profile

With rotohrara design studio I am focusing on creating technical sportswear apparel and accessories.

Beyond, I am convinced of the enriching exchange between different disciplines of creativity, science and art. Every project is unique and in need of a carefully selected methodology, sensibly monitored processes and a curious mind to reach it´s very specific outcome.
I strongly appreciate a divers society! Sensitivity towards cultural property, gender identities and physical variety in fashion is an integral part of my work.

Dignity and responsibility towards our resources are key. I am commited to fight for a circular product process and to driving responsible material innovation especially in an high-tech environment.
Ensuring fair labor standards and treating everyone involved in the production chain with the same respect must be a given, with no excuses.

I believe in artistic inspiration, science, craftwomenship and in a designer's responsibility for creating desired futures!
