BERLIN – After Paris, London & Barcelona, here I am. In December last year, I moved to one of the most attractive neighbourhood of this dynamic metropolis: Kreuzberg. This cosmopolitan, underground part of Berlin inspires me. Its history, architecture, fashion, music, nightlife, street art and residents create the perfect atmosphere for cultivating creativity.
I started my personal style blog in August 2014 and for me the backdrop of my pictures are as important to me as the photo subject matter, that’s why I am so excited to organize photo shoots all around the city. Berlin is full of natural backgrounds including graffiti, quirky or abandoned places that you can ́t find everywhere.
In the three months I have lived here, I have noticed that the Berlin fashion scene is so eclectic, made up of many types of trends (underground, vintage, casual). By walking everyday on the street, going to vintage markets or attending Berlin Fashion Week, I would say that Berlin is fast becoming a hot spot for sustainable fashion.
You can find innovation on every corner and designers here have become pioneers in the concept of sustainability. You can also find it in the Berlin lifestyle, in bar, restaurant and club interiors. It is pretty impressive to see how people can give a second life or reinvent the use of everything.
Like Berlin, my personal style is eclectic and here I can be more creative than ever. My main inspirations in my everyday looks are oversized using a combination of pieces from the past with new products. I have struggled to find exactly what I want so I recently started designing and making oversized dresses for myself. It is one on my favourite passion and maybe someday it will grow into something more.
Wish me luck xx
