"Fashion is Vakko” has long been the motto of this ultra-chic Turkish style house. Vakko's beginnings were modest. It began in 1934 when Mr. Vitali Hakko started small millinery called “Şen Şapka” (Merry Hat). As the business expanded the name was changed to Vakko and the company began to produce haute couture scarves of Turkish silk, cotton and wool. When the first Vakko store was opened at Beyoğlu, Istanbul in 1964, it was the biggest store that had ever been built there to date and made Vakko the biggest brand-name phenomenon on Turkish clothing scene.
Vakko has continued to develop its wares by creating a line of home decor, clothing line for men, perfumes “V de Vakko” (for men), “Katia” (for women) and “Piu Piu” (for children). The Vakko Company also opened “Vakkorama” stores that cater to younger tastes and is home to Power FM, a radio station that focuses on international pop music. One of the traditional gifts that Turks give to one another is a box of chocolates or candies wrapped in style. If you want to impress someone, choose from Vakko's wide assortment of chocolates, which always have that perfect finishing touch-of-class which is the trademark of Vakko's packaging.
