I’m wearing a shirt by American Apparell, trousers from italy and All Stars. I enjoy wearing bright colors, pink expresses my feelings. The trousers I bought in Italy years ago – the fabric and the extraordinary cut appealed to me. These clothes are very comfortable and that is important for me.
I like clothes if they have their own style – exciting shapes, elegance, colorfulness. It’s got to be ‘fresh’ – not so much H&M. Fashion is what the industry proposes. And I don’t like to adapt that. I like unique pieces, every piece I own is a favorite one. I like to provoce with my outfits!

I’m wearing a suit by Pianoforte di Max Mara, I bought it one month ago in Kleidermarkt at Bergmannstr in Kreuzberg, I own the black tricot for about 15 years now, the jewellery is all fake. My shoes are 2nd Hand from Berlin or Cologne – I don’t remember, my stockings are either H&M or KaDeWe. I like to shop mostly vintage, but also in H&M, Zara, Mango, Benetton or KaDeWe (but only stockings or underwear, or shoes if I’ve got the money). I’m inspired by high fashion magazines, movies from the twenties to the sixties, or by women like Debbie Harry, Kim Wilde and so on – actually by movies, photographs, postcards, art, women on the streets, theatre… My style emphasizes my personality: nostalgic, feminin, playful – I’m here on the flewmarket with my boyfriend, so I wanted to look womanly and a little sexy.
Fashion and what I am wearing means a lot to me. I know, that I’m involved in a cityscape and, if you want, a worldscape. I want to meet my claim of aesthetics, if I am dressed lousy, i feel weak and minor. Which is ok sometimes – but fashion shows who I am, a personal style means to have an opinion, to make a statement and to know who I am. It’s a awareness of life.
