About Olcay Gulsen
Born and raised in the Netherlands, Olcay Gulsen has always had an eye for business and a heart for fashion. At 14 she used to cut up her mother’s clothes to create her own version of Jean Paul Gaultier’s corsets and to this day she has transformed her fashion label SuperTrash into a global success, recently opening stores in London and New York.
Driven and determined, Olcay’s signature style of sharp tailoring, natural confidence and sexy feminity was immediately apparent in her first collection launched in 2004. Following the label’s instant success, she has been awarded Best Fashion Entrepreneur at Marie Claire’s Prix de la Mode; been a guest judge on Holland’s Next Top Model; a jury member on the Dutch Project Catwalk and a mentor on The Face.
Olcay divides her time between Amsterdam, London and New York, constantly seeking business opportunities and ensuring SuperTrash is ahead of the fashion pack. To date she has collaborated with American Express, Philips, Samsung, Mattel and Bavaria, while her collections are always fresh, always feminine, with an abundance of SuperTrash attitude.
