ABOUT

I am a 25 year old soon-to-be fashion designer, who is looking for the opportunity to make a career in the fashion industry.
I was born and raised on the countryside, or more precisely the island of Als. From there I was fed and raised with the best work attitude, which makes me the designer and teamplayer I am today.
My design process often takes root in art, culture or my own interpretations of trends and the society I am living and breathing.
I see myself mostly as a womenswear designer, who is very hard working, detail oriented and whom gives a flowing, handdrawn development with an end and result in the Adobe Creative Suite programme.
