As the daughter of a New Yorker Broadway actress and a german stage manager, Layla Mueller’s childhood took place behind the scenes of a huge cultural industry. That is where her enthusiasm for costumes and fashion began.
In 2014 Layla gathered extensive experience in the New York fashion industry. The fashion metropolis inspired her to many new projects and awakened in her the desire for new stations outside of Berlin. As a result, she completed an international semester in Finland at the Helsinki Metropolis in 2015 and at the same time took the position of Assistant Producer at the first Helsinki Fashion Week.
Layla received her Bachelor of Arts in Fashion Desing beginning of 2016 and is currently doing her Master of Arts for MFashion Design at the University of Applied Scienes Berlin. Her fascination for art and fashion motivate her every day to realize her thoughts, ideas and passion for fashion and design.
Her international and multicultural background is reflected in her actions and works. Teamwork and new, exciting co-operations are very important to her.
Layla is currently working as a “designer in residence” at the Berlin design studio “ElektroCouture”. There she develops her “The syma line” collection using innovative design techniques. The first prototypes will be presented at Fashiontech during the Berlin Fashion Week in January.
