  • "She makes one dream come true after another" - Der Tagesspiegel 2015 (German broadsheet) I am an international stylist, art director and events producer. I have a background in music journalism and music PR and events management, and 9 years in the styling and creative industries creating presence for major brands and individuals. From 2008 - 2013 I was Manager and Head Stylist at London's cult boutique Prangsta Costumiers, where my past clients include Kate Moss, Pearl Lowe, Richard Branson, Rob da Bank, Anna Friel, Rhys Ifans, Danny Goffey, La Shark, The White Stripes, Florence and the Machine, Charlotte Church, Shakespeare's Globe, White Mischief, Bestival, BBC1 and 2, Monkey Kingdom Productions and more. I am also an artist, a keen socio-cultural researcher, a confident public speaker and radio presenter. I am dedicated and ambitious, I really enjoy developing the vision of a project with a strong team and creating magic. I have strong creative, administrative, sales and negotiation skills. My styling combines classical elements, an indepth knowledge of period and vintage styling with a visionary imagination, and cutting edge contemporary knowledge of trends and brand communication. I sensitively facilitate the wildest dreams of my clients, liasing between the backline production, the audience, and the goal of my patrons to cohesive and dynamic effect. I have managed my own theatre company and entertainment productions between Berlin and London since 2013. I accept bespoke commissions for creative direction, styling, music videos, entertainment services, marketing communications, performance art, conceptualisation and event production.
