Su Beyazit : Founder, Buyer, Aries, Vespa Queen, Turkish, Curator & Dreamer
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.
Mariyam Nayeri : Vintage Curator, Scorpio, A Mother, Embracer of Life, Mexican, A Chef, Yogi
Mariyam Nayeri is the founder of La Paloma Vintage and co-curator at Su'juk. Lapaloma is a carefully curated selection that embraces an aesthetic that is all at once classic, earthy and disco. Silk, pleats, sequins and linen are the salt of the collection's earth.
Mariyam's love for fashion began amongst her grandmother's pillbox hats and mother's disco dresses. Placing your best (and perfectly groomed and polished) foot forward was a lesson instilled within her from an early age. Collars were starched, pleats were perfectly creased, and details mattered.
Her approach to selecting pieces channel these lessons into timeless, classic looks and silhouettes that are always the life of the party.
Denise Horton : Hair Stylist, Mama Bear, Pushing the Envelope, Aries, Ecuadorian, Chic, Jokester, Innovative
Denies Horton's vision as a hair stylist is to enhance and celebrate what nature has given you. By analyzing and understanding each individual’s hair, she identifies the distinct elements that make you you- and harness them to bring out your most elegant self.
Denise was trained in NYC in the advanced Japanese hair techniques, developing precision and attention to detail towards her craft. Over the course of her 10 years of experience, my natural curiosity led me to expand my career outside of the salon, and has been honored to work for photoshoots, film, and New York fashion week.
In continuing to broaden her experience, she traveled across the country spending two years in San Francisco working at one of the top Hair Salons, Population. This opportunity has given her the chance to work with a wide range of clientele.
Now she is back in New York City inspired and confident in her vision. Denise is excited to help you unlock your potential and fall in love with your most beautiful self.
