A new creative outlet

.Art has always been at the center of Mira Lou’s life. Born and bred in Berlin, she started practicing different types of art at a very young age. As a child, she used to draw and craft with her mother, which was critical for developing her creativity. Still, she was truthfully able to express herself only when she discovered photography as a teenager. She cultivated her artistic perception by visiting galleries and museums, getting inspired by how different artists communicated through their work. She also connected online with people who shared a similar photography style as hers, which shaped her own work’s identity.

Focus on the Now

When asked about her opinion on fast fashion and what she would change about the fashion industry, she responds “Instead of new trends every year and new collections every week, we should focus on pieces that are timeless and can be worn throughout a lifetime.

The modern fast fashion industry produces tons and tons of waste that pollutes our environment, exploits humanity and brings no genuine happiness. However, she admits that “focusing on sustainability is a luxury” and discusses the necessity for wealthy people to invest their money in “sustainable, fair and ethical labels”, as she sees it as “the only weapon we have against the dirty fashion industry.”

Lastly, as an ultimate lesson, she insists, “As you almost never know how something is going to play out, I would always advise to focus on now”, as she firmly believes that “concentrating on what is currently important to you is always the best option” and that following a passion is never a waste of time.
