I was born in 1980 in Tuttlingen, the south of Germany. I studied fashion merchandising and international trade & marketing at Fashion Institute of Technology in New York.

Through internships at Escada, Laurèl, Hugo Boss, St. John Knits, and my first full-time role at Brioni, I could learn how a retail operation really works.

Then, on the agency side, as Head of Marketing and PR and Client Relationship Director at Elemental Design and Liganova, I saw and learned about the other side.

In 2010 I began my work as a self-employed Designer and Creative Director, working with different brands, always with the task of adding life and excitement to their brand and retail experiences…

I am also the Designer and CEO of the sustainable, affordable-luxury womenswear label Nicola Metzger (www.nicolametzger.com).

It’s great to meet you!
