    another update, things are getting sooooooooooo good here for me: modepalast was a huge succes: sold a lot, got really good feedback and tons of compliments-from the organizer and the customer. apparently FRÖHLICH is such a good succes that the organizer got informed and they told a friend of mine that they were really happy they hosted FRÖHLICH and the media absolutely loved FRÖHLICH. so a big number of newspapers had ads for modepalast with one picture and that was mine………can you imagine. 90 designer over 300 photos and 1 was chosen and it was mine…………… but the good news dont end yet, so i won the “modepalast meets blickfang award” which means i dont have to pay for the next fair trade and this one is really big!!! had our 1st meeting for the fashion show yesterday-thats gonna be just fantastic- last year they had 30 000 visitors in 3 days…………..woow than i have another exhibition lasting 5 weeks in an art gallery were you can also buy the stuff-vernissage included. and finally 1 shop in vienna selling my stuff. a 2nd one is coming in autumn and who knows what happening next. i swear: i have no clue whats going on right now but its bloody amazingly great for me ;o) hope u r well and doing good business kisses

    Hi again. I guess we r both the same busy bees right now. I am almost finished and soooo good in time. You just have to see my newly translated homepage atwww.froehlichewelt.at go to the english version and than to NEWS there you can see an ultra super music video of a friend of mine (hes the artist) and he asked me to be one of the 2 designer who clothed everyone in the video. i think its so unusual to have a video clip on a fashion site- i love it. dont forget to turn on the voulume!!!!!!! how r u doin? do you have a webpage or somewhere i can admire your work? lots of sunny kisses from Austria-we have almost summer temperature here for 2 weeks now. its so beautiful!!!

    hi, thanks for your compliment! i get my inspiration from fabrics, daily life, films magazines ect ect. but i have to admit i love vintage. at the moment i am into 20ts, but i sooo love the 30s and 40s. of course some as i call them “historic” elemnts are also a fovorite of mine. the combination of these elements with the modern fabric, or jersey i think is great. its is comfy to wear at every time of the day but still different and stylish enough. how are you working? i mean with your fashion line? what are your next steps you take with “coming out”. i am at the moment in the middle of my coming out and i can tell you it is so difficult over here in austria. austria is the most bürocratic country i think which exists……..it makes everything so difficult. i startded selling to friends and their friends and that is still going really good. so i decided to take the next step. which is a sort of young designers confention-i know that this is not the right word for it, but the other word for it i just dont know right now……its in april and i am sewing my ass off right now to have sizes and more than one of each model, i have so far never done that and it is a lot of work!!!! all the best!! let me know how u r doin!! kisses
