"I was ready for a change," says the Cologne-based entrepreneur, who previously worked as German communications director for global brands, in an interview with Wallpaper magazine. "The demands of my role were becoming more commercial and I also had concerns about the indiscriminate amount of pieces being produced," she says, "so I decided to go my own way." As she contemplated her next move, she became increasingly involved with contemporary art. "I knew I wanted to do something that combined art and fashion, and it was clear to me that I wanted to realise the production in Germany."
