Apprentice clothing designer in her mother Marianne’s haute couture atelier
She saw the very first fashion show just two weeks after she was born.
Scrambling allowed … even as a baby, Lara and her twin sister Tia collected the “Güfeli” … or “Ouch” needles from the floor and stuck them into the pincushion.
“Walked along – hung up” .. her first steps at the mother’s fashion shows were collecting clothes and hanging them on the hangers.
Since then she has dressed up her dolls, again and again with her own creations. Her second passion is drawing.
The training at IDM in Spiez and Thun near Bern began in 2018 with your first own fashion show with “Creative Kollektiv” in the Swiss capital Bern.
