Nina had a colourful childhood in Hamburg, Germany. Therefore, like her mum, she developed a passion for print and colour and studied graphic design. By the resurgence of retro style and the arrival of her own children inspired she relaunched her mum’s renowned designs. Renamed byGraziela, the label has gained a cult following. ‘We get lots of emails from mothers and grandmothers who are absolutely excited because they link my mum’s design to their childhood. They want their children and grandchildren to have their own wonderful memories with our cult design’, says Nina.
