for Berlin.

BIO.

"Growing up in a large family, I learned early on to sew and redesign the worn-out clothes of my older siblings and thus adapt them to my aesthetics and likings. Therefore, I was fascinated by textile art, design and crafts from a young age on. After I first completed pedagogical training and worked in that field, I found my way back to fashion and turned this passion into my profession and my calling. Pursuing my dream of creating fashion that is sustainable, fair, inclusive and urban, I studied fashion design in Berlin and set up my own fashion label StüveBerlin."
