“My grandmother was a seamstress with her own business, which meant that I have grown up in a house full of sewing machines. My mother was working on the assembly line in a textile factory when I was little, and she was always sewing something for me in between the breaks. So sewing has always been a part of my life, and it was the most natural thing to do. I was sewing clothes for myself as a teenager and was continually watching Fashion TV and reading fashion magazines.
When it was time to decide what I would do for a living, I was very concerned about getting a job. So I took the safe route (which I don’t regret) and studied medicine to become a doctor. After the long and laborious study, I was working in psychiatrical clinics in Germany and Switzerland.
But when I financially became independent, I had to realise that I am not doing the work that I am supposed to be doing. My talents weren’t being used, and I knew that my life’s purpose was to make people happy in a different way – through textiles and confidence in the way that they dress.
I learned about the CAD patternmaking software, and the ways that made to measure garments can be made today with the help of technology. When I was sewing with commercial sewing patterns, I could identify many problems. They rarely fit me, since I am tall and have a smaller upper body. The sewing instructions were hard to understand. It was very inefficient to copy and cutting the sewing patterns before laying them on the fabric. This is why I believe that Tailor Boxes are the best way to sew – you do only the part that you actually enjoy doing, which is sewing. Let us do everything else for you.”
