Saying that according to a global survey conducted by PwC's consulting company Strategy& and Hypebeast, more than 60% of street fashion consumers are under the age of 25, Korkmaz stated that one of the new and important export markets is the internet. Korkmaz continued his words as follows: “Half of this audience buys their products from brands' websites and spends an average of 200 dollars on a single product. For this reason, we will expand our market by investing in technology and supply chain while maintaining traditional sales. I believe that street fashion is the new locomotive of the textile industry.”
