To leave my home for the first job was a big step for me. However, the beautiful region, the Lake Constance, and the warm welcome from my team as well as the company made it feel right from the beginning. After three months I can say that it has definitely become my second home here.
My job combines creativity with economic thinking which is why no day is like another. I love to put our clothes in perspective and to develop new ways to present them. Furthermore, the company gives me the opportunity to grow both professionally and personally.
As one of the cooks of the company restaurant HOME at the Holy Fashion Group, I am responsible for the balance between the high demands we place on ourselves, wishes of our guests and economic aspects.
As a former Alfons Schuhbeck student, I claim to work for one of the best employee restaurants in Switzerland. In the past, I always wondered if there is an employer that allows me to be completely creative and still enjoy job benefits such as our company boat trips, generous discounts and sports courses.
It fills me up with pride to feel the trust of the employees for which I strive daily with the whole HOME-team.
“Success: you can make it happen“
When I joined the company, Strellson was just taking its first steps towards becoming a brand. You could reach out and touch the momentum, you could feel it, see it, hear it – and it was highly contagious! It was immediately clear to me that everything was in place to cause a stir in the years ahead. Not something inconsequential that would soon be forgotten.
But something really amazing. And I was there!
I don’t think it’s possible to describe this feeling. You feel electrified, you give everything you’ve got, and it’s only each time the company grows a little bit more that you realize what is possible. It’s fantastic. To be part of this team, to reach the top, to work towards success and achieve it – that’s the great adventure for me.
“What’s better than amazing?”
In December 2006, I was offered the chance to take on responsibility for the womenswear collection at windsor. as Head of Design. Head of Design? Responsibility? windsor.? Wow.
For me, windsor. meant pure elegance, confident understatement, unerring style. And, of course, tradition, tradition, tradition. As well as top quality. And to inject all that with new life, with modernity and a casual air to develop a new windsor.
Others have run away from lesser challenges. Others maybe, but definitely not me. I wanted this – I want this – absolutely. I started in July 2007. You can tell when you’re in the right place at the right time. And it feels amazing. More than amazing.
My first role at windsor. was an intern. After this fantastic experience I returned to Kreuzlingen and started my career as a design assistant. While I was finishing my bachelor thesis I was already able to gain important professional experiences.
First steps, curiosity, anticipation, lots of new impressions and a very warm welcome back – thanks to my lovely team.
Every day could be dress-down Friday.
The first thing to attract my attention was the forward-looking advertising campaign that was not typical for the industry. When I started in October 2000, I quickly came to realize that the advertising was more advanced than the clothes. And that was the task in hand. New targets were defined, new concepts created. Huge steps have been taken between then and now.
Live the denim culture: When you understand and grasp the philosophy behind the merchandise and the raw material, you start to love it. With my team, I can achieve anything; I can live it, feel it, do it; I am at one with it. It’s just great to be able to create an internationally successful collection together.
“Exciting brands, many opportunities… and a unique working environment.”
Joining the HOLY FASHION GROUP felt right from the very beginning. From the first interview – followed by a walk along the beautiful Lake Constance – to the warm welcome of my colleagues and the working-atmosphere itself: It feels great to be here.
After finishing my Master in Accounting & Finance at the University of St. Gallen, I was looking forward to a new challenge: Finding a career start with many opportunities to develop myself further, personally and professionally.
Being Trainee in Finance & Controlling at the HOLY FASHION GROUP is a great honor and an adventure for me. Within a short period of time I gain experience and get insights contributing to many different but all related departments.
If you are looking for a great job – go for the challenge, become a Trainee at HOLY FASHION GROUP.
A few months before finishing my apprenticeship in the windsor. store Düsseldorf I asked myself: "What will happen next?"
Leaving the company was not an option because I love working for the HFG and the brands Strellson, JOOP! and windsor.. Also I wanted to develop inside the company. I was offered a traineeship, which would help me take the next step in my career.
Now I am learning how to manage an entire floor. This includes sales planning, visual merchandising and a perfect customer service. Being a trainee is an exciting way to gain new experiences and to take on further responsibility. I am very happy that I pursued that offer.
