Faik Sönmez started custom tailoring in 1950, and soon became one of the most sought after dressmakers in Istanbul.
In 1972, he started applying his fitting and pattern expertise to ready to wear clothing.
Using his experience of more than 20 years in fitting, he started preparing patterns to suit Turkish women’s measurements;
his comfortable, custom-made-like dresses are presented with meticulous seaming, high quality fabrics and affordable prices.
During the past 69 years, change has been constant at Faik Sönmez; but still, our understanding of quality has remained unaltered.
Work on a collection starts a year in advance. Every season 35.000 fabrics are examined, 1000 fabrics are tested in detail.
More than 150 different kinds of fabric are used in every collection.
Basic patterns that took root over the years are revised with pinpoint accuracy for each and every fabric.
Starting 6 months in advance, around 1000 samples will be sewn and of those 400 will be brought into production.
The garments are sewn by professionals who have worked at and have been trained in our company.
Our alteration service, available in every store, ensures the perfect fitting of the outfit just bought.
“Elegance”, “simplicity”, “care for details”, in short “quality” is emphasized in our all time classical garments.
This said, our designs reflect contemporary styles that will make women look and feel trendy.
