Model Patricia Klöppel (MadMoiselle Peachy)
With her rockish attitude and alternative lifestyle, 25 yrs old Patricia Klöppel might not be the one you would call the classic fashion-model. Even though she started her modelling career at the early age of 4, mostly for catalogues which provided furniture, food and flouncy cute children's-dresses, she soon left that path to sample the atmosphere at local theatres, where she hit the stage for several years as background dancer and supernumerary.
After finishing school in 2011, Patricia started studying Biology in Düsseldorf, Germany, as she loved the subject, but for someone who has always had a huge creative aspect in her life, she soon started to look for a balance and fell in love with photography and everything involved around it. Shortly after starting modelling again, she had her first jobs in Ibiza, was booked for alternative fashion shows in Amsterdam, Berlin and Munich, modelled for EMP, one of the biggest providers for bandmerch and rock'n'roll clothing, danced for several bands at the Wacken-festival (and even did the Wrestling-Shows!) and became a spokesmodel for 70.000 Tons of Metal; a heavy metal festival which takes place on a cruise ship heading from Miami to Jamaica.
Anyway, as Patricia is signed by her diversity in the modelling business, as she is comfortable with lots of different themes and therefore the mix of festival, rock’n’roll, but high end, fashion and elegant as well, it’s nearly impossible to define her genre.
Since her comeback to the model industry she has built up a great network, made some good contacts and friends just like Laura Viktualia, her role is not just restricted to the model job itself, instead it became a common thing to invest hours and nights of work with the whole team, designing the set, working with art directors and designers, transforming and sewing outfits, even gluing latex, just to bring the concept and shoot to another level, to achieve the best possible.
Patricia is a really passionate model and character, always giving her best to accomplish the right result, even if it means spending hours in a foreign countries poppy field, besieged by millions of garden spiders, just to get the perfect photo!
