About The Speaker
German-American Cherie Birkner has made it her trademark to work with sustainable (fashion) companies. In the past, she worked as a creative director in the fast fashion sector and decided in 2016 to take a new path as a photographer. Her top priority was to work according to her values and only work with companies whose products she could stand behind. Today, the photographer (and content creator) realises advertising campaigns for sustainable initiatives as well as her own artistic works that deal with fashion and sustainability. In 2021, she received the Silver Award for Director in the Narrative and Eco Sustainable categories at the Chicago Fashion Film Festival for her first short film.
