Your style is unique, what is style to you? It's all about being true to yourself. Wear whatever you want to wear: when it makes you feel good and confident you also radiate that to others.

White, black, brown, nude, beige - when did this universe of you started? Tough question – I think it was more like a process over the years. I never liked much color. And I've always been a minimalist in terms of style, fashion and decor. I need space to breathe and to be creative – that means focusing on the simple things and getting rid of everything that breaks it. So my environment became more and more the look of my visual language. I have always been into 70s design, movies, photography and architecture – I always wanted to incorporate that feel in my aesthetic – but with a modern and contemporary approach. And that's where I am now.


Have you ever been wearing anything in color? Sometimes I do, but very very rarely. I just took a look at my closet for you and I have one (!) blouse, which is black/white/red striped – but, to be honest, this is the only thing I sometimes wear which could be called at least as a bit of „colorful“ - the rest is neutral, black and white. But when it comes to accessoires, I sometimes like to freshen up my minimalist wardrobe with some statement pieces, like a snakeskin-inspired bag or some fun earrings. But wait, they're also most of the time in neutrals. Conclusion: I have one piece with a bit of color, haha.

Where do you collect your inspiration? From art, design and architecture. Going to an exhibition, discovering new designs and interiors/exteriors is the holy grail for me. Also traveling in the US is a huge infuence. Los Angeles and small desert cities are my favorite inspiration sources.

 When did your fascination for photography start? I always had that thing for visuals. During my studies at art school I worked interdisciplinary in different subjects and fields – from design and art history, to film studies and photography class: I think this mixture built a great foundation of what I'm doing right now. It helped a lot to learn theories about art and design, but it was also important to me to focus on practice.

What is a good picture in your eyes - and what is not? It's hard to say, because it always depends. But I like to capture moments and more uncommon things. Like things that reminds my of some kind of a feeling or which gives me a nostalgic vibe.


How did you frst get into the business? I started with a simple fashion blog, after my art studies to have something in between my applications. But I always wanted to create more. Do be more than a regular fashionblogger. Today I'm happy to combine my interest in fashion with my background in art.


Your 5 key items for the season? - a brown leather coat - chunky earrings by Monies (love that brand) - black sock boots - menswear inspired suits and soft leather gloves.


What do you never wear? Never say never, but I'm not that kind of a sporty girl when it comes to styles and fashion. I rarely wear anything activewear inspired, like sneakers, hoodies etc. And I'd never wear a backpack.

– When did your interest for fashion start? I always loved fashion. I think it really started as a kid, when my 4-year old me told my mother that I don't want to wear a specifc kind of jeans – I always knew what I wanted to wear.

In what way does your mood affect the way you dress? To be honest, I'm a warm-weather and summer girl. So my mood is always focused on the next travel to a warmer destination. When I'm in Germany, most of the time I stay at home editing my pictures, catching up with friends or go to meetings – most of the time I wear off-duty looks like all-black styles, black turtlenecks and simple chinos, but when I'm in the US or somewhere else I really love to dress up more.

What trends and colours do you believe in for the new season? Haha, of course neutrals! Especially brown-tones are perfect for fall. I really like soft suede overknees, long trenches and a lot of menswear inspired styles, like oversized blazers and tailored pants. Chunky big earrings are also still a thing – especially in gold or made out of resin


Flats or heels? I like both, but I'm more into heels

City tips for travellers: I don't spent that much time in the city I live in, because I'm always on the go. So most of the time I like to spend my free time at home or just going to the cinema. My favorite one is CAPITOL (, the interior is amazing! And you can have a cocktail before the screening, I really like that.
