Assembling was my first creative practice, and still is. For me things are exciting if they connect, physically or thought. And that is what A:ssemblage is all about. I worked as editor for art and design magazine Clam, a magazine in a transcultural context. My work as fashion writer and fashion editor was enriched by my period as a university lecturer of Stylismus at École supérieure des arts et techniques de la mode Art-University in Berlin, and lead up the field of fashion research. My fashion writing and editorials to sustainable and slow fashion have appeared in Interview Magazine, Quality Magazine, Welt am Sonntag, Icon, Clam Magazine Paris and Style in Progress, among others. 2019 I founded A:ssemblage inspired with the idea to set up a more responsible and impactful creative platform with focus on sustainable structures in fashion industry.
Communication and marketing are my passion. It is now more than 20 years that I advise companies to become a strong brand. Naming, claim development and storytelling are key tools for me. Sustainability and humane working conditions are a matter of course. Additionally, i am a mediator, motivational coach and advises HR development to meet the challenges of digitalization. A:ssemblage immediately excited me. I will support the development of external communication and help develop the strategy for attracting funding, cooperation partners and fellow activists.
