How did you become interested in millinery?

After studding fashion design I become more interested in 3D object art work like hat making.

Where and why did you learn millinery?

In the fashion school Hetzendorf in Vienna.

How long have you been a milliner for? Where else did you work? Who do you make hats for?

I started my business in Vienna in 2001 and my second atelier was open in Venice in 2003. I worked a lot for theatres in Austria and Germany.

Where do you get inspiration for your designs?

In my head, on the street, talking with friends, old films, books, Venice and travelling.

What has been your most enjoyable commission?

Work for my friends, designers and film would be Anna Netrebko.

How would you describe your style of hats?

Young, independent and stylish.

Who do you make hats for?

This is what I love most about hat making – every costumer has his/her one wish and I have to deal with it. So there is no limit to my fantasy! For my own collections I prefer leather, feathers, swarovski stones!

Any other interests?

I’m a workaholic! I never stop thinking of hats! I enjoy doing inspiring things like travelling, painting, partying.
