WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE AK PRODUCT AND WHY?
The French Market Tote and Kayu Rattan Clutch are on my list. I have been admiring my friends' totes and can't wait to have one of my own.
WHAT ARE YOUR TOP FIVE LATEST OBSESSIONS?
Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 is my number one obsession. I get facials from Aida Bicaj and she got me hooked on it. It really transforms your skin and leaves you glowing.
I love, love, love Zimmerman dresses for the summer. Wearing one always puts me in a good mood.
La Double J is another brand that I am obsessed with these days. As a New Yorker, I tend to wear a lot of black. The bright colors and prints of these dresses help to push me out of my comfort zone.
Tennis is my ultimate obsession, which is no surprise! It's exhilarating and energizing being out at the court, especially on a beautiful day. Whether I'm watching or playing, I'm happy.
BEST ADVICE YOU HAVE EVER RECEIVED?
"The life in front of you is way more important than one you leave behind."
I try to look ahead and focus on what's next as much as possible.
TELL US A BIT ABOUT L'ETOILE SPORT AND HOW YOU GOT STARTED.
Fitness and being active has always been important to me. I'm an avid runner and tennis player, and I played professional basketball in Turkey. Living in New York, I saw an opportunity to create elevated activewear that could transition between the court and the clubhouse. In 2012, L'Etoile Sport was born.
My athletic background and personal style are really what inform all of the L'Etoile Sport designs. The collection is all about fashion and function. We use a lot of luxurious fabrics that are comfortable and designed so that you can really play in them. The collection includes tennis, golf, and activewear styles, so there is something for every woman.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE L'ETOILE SPORT PIECES?
WHO OR WHAT INSPIRES YOU AND WHY?

ANYTHING UPCOMING/NEW ON THE HORIZON THAT WE SHOULD LOOK OUT FOR IN THE FUTURE?
