Katja Rahlwes has been in the fashion business for decades, and started her career as a professional fashion stylist in 1995 after having studied Fashion Design at Studio Bercot in Paris. In 1998 she became chief-fashion editor and photo-editor at BIBA, a major market fashion magazine in Paris. At the same time, she continued to expand her vision as an independent stylist with magazines like Dutch, i-D, Dazed and Confused, Made in USA, Vogue Japan, Index and others. Throughout those years at BIBA she would live a parallel life as a professional stylist and part-time photographer. She said it was, “like having a husband and a lover.” In the first years she mainly shot women she wanted to meet and spend time with. Photography had a very important impact on Rahlwes, and made her feel free and independent in her work. Now you can see her work in magazines like French Vogue, Vogue Nippon, Vogue US, Self Service, Purple fashion, i-D, etc. And she has done work for clients such as Gucci, Miu Miu, Chloé, A.P.C., Martin Margiela, Hysteric Glamour, Levi’s, and others.
