Coco Pit is a French designer, graphic artist and fashion illustrator. As a Fine Art graduate of the Paris-VIII University she started successful collaborations in communication consulting for leading French fashion designers and Couture houses. This experience gave her a great opportunity to focus on fashion and continue her interests in art.

After moving to London she set up her own company called getConfused specializing in creative and technology consultancy. Nowadays, Coco is a hard-working and enthusiastic artist dividing her precious time between illustration works and trend reports for diverse fashion magazines such as Elle, Vogue, and Muse and her expanding business Forget Me Not including magical scarves, cushions and turbans.

I had a great telephone conversation with Coco speaking about her artistic work, inspirations and experience in the fashion industry.

Anke Schuhardt, the cool “press fairy” of Herznote Publishing talks to us about fashion, social media and of course the team’s latest inspiring project entitled “CIRCUS” that focuses in the fashion industry and is implemented with the contribution of bloggers from around the world. Creativity and challenges are Anke’s forte – so let’s hear her out:

Hello Anke and welcome to EyeCandies! Give us a brief description of your background and your interests.

Hello Aphrodite! Well, I’m from Darmstadt, a city close to Frankfurt in Germany. It’s my hometown and I will finish studying Online Journalism this summer. We founded Herznote Publishing a year ago. However, we had other journalistic projects before, so we already had lots of experience. When I’m not working I like to do pretty normal stuff: reading books and magazines, listening to music, going to concerts, watching series and meeting friends. However, I also like stuff that is not that normal – I love piercings and tattoos, corsets and everything that's red and pink – like my hair.
