Annas real passion for shoes started no later than `99 during her Fashion Design Studies at the University of Art and Design `Burg Giebichenstein` in Halle/ Saale, Germany, when she did a project with the artist and Shoemaker from Vienna, Joseph Gerger. She received a scholarship and went to the `Cordwainers College` in London, right after her Design Diploma in Fashion in 2000. With her Postgraduate Degree in Footwear and Accessories, she returned 2001 to Germany, and started to work in the industry in 2002. First at the MSC Holding, where she started right with the position as a Ladies Shoe Designer. Traveling between production sights in Hungary, Italy, and Asia and living in Barcelona and Düsseldorf changed 2005, as she went to Hamburg to become Ladies Shoe Designer for Görtz. The participation in development and production took her then also to Italy and Spain. In 2008 she became freelance and is now working for various brands as well as on her own projects. Anna grew up in Halle/Saale, on the Baltic coast, lived `93 one year in Texas, Amerika, works in Germany and abroad, and is currently based in Hamburg.
