Long time when I asked help and I haven't even shared my experience. I was a lucky girl since I actually stayed in Nisantasi! Oh well how many lovely stores there but not only luxury also something for student budget. I really liked Cevahir shopping center, it was like paradise for me since I'm from small town where we don't have i.e. Mango. Unfortunately I didn't have much time for shopping as you can guess when I was travelling with a man... Even though Taksim was crowded I really did love it! And again I was super happy to bump into Top Shop etc.

I really do envy you, Snow-White. I want to go too! Istanbul is amazing city and not just for shopping. It offers something for everyone! I do miss Istanbul and wishing to stay there a few weeks in autumn.

A friend and I are going to be in Istanbul for 5 nights in about 2 weeks time. We will be staying in a hotel in Sultanahmet. Im not so bothered about international designers, but where is the best place to shop for clothes by local designers? Are there any specific ones I should be looking out for?

Any general tips in regards to restaurants/things to see & do etc, are also welcome
