    Six questions for Lina Harder

    1. My day at the office starts with …
    As soon as I get to the office, I start my computer. But, first things first - I can't do anything without my first cup of coffee. We have a common team ritual here: Every morning, on our way to the coffee machine, we enjoy chit-chatting about personal news or stories. This strengthens team spirit. Back at my desk, I check my e-mail and discuss the most important items on the daily agenda with the team.

    2. What I like most at work … 
    I don't know where to start. Most of all, I enjoy working in such a great young team. In KIDS Design, we develop for all product groups. The product variety here is therefore enormous, and you can really learn a lot here in terms of specialist knowledge. And after the long development phase, when you finally have the finished product in your hands, it's always like a first time over and over again - kind of like Christmas. And of course, I enjoy the traveling: Regular store checks in important fashion metropolises or at trade fairs and trips to production and suppliers sites in the Far East are just part of the job. 
  • 3. A very special experience with the TOM TAILER GROUP was …
    In August 2014, we will be starting the relaunch of our TOM TAILOR core brand. This innovation had already been introduced at the Bread & Butter trade fair in Berlin this January. The presentation and the outfits there were magnificent, they truly made me exceptionally proud to be a designer!

    4. My favorite piece of clothing is …
     
    I personally like wearing plain white t-shirts most. Among my colleagues, I am probably best known for my love of sneakers. And our collections inspire me over and over again: Extensively designed denim pieces, beautiful details and an authentic wash - I just can't say no! 

    5. This is what I'm very good at …
    I like finding creative solutions fast. I have a knack for trends and a good sense of vision in terms of what the collections should look like, especially TOM TAILOR BOYS. In our division, we put lots of love and passion into each and every one of our styles.

    6. My greatest personal success at the TOM TAILOR GROUP was …
    My promotion from designer to Team Head Design is something that I'm personally very proud of. 

With passion, creativity and determination, the TOM TAILOR GROUP has become an international, publicly listed fashion and lifestyle group. Some of the most important facts:
