With more than 20 years of experience as a freelancer in fashion design, Sabine looks back at working for her own label and other brands. She focusses on sustainable systems and designs womenswear and knitwear developed in her Hamburg studio. Collections were presented internationally, for example at Paris’ fashion fair Who’s Next”. As not only the place of production plays a main role for her production but also the manner is key to her philosophy, workways include integrative approaches through working with social workshops and migrants since the very beginning.
Sabine has worked for the Hamburg State Opera, Hamburg Ballet and various film productions alongside her own designs to gain broader knowledge in costume design. She had the pleasure to work with Christian Lacroix, Swiss fashion label Akris or John Neumeier to implement historical and contemporary costume concepts.
Realising the importance of public relations and presentation skills for brands, Sabine additionally began to work in public relations and consulting for companies like Dior and German label JOOP!. Her holistic viewpoint influences her teaching intensely as she evaluates design concepts always from different angles.
