About me

My first insight into fashion came when I was still in high school, through personal projects. Architecture shaped the way I am looking at clothing and ever since I have enjoyed going deeper into the system of fashion design and its techniques, shaping my vision of living sculptures. After an internship with the German designer Hannes Roether, I decided to learn from the heart of fashion and chose a traditional men’s tailoring apprenticeship. The three-year studies at the Opera of Stuttgart were most intense, with a strong emphasis on tradition and detailing. I enjoyed concentrating on technical skills, learning about the origin of all details and forms of a classical men’s suit in the process. My professional work experience in tailoring started at the National Opera in Paris. The first steps in French culture and the new language were as overwhelming as the costumes I was working on. I enjoyed the diversity of details and large volumes mixed with old habits of elegance. For more detailed manufacture, I kept working for a made-to-measure atelier for men, where I spent one year. The very stringent handling taught me a sensibility for accuracy and speed. To follow my desire for flexibility, I subsequently started to work as a freelance-tailor for the most famous fashion houses in Paris, such as Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga, Celine and Jean Paul Gaultier. There, while working in ateliers and backstage for various brands, I deepened my knowledge of female tailoring and cutting and gained precious insight into the fashion business. Most important, my passion for creating new forms of clothing and working together with people from different fields in art allowed me to develop personal projects at the same time. Along the way, I realized that there was a great need to turn this enthusiasm into a full-time occupation and to fully go into design. I thus applied to the Royal Fashion Academy, Antwerp, to be able to concentrate on my own universe and to improve drawing and research skills in order to develop the concepts for my collections and projects, which are globally inspired by space travel, reflections on human society, nature, and the universe itself. Within these three years of study, my interest in design and research grew exponentially. It was at this point that I decided to work on a private video presentation for my first collection, a great opportunity to work with people in different fields and get the most perfect result possible. I want to focus further on combining my skills in menswear in order to add value to design, fabric development, and accessory, as well as garment design within the experimental futurist fashion sector. I am confident that my creative enthusiasm, skills and my curiosity can make me a good fit for your design team and that, given the chance, I would be able to contribute much to it.
