WdKA is delighted to welcome Mehtap Gungormez, who joins our team of tutors in the academic year 2020-2021.
What is your branch of knowledge and subject?
What is your source of inspiration?
I am always observing people on the streets, the way they act, behave and what they are wearing.
What defines you as a tutor? Your strongest points?
I think I have a relaxed and open attitude and I am always looking for a dialogue with my students.
What is your dream/goal as a tutor?
I would like to teach students to understand the fashion world and learn to see the industry with a 'helicopter view'. By learning to zoom out and see ‘the bigger picture’, they can find their role in this field.
Name one item from your bucket list?
I don’t really have a bucket list, but I am still hoping I will speak fluent French, Spanish and Italian one day.
Whom would you call true innovator?
In fashion design, I would go for Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel and Miuccia Prada. Chanel was always ahead of her time, because of the way she liberated women through her designs. And Miuccia Prada has a political background and is a very intelligent designer; she is always a true innovator because of the new aesthetics she introduces. Where everyone goes right, Miuccia goes left.
