About me
Interested in innovation and the analysis of disruptive shifts within the retail landscape, I report on everything from new store concepts to digital commerce and exciting consumer engagement strategies. With a background in visual communications and brand strategy, I have worked as a fashion stylist, visual strategist and social media manager, accumulating sound industry acumen. Holding an MA in Fashion Retail Management from London College of Fashion, a Diploma in Womenswear Design and a BSc in Economics, my passion lies in the amalgamation of contemporary design, retail and visual communications. Born and raised in Austria, I lived in Paris before returning to London.
