Zeynep Arçay is the founder and creative director of her namesake collection. Designed in her atelier in Istanbul, the collection features clean and minimalistic silhouettes created for the modern woman. Fabrications include lightweight leather, sustainable cashmere, French Lace, Italian knits, and silk jersey.
Prior to launching her brand in 2016, Arçay served as a top executive in the technology industry for many years. The decision to finally pursue her lifelong dream of creating her own fashion brand was born from the desire to apply her strength, passion, and business savvy to a new endeavor. One that would reflect her style and sensibilities, while representing her roots.
The foundation of the Zeynep Arçay collection is rooted in tailoring through leather, silk, and wool. Paper-thin leathers are hand-selected by Zeynep, at tanneries that are certified by the "Leather Working Group", which promotes sustainable and appropriate environmental business practices within the leather industry. Zeynep’s vision was to give tailoring a new identity – one achieved through creating beautiful blazers, trousers, dresses, and outerwear, blending the masculine & feminine.
Zeynep Arçay is carried by top global retailers including Net-a-Porter, Moda Operandi, The Webster, Harrods, FWRD, MyTheresa, and Saks Fifth Avenue. With a focus on impeccable fit, luxury fabrications, and timeless designs, Arçay continues to create innovative collections for the modern woman.
