With over 4+ years of experience as a fashion designer in the luxury sector, I have held the position of Head of Designer at Jean Paul Knott and worked as a freelance designer for major brands like Ellassay. Drawing on my background in philosophy, I approach creativity with a focus on thoughtful aesthetic reflection and conceptual depth. Throughout my career, I have collaborated closely with creative teams to oversee every phase of the design process, from the initial concept to final execution. My expertise lies in tailoring, inclusive experimental garment construction, and collection coordination Versatility is one of my key strengths, as I thrive on exploring new horizons of expression and creativity. Constantly conceptualizing fresh ideas, I value human-centered exchange and believe in creating connections that extend beyond the realm of fashion.
