Su Beyazit was born in Adana, Turkey, a region just above the eastern Mediterranean. She left her native country at the age of five and spent the rest of her youth in North Carolina. 

Su was raised in a non-traditional Turkish-American upbringing. In the summer of her junior year in high school, she attended Rhode Island School of Design and finished a prestigious summer program focusing on fashion illustration.

Su moved to New York City to attend Parsons The New School For Design. During college, she focused her studies on Fashion Design. In the fall of 2012, Su has opened the boutique, Su’juk in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. Her dream was to create a space where all creative types are welcomed. She lives in Brooklyn with her two dog's June & Astro, and recently launched Su'juks first line of candles inspired by the Mediterranean coast of Turkey.
