womenswear made in Berlin

As a child I loved to draw and as a teenager I was always interested in fashion. In the late nineties I identified myself a lot with labels experimenting a lot with materials and cuts. To make fashion was just a girl’s dream and that’s why I started to study french first.

I came to a point in life where I missed the practical part very much and I decided to try and pursue my life’s dream – and it worked out at the very first attempt! I started studying fashion design first in Germany and later at the Designskolen Kolding in Denmark, and one of my favorite designers, Henrik Vibskov, was teaching there as a guest professor! The year in Denmark was very inspiring and a big motivation. Scandinavian fashion was a revelation to me. When I was there to study in 2006 I felt for the first time that people understood what I felt, when I did modest clothes with monochrome colours without being determined on being classical. The experiences which I collected in Denmark have a great influence on my design until today.

Art and fashion have continuously floating borders for me. One will be recognized and producing the other. I’ve never been conscious about consuming fashion. Instead I’ve always been influenced by art and architecture. Especially in modern or deconstructive architecture I found ideas which are inspiring, lines and perspectives are perfect for adapting onto clothes. To do timeless fashion could be an aim but on the other hand it’s an utopia because we are living in a certain time and we are influenced by this time. Garments were transformed into something different in the very moment when somebody puts it on. I like this idea a lot when i send my pieces around the globe.

Nowadays I have my own little studio in Berlin, designing and making clothes for men and women with love care knowledge and craft.
