MYRIAM KAELIN

Born into a household with an attic full of 60ties high fashion clothing my mother had kept from her former fashion boutique I was very fortunate to grow up with a huge wardrobe to play around with. At the same time my sense of style was shaped by my parent's interior design store. Accompanying my dad to help him executing his job at various customers houses opened my eyes and sharpened my understanding of Design all over again. With my Fashion Design Diploma in my pockets, I first went to accomplish an internship in NYC and continued working in the textile industry as Head of Design and Creative Product Manager for more than 16 years. During my many intercultural business trips to mainly to Hong Kong, China, U.S., Turkey, Greece and Italy I have been able to acquire my skills in project management and specialized my knowledge in team leadership.
Based in Zurich Switzerland and Hamburg, Germany I work as an independent Illustrator & Art Director since 2017.
