To get to know you a little bit better, we start with some easy questions. What is your favorite place? All places where you have the possibility to see the Milky Way, such as the Joshua Tree National Park, CA, USA.

Any secret talents? I always try to make the best out of a situation and try to be as happy as possible. My motto is always: May the best of my todays the worst of my tomorrows.

Who is your favorite model and why? I do not really have a favorite model. I admire those who never give up and keep on working hard, even when they are struggling.

Have you ever had a funny encounter at a fashion show or a shooting? At a fashion show: The zipper on my pants broke. But the designer was quite relaxed and the pants were then simply glued on my body with tape. Actually, nobody noticed this because the show must go on!

The most exciting shoot you have ever had? At the last Swissinstameet I spontaneously stood in the fountain of the Zurich main station. It was freezing cold but really cool!

What does sustainability mean to you? For me sustainability means social and economic responsibility. We should treat the world and our fellow human beings as carefully as possible. Everyone can make their own contribution, and no one should talk their way out of it. Change begins with each individually.

What do you think is special about Un-Dress? Un-Dress proves that sustainable fashion is in no way inferior to conventionally produced fashion.

Thank you very much Nele, for taking the time to have a short chit-chat with us. We are looking forward to see you at Un-Dress2019 on Wednesday, 17th April.
