At the newly opened Bazaar Project in Aventura Mall, every single product is carefully sourced by Yeliz Titiz, its cosmopolitan and uber well-traveled owner whose keen eye for unique décor pieces, fine jewelry, and apparel bars none. At Titiz’ new Aventura Mall boutique, that joins two other in Miami, the offerings include whimsical curations, some available only at the center. This global atelier reflects Titiz’ own proclivity for fusion of many influences and styles (she does come from a family of retail giants and has worked in fashion before embarking on this enterprise.) During your visit at Bazaar Project, you may find yourself equally amused by a collection of Slim Aarons books, quirky hair accessories, and cheeky home décor items.
Titiz’ passion for the curatorial pursuits has brought her around the world in search for the perfectly unique and unusual statement pieces, be it for your living room of your jewelry box. Some of her recent merchandising scores include Sebastian Cruz Couture pocket square, Seletti Italy, Shiraleah clutch Bags, Shiraleah home, Square foot kilims and Dhurries, Sura Jewelry, and Wicked candles. Titiz’ mission is driven not only by the necessity to provide something different to her loyal fanbase. She is deeply proud to provide a platform to many worldwide artists and artisans who look for just for this kind of exposure. Here are some of the décor stand outs Titiz believes would look fabulous in any room.
