Achelya Uluchay was born in Cyprus in 1985. She studied Fashion Design at London College of Fashion and Central Saint Martins and interned for Holly Fulton in London working at London Fashion Week before founding her own label. She then launched her first Swimwear collection in Istanbul in 2013 which was inspired by the sea goddesses in Greek mythology.
Achelya defines her style as eclectic and functional. She loves diversity. “I want women to feel confident, sexy, sophisticated and elegant when they put on something I’ve designed”, Achelya says.
Her distinctive style meets with luxurious Itailan fabrics and finest European accessories for unique quality and detailing.
“I love minimal accessories, geometric forms and sharp lines as much as asymmetrical silhouettes. Functionality is essential in my designs”, she says.
