Ece Ege was born in Bursa, Turkey. In 1992, after graduating from Esmod Paris, she launched her fashion brand DICE KAYEK with her sister Ayse. Ege defines her style as modern romantic, an oscillating universe between tradition and modernity. She also uses contrasted materials on foldings as well as hand-made embroideries and rich and unique fabrics to create her timeless designs.
In 2009, it's Istanbul’s magnificent contrast, which has been Ege’s main source of inspiration for DICE KAYEK, that inspired her couture collection called “Istanbul Contrast”. The collection is inspired by the emblematic historic architecture and modern lifestyle of Istanbul.
''Istanbul Contrast'' has been presented in a number of places such as at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, the Istanbul Museum of Modern Art and the Amsterdam Museum.
In 2013, “Istanbul Contrast” collection was shortlisted for the Victoria & Albert Museum’s Jameel Prize III.
