About Irene

Born and raised in a small village in Holland near Rotterdam, I completed a Bachelor education in International Business Administration at RSM Erasmus University. For my Master in Marketing Management I did a Master Exchange at the Luigi Bocconi University in Milan, where I could enjoy my love for fashion in courses on the history of fashion, management of fashion & design companies and related fields. After living in this exciting fashion capital for 1,5 years I moved to amazing Barcelona. What I love most in all creative industries is the concept of storytelling. Other than that I can fly and read minds. I hope you will enjoy my articles and feel free to leave comments!

By

Sweet, colourful candybars and lollipops are often used as an inspiration for hair, make-up and clothes.
