Katja Rahlwes



Nationality: Germany
Born in Germany, Katja Rahlwes arrived to Paris at the tender age of 16 to study design at the famed fashion Institute Studio Bercot. After graduating she started her career as an illustrator and fashion stylist working for some of Europe's most innovative and influential fashion titles. However, Katja felt that her true calling was in image making behind the lens as a photographer. Her first assignments were for the iconic parisian fashion bible of cool, Purple Magazine. Katja has developed a unique language in within her fashion work. As she highlights the most important trends of the season, she is simultaneously depicting and assertive and sexually empowered woman, a muse in control of her destiny and her physicality. A true contrast to the "femme objet" that is depicted by many of her peers who objectify women and disempower them positioning them as mere objects of consumption. Her unique perspective has landed her assignments in Vogue Paris, Vogue Nippon, Self Service, W and i-D Magazine as well as Gucci, Celine, MiuMiu, Chloe, APC, and Maison Martin Margiela.
