About me

Here are a few things that might tell something about me: I`m a daydreamer, a believer, a picture-taker, a lover of stories, a writer and reader, a fashion-lover, a freelancer, and a forever student.

Studying Fashion has opened my eyes in many ways. Not only in regards to taste and style but also in terms of how I see the world. 

As a Fashion Design student, I started working as a writer and photographer for the daily newspaper in my hometown. Ever since, I`m grateful for the chance to encounter people, places, and events, I wouldn’t otherwise meet or see if it wasn’t for my job.  

Wolfgang Joop employed me as a pattern cutter at his luxury label Wunderkind which was based in the beautiful lakeside mansion “Villa Rumpf”. That was one of the opportunities in life that are almost too good to be true.

Because I wanted to live in London, I took a pattern-cutting job in the cheap high street sector of the fashion industry. Very fast-paced work in a shabby warehouse place yet filled with lovely people and a lot to learn.  

Due to my high-street experience, I learned about the exploitation habits in the fashion industry. Because I wanted to be more flexible and independent anyway,  I started working as a freelancer.  Plus, I studied journalism and went to the London College of Contemporary Arts to learn Fashion Photography.

Currently, I´m mainly photographing and writing for magazines and papers, and occasionally I work on patterns and designs. I am living in London/UK and in the Outletcity Metzingen/Germany.
