I was born in East Germany , where i completed a bachelor's degree in English and German Literature, followed by a 3 year training in weaving.
After the reunification of Germany i continued my education in fashion design and founded my own label "Kostümhaus", which became internationally recognized particularly in Japan and the U.S.
In early 2000 i began to work as a freelance stylist. In 2001 i was offered the opportunity to co-create and launch the independent lifestyle magazine "Qvest", where i held the position as fashion director until 2006. Between 2006 and 2009 i became the editor-in-chief of fashion for the widely distributed and popular celebrity magazine "Park Avenue".
I currently live in Berlin and Paris.
