turkey has talent

Alessandra Ambrosio shot for Koton spring summer 2011 swimwear campaign.

I was actually at a Brand Is You conference last week that was held at the Vakko headquarters,where the founder of Koton, Yilmaz Yilmaz gave an inspiring speech considering he started his company with around $5000 trying to sell off excess merchandise that he was given by someone who was about to go bankrupt! 

Along with his wife and now a staff of over 10,000 he has grown the company in a relatively short period(23 years), to have 225 shops in 24 different countries.

I am telling you Turkey has talent.
