"I am a fashion perfectionist. As fanatical about detail as I am about quality, manufacturing, fit, fabric, trims etc..., sounds obsessive? Weill maybe! I like to call it my PASSION!"
Vera von Garrel first realised her passion for fashion at the early age of 5, using her mum's sewing machine, Vera would create handbags for herself and family and make clothes for their dolls and teddy bears. Eventually designing clothes for herself and school friends. She still has some of the original items, for keepsake.
Born in Germany in 1968 Vera von Garrel grew up in Muenster/ Westfalen where she attended the local school before enrolling at University of applied sciences - Fashion School in Hamburg, where her dissertation was honoured with the prestigious Wilhelm Lorch Stiftung Award.
On completing her studies, Vera worked at a number of ladies and children’s fashion companies.
In 1993 Vera von Garrel moved to Bangkok where she managed the buying and production of one of the biggest mail order companies in the world.
Later Vera returned to Germany to become the project manager of a joint venture between Quelle and Steilmann, which lead to her next promotion, ladies fashion wear buyer for Quelle.
In 1998 Vera was lured to London to become product/ production Manager for Killy and Nevica, Ski and Sports wear, where she also managed to fit in a fashion design and marketing course at St Martins College of Art and Design.
