The foundation of Roman brand was built in 1980 by Turgut Toplusoy. Mr. Toplusoy, who previously had been carrying on business in the field of building construction sector, entered into the textile sector when a friend exhorted him to do this, and opened his first store at Nisantasi Rumeli Street under the name "Roman". Mr. Toplusoy got acquainted with the sector soon, and firstly offered the
products of many different brands to his customers in his store. Mr. Toplusoy, who saw the future in the textile sector, rented an atelier in which he could make his own productions at Sisli Osmanbey, the textile center of that period. At that time, brand collections were created by making patters of the products selected from fashion magazines.
