Following school she was so lucky to be able to travel the world for one year and enjoyed observing different cultures, which broadened early her mind perspective on fashion with a natural eye.
Returning back she started a 3 year apprenticeship in a global Executive Search Consulting firm and then came to Louis Vuitton (LVMH Group) as an internship at the German marketing department. The department gave her the opportunity to develop great marketing projects for fashion, jewelry and watches, and to narrow down what she really wanted to do, which was work for an international house of tradition and high-quality products.
