The designer Anke Müller is known for beautiful fabrics and unusual model ideas with very special details, but also designs beautiful papers and motifs for her label "Cherry Picking". Since her jury activity in the show "Geschickt eingefädelt" she stands for creative design on her sewing machine. She gets inspiration for this at international trade fairs and thus translates the coming trends into current cuts and models.

"Totally different but still in perfect harmony"

Two creative minds behind "Pfeffer & Salz".

Pfeffer: Bettina Grüninger has been at home in the fashion industry for over 20 years and uses her days off to study fashion magazines at the HotSpot Cafés in Paris. As a lecturer at LDT Nagold (Academy for Fashion Management) and recruiter for international fashion companies, she passionately passes on her know-how.

Salz: Michaela Kranz is a store designer and has already worked as a trend scout for the textile industry. She combines her passion for fashion and interior design with a future-oriented perspective on good style and transforms her customers' surfaces into emotional experiences.

With the authentic kind of Pfeffer & Salz, they motivate and inspire their customers and train them individually in fashion, lifestyle, interior, staff, customer loyalty and enthusiasm.

Ann-Kristin Kassler is a color and trend enthusiast, with 10 years in fashion industry. During several roles in Berlin, New York and Hamburg, she honed her skill as a color and concept manager for several global fashion companies (from Anna Sui to TrendONE, Tchibo and Landor). In her new role as Head of Color & Trend Advisory for Coloro, she highlights the reasons why new product coloro will make your working day even easier (and brighter) when it comes to translating fashion and retail concepts into color specifications

Annemie is inspired by nature and cultures from faraway countries to which she has travelled extensively. Especially her knowledge in the field of felt is very broad. She likes to work with her own dyed wool and recycled materials. She loves to accept challenges and to create new things.

As a freelance editor, she designs and produces corporate publications and writes for sustainable magazines. "Sustainability" is her area of expertise. She has profound knowledge and many years of experience in the field of sustainable lifestyle markets, e.g. in the hobby & handcraft, fashion & design, home & household textiles, art & culture sectors.

Tanja Kosub is a stylist & set designer for advertising photography and specialises in product styling for fashion, beauty and interior design. In her special programs for sole proprietorships she coaches the topics photo, content & concept.

On the talksofa of the h+h cologne, Tanja Kosub talks about the topic "How product photos become customer magnets". Because: A photo generates our attention in a tenth second. Or not. In this fraction of a second we decide whether a click on the picture is worthwhile or not, whether we want to take a closer look at the product or not. Or not. In this fraction of a second we decide whether a click on the picture is worthwhile or not. Whether we want to take a closer look at the product or not. This happens completely unconsciously, with all of us.

Tanja shows how you can use her 5-step strategy to stage effective photos. Photos with a wow effect that immediately arouse the interest of your customers and tell a story. For your blog, your shop and your social media.
