Veronika is a stylist, costume designer, set stylist and personal stylist.

 

Already at an early age, she realized that style was her greatest passion. This led her to pursue her dream and study fashion design at the renowned Studio Bercot in Paris.

Veronka’s main interest has always been to create an authentic, minimalistic and yet timeless look. She has a innate sense for color and body shape.

Veronika’s concept is to create a style that essentially supports the person wearing the clothes and makes them feel comfortable. She quickly finds the perfect outfit for the scene and/or for the performer.

Despite often grueling hours on the set, she always keeps up her spirit, is good at finding quick solutions, is always perfectly organized and is an excellent team leader for her costume crew. Clients and crew like working with her.

She has more than 20 years of international experience, competence and a life-long passion for the commercials, film and fashion industry.

Then followed four years in Amsterdam, where she initially worked as a free-lance stylist for various Dutch magazines, but soon started her career as a costume designer for international feature film productions.

In 2001, Veronika returned to Germany where she started focusing on styling for commercials. Since then she has been dedicated to the advertising industry and by now knows the ins and outs of the business by heart.
