After working as a stylist for many years, he founded his own fashion house while introducing his collections in the boutique “Tzagane.” He opened his second boutique “Tzagane” in Nice and has created Haute Couture as well. The Ottoman Empire and Anatolian Civilization inspire his designs, as he is a member of the Ottoman family.

He has also designed diamonds for the Turkish brand “Damra.” Ipekci continues to have a successful career as a Turkish fashion designer.
