After completing a BA in Fashion Design from the University of the Arts in Berlin in 2018, Antonia Schreiter left the capital to pursue an internship in New York, at the runway office of German luxury fashion house Hugo Boss. “It was not as commercial as the brand looks,” she says of the environment. “They used to have showpieces back then and it was an amazing experience. The team was so cool and they would let me do anything. It provided me with an essential toolbox and it boosted my confidence,” she adds with a proud smile. It was thanks to this series of nurturing educational foundations and inspiring industry experiences that Schreiter was announced semi-finalist at the H&M Design Awards in 2019 before joining the MA Knitwear program at the Institut Français de la Mode in 2020. Soon after graduating from higher education in April 2021, Schreiter will be embarking on an internship at Givenchy.
