“I’m a blogger and photographer from Germany.

“I started photography when I was 7, so I was always really creative because my mum was always painting.”

It’s getting a tad warmer here in New York, I mean it still feels nothing like Milan or Paris or Barcelona when I was there a few weeks ago, but nonetheless I am able to walking around not looking like the michelin man. Yes to lighter coats and jackets at long last!

I love Sarah’s leather jogger pants here, teamed with her fresh white Adidas Stan Smith sneakers and that white and grey fur cape, it’s somehow super chic and casual sporty all at the same time, definitely the perfect vibe for spring.

Laura – Paris

Every once in a while, I hit a road block and I want to try something new, but instead of doing a 180, I want to go a tangent and explore it. I’ve had this idea for a little while now and since Paris fashion week, I decided to just go for it, give it a try.

For me, fashion and people are just about my favourite things to photograph, but sometimes it’s hard to go beyond the surface, so I’m trying something new. I want to delve deeper, I want to tell stories, your stories. So without further ado, this is Laura and some of her stories.

What was your first memory of fashion?

“When I was 11, I drew this dress that I really wanted to wear myself, my mother said why don’t you try to make it more like the ones in this fashion magazine, so instead of looking at princesses stuff, I started looking at fashion magazines.”

“I really like colours and prints and the fact that you can play with light and shade, that’s my inspiration in fashion.”

“I got the bracelet from my boyfriend’s grandmother, his grandfather handed it down to me because he really likes me and wants me to feel like a part of their family. It fits very well with the gold crystal ring I got from my own grandmother, they go great as a pair, so it’s like me and my boyfriend’s families are great together.”
