If you are into movies like I am then am sure that you have watched a few where the character finds himself entering some sort of flying object & being transferred into a parallel world that he never knew existed. And that's exactly how I felt when I attended the recently ended 'Basel World 2018', an Exhibition for the Watches & Jewelry industry that takes place every year in Spring. Manufacturers of Watches, Jewelry & precious stones take this opportunity to introduce their new...

Now that Spring has decided to play 'Hide & Seek' with this year, I guess that it's wise for us to also try & sneak in some color into our outfits. Of course we still have to keep ourselves warm but also try to brighten up the dark days that are still upon us.

I got yet another wonderful opportunity to attend a networking event organized by the Global Digital Women which was this time hosted by the 'Kale & Me' Company. This is a company based here in Hamburg which was founded by 3 friends back in May 2015, that produces & sells 'cold pressed' fresh juices. They have been able to penetrate the market & are doing an amazing job not only here in Germany but also in Austria, with plans to increase their production & products to reach an...

Everyone & almost all quotes tell us to leave the past behind us. I am a big believer in that but I think to every rule, there is an exception & in this context (Fashion), there is much to be learnt from the past. Like for example, 'Hammer/Harem pants', this is a piece of clothing that has existed since the era of 'Aladdin' (I know that he's not real, but stay with me on this one). And when you move along you will see it being quite 'in' in the 1990's, as I clearly remember watching in...

There were days when I would accompany my husband to the hardware store & show very little interest in what he was there to look for or to buy. But in the last couple of months, I have suddenly started initiating such visits (to his surprise) as I try to keep up with my DIY projects whose results I can't wait to share with you.

Nothing makes me happier than seeing my client looking amazing in a custom outfit that I‘ve made for them. But what most people don‘t understand is the amount of time & work that is invested in doing just one outfit of their own design . Right from the beginning from making the appointment, taking measurements, studying the design that they want (usually a photo of an outfit that they‘ve seen on the internet), creating a specific sewing pattern, fabric choice, purchasing of all the...

If only my work week would start on such a high note every time. I won the 'Fashion Designer of the Year 2017' award at the African Women in Europe Award Ceremony that took place in Berlin on Saturday. I am still on 'Cloud 9' & so so grateful to God & to everyone who in one way or another have been with me on this amazing journey. This award is not only mine but for us all. Thank you all so much.

A high waisted skirt teamed up with a form fitting top & some high heels to finish up the look is the outfit idea that I had in my head when I woke up. But later this is how I looked when I left the house...

Fun facts about the Parliament: The open & inviting architecture has vast glazed facades which enable visitors to look over the shoulders of Members of Parliament at work in their offices. It's exterior constructed between 1884 & 1894 by the architect Paul Wallot, has remained largely unchanged. It is energy efficient in several ways such as, the cone-shaped funnel that extends from the cupola of the building into the plenary chamber reflects glare-free daylight into the chamber through...

There will be absolutely no twirling for me in this dress, well, not unless I have on some tights with it. I had some fabric left over from an order & decided to make my first wrap dress, which turned out a bit short but quite fun too.
