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.

I’m wearing a vintage trench that was passed on to me by my grandfather (at least 4 decades old). The raw jeans are by hells bells. I bought the boots (perfect for tight pants in the winter – fur inside) in moscow ( by Nazereno Giani).
In general I like small shops. Although I think that the swedish massproduction (for example) is a great thing, I would hate seeing every 5th person on the street wearing the same thing as I wear. I love second hand and all stores that sell special and limited edition sneakers. Not too long ago I discovered this store, that offers the most wonderful pants, on the Kastanienallee: Extrafein
The styles in old movies fascinate me. I also tend to take the advice of the Dior Homme designer Hedi Slimane for the youth: to copy the style of his fashion in one’s own way instead of buying it (I couldn’t afford it anyway).
I am very versatile and open in my style. I adore retro and chic as much as I adore practical and functional clothing. Although i would never categorize myself … it comes down to indie.
I realize, subconciously, fashion is very important to me. I don’t think too much about my daily outfit, but i could never leave home without being satisfied with what I wear.
