Timo, tell us a bit about your journey: What has drawn you into the fashion industry?
Clothing and self-expression have always been so important to me. As a kid, I would spend my time disorganizing my mom’s and grandmother’s closets, pulling looks and trying them on my friends and myself. I loved fingering through the pages of those seasonal catalogs and my mom’s fashion magazines. I adored using unconventional materials to create my own mini masterpieces.
It was always clear to me that I would have a future using my imagination and creativity.
Pursuing a degree in photography, I found myself injecting fashion in all of my photo work. I began styling for friends’ projects and ended up working as a stylist at an agency.
After some self-exploration, I realized more and more my passions laid in the design process and construction of garments. This is when I started to teach myself how to sew and things just snowballed from there.
