Dana Mikelson is a costume designer and art director based in Berlin / Germany.
Born in Riga / Latvia in 1987, she moved to Germany with her family at a very young age.
Spending her entire teenagehood with drawing and painting, Dana began her costume work when studying fine art and cinema at Hochschule für Gestaltung Offenbach (academy of arts and design), where she graduated in 2011. Her eye for aestethics and her understanding of production processes developed here alongside her widely-spread education including art direction, graphic design, photography, filmmaking, crafting and stage design.
She worked with CEXN //clothing art from 2011-14 as designer, art director and sales manager and works now fully independent. She opened her studio/showroom in Berlin in 2015. Since then, each year an exhibition in a fair or gallery takes place and projects are followed one after another, continously exploring new fields.
