022 To Begin You Must Study The End

The CFFP Manifesto, Michaela Coel and Storytelling at X The Moonshot Factory

Hi friends,

have you ever wondered where sesame comes from? Spoiler: see the healing plant above.

An excursion to nature and a few hours more on my hands to let my thoughts drift away from the same old felt refreshing and resulted in some in depth reading on topics that usually fall through.

Next to Art Basel, Berlin Art Week and Fashion Weeks taking place, the world feels overwhelming again - in quite a good way.

Let me know what has been on your mind lately


Have a lovely Sunday,

Julia 🌱

The women behind Nove, Janina Waschkowski, did not only invent my most comfortable pamts made out of sustainable wool, she is also a great networker and communicator. I adore all her face time instagram stories, the lightness with which she takes her followers along while being transparent about the daily struggles of wanting to have it all is truly inspiring. And yes, the label was originally created for pregnant women but I would say it just embraces a simplistic take on high quality, everyday wear - “A modern woman‘s essential wardrobe evolving with her body through all stages of life” Make sure to pay her digital homes a visit: LINK.
