Nur Toktay studied stage arts management in Istanbul Bilgi University, where she was inspired to pursue a future as a makeup artist. In 2007 she earned diplomas from Joe Blasco West Makeup School in Los Angeles for “Advanced Glamour Makeup” and “Prosthetic & Special Effects”. In the next several years, her career in professional makeup took a turn when she started making her own one of a kind handcrafted head accessories and later transitioned to handbags.
Nur and her team currently make clutches using materials handpicked from Turkey, Europe and America. Since its inception as a ‘clutch trial project’ in 2015, Nur acquired a growing customer base in Turkey and in the US. Her designs are currently featured in stores in Istanbul, New York and online.
