When she was only 13 years old, Kerstin Krause already had a huge interest in fashion. As there was not much choice in the 1980’s she learned early on how important creativity is. Today, she has her own fashion label: Kerstin Krause Madrid. “It has always been my dream to have my own label,” says Kerstin Krause, who studied at the famous Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. “I wanted to gain experience and was lucky to get placements with Geoffrey Beene and Mary McFadden in New York.”That is where she first learned the craft behind quality fashion. Today, Krause produces her creations in Germany and Italy and searches for the best fabrics worldwide.
