Since 2016 SBNM is more focused on athleisure garments with a street twist and an energetic attitude. The style is comfortable, flexible and offers a refreshed groovy look with femininity and provocative sexy undertones to the fashion world. The story behind has emotional nostalgic roots, Newtro (new-retro). Positivity has a big interactive role between products and consumers. Garments are not products anymore, they have their own story and connection with its owner. Each customers has a different way to present it.

"Everything goes in cycles, aesthetics included. you see people get inspired and do their own twist on new or old things. No matter what decade your style comes. At the end of the day, it’s about getting out your expression in any form."

Mini Interview with Sebnem Günay

Tell us about your passion for fashion, how and when it started?
Actually, when I was child, I was more serious about business I did my first business plan at a very young age so I was always quite serious about having my own company. My father was an entrepreneur in textile sector so I had wonderful examples growing up. Then I felt the energy inside me, more aesthetical, artistic and colorful vise. So, I went with the flow. 


Your creations celebrate positivity and focus on “feeling good”. What are the other inspirations for your creations?
Now we are in a kind of mix reality world, artificial and real life, physical appearance and online appearance, which is actually not a real aesthetics anymore.
