Zerlina von dem Bussche, Fashion-Designer
Zerlina von dem Bussche runs "Sisi Wasabi"- a Berlin fashion label with stores in 11 countries.
Zerlina von dem Bussche founded the label with her college friend Carolin Sinemus in 2004. At the end of 2006 Zerlina was left to go it alone, and the 28-year-old hasn't looked back since. Last December her firm became a privately owned joint-stock company.
The recipe for success comprises innovative design, luxurious fabrics and high-quality workmanship - as well as being based in Germany. Her objective is clear - to conquer the international market. She counts Karl Lagerfeld among her professional idols.
The coming 2008 autumn/winter collection shows that Sisi Wasabi has the calibre to compete on the global fashion scene.
