and leather jackets, with high-heels and cool sunnies!:)

F:What inspires you?
B:I'm not the type of person that gets influenced easily, but cities, islands and architecture can inspire me.

F:5 years from now, what do you want your line to be known for?
B:I'd like to be known as a TREND-SETTER :)) I would also love that my line become a very exclusive one...

F:What do you do to maintain your figure, and what do you do to have such healthy and glossy hair, Tell us your secret!
