After six years in the fashion department of NZZ am Sonntag / Stil and her studies in Social and Communication Sciences at the University of Lucerne she started to work as a self-employed fashion stylist and writer for national and international clients. Her knowledge of the fashion industry and her aesthetic education has a strong foundation. Looking for a new challenge, Kathrin Eckhardt decided to start designing her own, all handmade Studio line with a social impact in Ghana.

Kathrin Eckhardt Studio believes in social empowerment, inspired products, and a united world. It is with this mindset, that the Swiss fashion stylist founded her label in Ghana, West Africa, two years ago, far from the safety and comfort of her home.
The Swiss Designer combines contemporary European designs with African craftsmanship, using local resources and crafts to create a collection that unites both worlds. The limited resources and possibilities of West Africa are what the collection thrives on.
