After this, Bengi Söney decided it was time to built her own brand and founded Modalogy in year 2015. Yet, after a short while of her company’s foundation, she was pregnant with her second child and brought her daughter Yaz into the world. She wanted to put off her dreams at Modalogy for a while and take care of her children. After a three-year break, Bengi Söney decided to continue with Modalogy from where she left off in year 2018. She started by building her own production site and then selling collections that she designed by herself and manufactured with great craftsmanship before selling them at her store in İzmir, Alsancak; on www.modalogy.com.tr shopping site and on Instagram.

With the belief that women need to take their places in employment in order to stand on their own feet; in 2019 she thought of adding crochet, and knitting to every collection in order to make use of women’s endeavors and include them in the economy. With this idea she started the “Handicraft Project”. By using the lacet and the crochet done by our women living in villages of İzmir in her collections; she aspired after helping our women in need, she made them feel the happiness that comes from being a part of production. Bengi Söney continues to meet with fashion-lovers under Modalogy’s roof with her Handicraft Project and new collections that she continues with every season.
