Emre Çetinköprülü, born in Ankara, Turkey in 1980, studied Engineering in Cyprus. After realising he had a passion for design he explored Fashion and studied Fashion Design in LaSalle. Emre pursued a career in the film industry as he gained work experience as a costum designer. During this time he studied Drama to accompany his knowledge in the film industry. As a well travelled individual, he was exposed culturally, architecturally and graphically to design as a whole and decided to further his studies in design and moved to Milan to study Industrial Design at IED, Istituto Europeo di Design. Currently he is collaborating with Massimo Imparato at studioBAU.
