I am Anne, a graduate fashion designer fashion designer based in Berlin. I successfully completed my diploma in Fashion Design at the prestigious Fachhochschule Trier in 2006 and have since amassed an impressive 16 years of professional experience.
Since the beginning of 2022, I have been working as a dedicated freelance designer, developing collection concepts and designing fashion as a freelancer for my clients in the baby/toddler, outdoor and activewear sectors.
I see fashion as a language and form of expression of mood and personality but also function and protection. This is especially true for outdoor and activewear. In these segments I was able to acquire the majority of my professional expertise and also find here the most exciting combination of „form and function“ for me.
My love for the outdoors has long prompted me to rethink my consumption habits and lifestyle. In line with the principles of „RECYCLE, REDUCE, REUSE,“ I’ve shifted away from fast fashion towards second-hand and green fashion as a consumer. But even in my role as a designer, I have the desire and goal of contributing to reducing the negative impact of the clothing industry on the environment and people.
In fact, approximately 80% of a garment’s ecological footprint is determined during the design phase. Through thoughtful, timeless design, sustainable materials, short supply chains, and demand-oriented production under fair working conditions, we aim to create a value chain that aligns with our responsibility towards our environment.
