Carina Schulte

WOMENSWEAR ASSISTANT DESIGNER

About me

I am an experienced and highly dedicated Assistant Designer ambitious of a new challenge. Former work experience gave me confidence in taking on responsibilities and understanding of a professional design process. While I was able to improve my aesthetic and technical abilities, 3-D visualizations and the development of details and finishings stand out to be my strength. I am most passionate about the need of constantly challenging existing definitions about identities within a group or as an individual through influences of people on the street, arts, contemporary culture, and history from which fashion draws inspirations as well as it is an influence.
