Zekeriya Vural / The Story of BayTerzi…
Here’s the story of BayTerzi: I started out as a tailor’s apprentice to make my school allowance while I was a junior high school student in the 1970’s. During my high school years, I became a headworker who could sew jackets, trousers and vests. I went to college at night and continued to work as a daytime tailor. I opened my first workshop in 1977 and following graduation, started to work as a high school teacher in 1982. On one hand I continued teaching and on the other developed in my profession as a tailor.
In 1987, I gave a break in teaching and started working as a manufacturing manager in a textiles export firm. Here, I have gained experience in fashion-design, styling and model preparation as well. In 1990, I returned to teaching and decided to apply high quality standards of bespoke tailoring by synthesizing my experience in ready-to-wear and made-to-measure sewing.
47 Years of Experience in Tailoring
I worked as an assistant principal and teacher at Istanbul Beyoğlu Tailoring Vocational High School between 1999-2009. The school, established in 1928 by Atatürk, had created the infrastructure of Turkey on clothing and many famous fashion designers & tailors have gained their training here. After retiring from this school, I gave clothing lessons in İstanbul Aydın University Fashion Design Department for a while.
