The loves of my life: fashion designer Umit Kutluk
The fashion designer chats about his favourite people, places and things.
My beautiful, smart and loyal dog Joey has to be my favourite 'person' at the moment.
A recent and favourite memory of mine has to be when I was dressing a mannequin in the window of our new boutique in Kildare Village. A lady, who was standing outside, came in and bought the dress I was putting on the mannequin. She asked to get a picture with me while she wore the dress! That was a special moment.
The moment of the day
Sipping freshly brewed coffee first thing in the morning.
Comfy Love by my lovely friend, Hediye Guven.
I prefer to watch TV series. Black Mirror is a great watch on Netflix.
Perfume: The Story of a Murderer by Patrick Suskind.
A pair of fine tailored, cropped trousers, with a printed cotton casual shirt. I wear that outfit almost every day.
I love my new Bose wireless headphones. They have noise cancellation, which is great to use in busy places such as the airport - the silence is beautiful!
The beauty product
I use Obagi360 HydraFactor Moisturizing Cream nearly every day. I am also a fan of Ultherapy [a non-surgical ultrasound treatment that stimulates collagen production], which was recommended to me by Dr Orla Grimes from the Beacon Face & Dermatology Clinic.
A wristband, either a leather wrap or a fine beaded band.
The pet hate
People who do not learn from their mistakes, and then repeat them.
The little island of Bozcaada which lies on the north-east Aegean Sea, near Canakkale in Turkey. Every year in June, it has an annual wine-tasting festival; definitely the best time to be there.
The InterContinental, in Ballsbridge, in Dublin. The staff are fantastic, with top-quality customer service. They make you feel like it is a home from home.
The piece of advice
Be yourself and be patient for your dreams.
I rarely go to bars; however, I do enjoy drinks at the beach.
The part of my body
My eyelashes, I always get compliments on them!
I find the word celebrity to be a confusing term. I am not interested in any 'celebrity', just the person themselves.
Honesty and positivity.
I don't have a good work-life balance at the moment.
