She was spotted by us on a photo together with model Alina Snowwhite, who we featured some time ago. We then took a look at her other photos and were impressed by her appearance and style, so that we asked model Geraldine Hacker for an interview. By this opportunity we learned, that she besides being a model also is a designer. We are happy to introduce you this amazing model and designer today by showing some photos of her and her designs.
I am 32 years old, I was born in a small city near lake of Constance where I still live now. I work at Client Service in an office where I do the french speaking part. I did an education as a fashion designer some years ago, which I do a lot in my free time. I love to create and sew new accessoires and sometimes clothes. While modelling I descovered a passion for photography - so I bought a camera and started photographing myself, it's so exciting!
What do you love most about modelling?
I can be creative and I can bring in my own ideas and creations. And the positive fact that it gives you self-confidence and it shows that you don't need to have a "perfect" 1.80 m tall body to have a nice result.
It was one of my recent shoots where I could wear one of my self designed and sewn dress
Tell us about some of your recent shoots.
It was a shooting with a dress with a 3 meter trail (Schleppe). And a Basketball shooting with two photographers which was a lot of fun. Also a girl girl shooting where we wore some of my sleeping masks was quite fun. The latest shooting was a photo challange at a photo walk where we had to create photos with two objects and we didn't know each other before. This was also a nice experience.
What really goes on behind the scenes as a model?
You have to be self confident and you have to have the opinion that you don't care what other people think. You have to accept and like you as you are! And you have to be very patient when the photographer needs to find the right camera settings. Sometimes it's not within the first 10 minutes that you get the perfect shot and sometimes you have to be very movable I sometimes feel aching after a shooting. But it's always a great time and you laugh a lot.
Which photographers in the industry do you most enjoy working with?
I dream of becoming in front of Karl Lagerfeld's cam.
I love to break style rules. I love to combine joggers with heels but it always have to be feminie and often a little Touch of sporty. I would call it cool feminine.
Who would you say is your 'style muse'?
Jennifer Lopez with a touch of Chiara Ferragni.
Your favourite designer is… ?
Karl Lagerfeld because I like his quotes.
Vogue or Harper’s Bazaar?
Is there any particular designer piece you are crushing on right now?
I love Calvin Klein pieces right now. They are so cool.
What do you hope to be doing in the next 5 years?
I hope I am healthy, this is my biggest wish. And I hope that I'm still continue doing what makes my happy and I continue being creative.
If you could be anywhere else but here, where would you go?
London or Berlin is a cool place for a fashion victim like me When I'm older, I see myself in a small village in South France, Provence. I love the landscape there...
