But now let Yaz talk about at herself and her brand at 360°.
I imagine there was a moment where your passion for accessories wanted to become something more. When you decided to turn it into a job? How was born your brand?
My first interest was music being on scene, performance and all that went along with that was inspiring me. Got my eyes open to all kind of arts through my parents, ended up in Paris, did studio Bercot and after working with designers such as Alexander McQueen and Jeremy Scott I decided to launch our accessory brand with my sister . We used accessories that became our tools for story telling, our playground for performances through trompe l’œil and surréalist pièces
So was born Yazbukey in 2000!
What is your main source of inspiration?
Basically everything! Life is an inspiration and dreams are as well. I get inspired 24/7 🙂
