Since then she continues to organize fashion shows in partnership with İzmir Chamber of Commerce. In 2018, she led a social responsibility project teaming up with Chamber of Architects and Turkish Society of Cancer.

The money raised was donated to Turkish Society of Cancer. Yeliz received an award from the society.Her ultimate passion is to bring out the natural beauty in women both by her designs and the natural materials she uses for the macrame wedding dresses.
