Rifat Ozbek (b. 1953) is the designer behind the Ozbek labels. He was born in Turkey, but left for London as a young man. He worked for Walter Albini and the Monsoon store before starting his own label, Ozbek, in 1984. His clothing often has touches of the exotic.
The Future Ozbek label, a ready-to-wear line, dates from 1991. Most recently, Ozbek has worked out of Milan, as designer for the Pollini label, a position he has held since 2003.
