    Astrid is a highly creative costume designer with extensive experience in film, TV and media productions as well as the fashion industry. In addition she is working as a professional photographer, often using her design skills for the creation of her images.

    Originally from Germany, where she was running a fashion business in Berlin, Astrid has been living in the UK since 1994. After her inspiring costume studies at 'Wimbledon School of Art 'she has been working on feature films, TV productions, numerous shorts as well as music videos and corporates. In 2013 she was designing her first opera, which went on stage at Barbican (London) and later toured to festivals in Amsterdam, Toronto (2014) and Leon (2015).

    In 2003 Astrid decided to engage professionally with her lifelong interest in photography by studying at 'London College of Communication'; she achieved a graduate certificate with distinction in 2005. Both of her careers go hand in hand and influence each other in a quirky and original way. However, Astrid still keeps her hands busy with costume design and wardrobe construction as creativity and storytelling are her true passions.

Faced with imminent eviction, a reluctant Phil is persuaded to join the agency and soon the two gigolos have a loyal following including bored housewife, Frances.
