The designer, an AMD Düsseldorf graduate, honed her skills as a design manager for a small label for 5 years. Since 2016, she's been a freelance graphic and textile designer. In 2021, she launched SEASICK SWIM, where she designs everything herself. Her inspiration sparked during a 9-month stint in Melbourne, surrounded by fellow self-employed designers. She dreamed of this since her synchronized swimming days as a child, where she first designed swimwear for competitions with her professional seamstress mother.
