Tina's unique style is joyful, playful and - most of all - colorful!
Tina is a truly artistic soul.
Her unique style is joyful, playful and - most of all - colorful!
She started her career in advertising, developing international campaigns after graduating from Hochschule der Künste, Berlin. This trained her visual and verbal imagination. She then began painting large, expressive pieces of art that now also influence her daring fashion design. A dress, to Tina, is like a canvas, upon which she loves to create a modern and wearable picture.
Tina also writes books. She has successfully published numerous novels and short stories. Known for “Männer sind wie Schokolade” and “Ich pfeif' auf schöne Männer," her works are mainly romance novels from a woman's perspective. Two of her novels have been made into films for German television. Her newest book, "Der Kuss" ("The Kiss") will be launched in April 2020.

On a personal note, Tina describes herself as a real Berliner. She was born and grew up there and admits to still having a suitcase in the city. Today, she is at home in edgy London, Milan and New York.
"London is my dream home city," she says. "I'm so happy here as London is inspiring, exciting and so full of culture. Milan has soul, passion, fashion, design and great food. New York is a planet in and of itself, where everyone can be what they want to, without being looked at in a funny way. It is a restless, exhausting city with a lot of noise, but it is also a cauldron - full of ideas and energy and color. Berlin as my hometown is also very colorful, so I always feel at home, forever!”
This touches on the importance of color in her life. “Gray and beige are far too boring for me! That’s why I add color to my everyday life,” says Tina. Regardless of whether this color is woven into the threads of a dress that she wears, is playfully shaped across the canvas of one of her paintings, or is knitted through the yarns of her collection, color brings an aura of life and energy to everything around her.
“Sometimes I’m serious, sometimes not,” she reveals, indicating her bubbly personality. At the same time, she maintains a quintessentially beautiful fusion between intelligence and innocence.
