The origin of AKAY is coming from the textile store which is managed by Mustafa Akay(1904-1950) in Samsun between 1920 and 1950. When he passed away, Rafet Akay(1934-1993, son of Mustafa Akay) opened a modest wedding dress store in İstanbul/Mahmutpaşa(1976). After Rafet Akay passed away, Ermiya Akay(1959-2013, son of Rafet Akay) took over and settled the company to İstanbul/Mahmutbey. AKAY became the premier wedding dress brand with it’s collections, forward projects and comfortable service knowledge. The brand is based in İstanbul. After Ermiya Akay passed away, AKAY is now leaded by Sezanur Akay(His sister), Mustafa Akay(His brother) and Candan Akay(His wife). AKAY symbolize the modern turkish women. AKAY has a mission to reward womens in their most beautiful days with AKAY experience coming from its past and AKAY culture reflected by brand.
As AKAY, with the project of “A Bride, Thousand Saplings” we donate a seedling donation certificate to our brides by donating seedlings to the forestation areas determined for Turkish forests in the light of environmental awareness and responsibility consciousness. Our project aims to create nature love to the foundation of your family. This project is only valid in our branches in İstanbul and Ankara.
