My name is Didem and Dido is only the abbreviation of it.
Once I had a blog named metroboulotdido but I’ve decided to bring it back to life by my new tinker tailor brand.
Dido Suu’s story began at my very late 32nd age in this strange world. After working in PR and Cinema, to feed my traveler soul I’ve decided to take a sabbatical year and focused on only what I enjoy. First I created a collection of dresses, skirts and pants just for fun and personal usage. I wore my handmade dresses at my friend’s weddings and was just proud of my unique fashionista outfit in the house. Great right?
Well no! I couldn’t get away with just being proud of it. I got loads of compliments and encouragements and of course orders! It motivated me of course and I forgot about myself and started to make dresses for my friends.
Soon my antique manual Singer sewing machine from 1895 was falling short on my skills and I got myself a new professional one. I began to subscribe to the magazines. Getting new patterns everyday. I created designs from photos, became almost an expert about fabrics… And here I am with my Retro styled perspective on life and new business that I got.
I really hope that one day every and each one of you would let yourself go and do whatever you enjoy to do in life! Happy shopping! Please do not hesitate to write me any comments about the shop, me or my story! Enjoy!
