WHO WE ARE
HI, I'M OLIVIA..
36 years old, married to my husband Thorsten, to summer & to the sea. Also, I'm a part-time mommy of a cute little dog named Pino. If I had the chance to pick a destination for living besides my home base in Essen, it'd be L.A. and Formentera where I try to escape whenever I get the chance. After studying Textile & Clothing Management in Mönchengladbach I worked in the fields of Product Development, Creative Management and Purchasing for brands like Hugo Boss, Tommy Hilfiger and Dorothee Schumacher for seven years. In my spare time, I'm sharing some inspiration on my blog selfcare-crew.com .
HI, I'M SUSANNE..
38 years old, married to my husband Michael and mother of a little boy named Levi. The past 8 years have been quite turbulent since my husband and I were moving from Metzingen to Amsterdam to Munich to Berlin to Herrenberg and finally to Landsberg am Lech (Bavaria), which is both my place of birth as well as my Happy Place. I studied Clothing Engineering in Albstadt. After that I passed through departments like Quality and Creative Management for companies like Hugo Boss, Tommy Hilfiger and latest Zalon by Zalando for which I worked as a freelance stylist.
The two of us met at Hugo Boss in 2008 and became friends as well as great colleagues. After working together in the same team for several seasons, we both went to Amsterdam nearly at the same time to work for Tommy Hilfiger. As we always shared the same sense for beautiful things, traveling and what’s important in life, we finally decided to do something on our own independently & creatively – that’s how SO|GUSH came to life in 2014. As creatives by nature, we collect streams and tendencies to implement them into your product or brand. We take pride in each work and incorporate quality and workability with sense & emotions.
