Penélope graduated from Parsons School of Design with a degree in Strategic Design & Management. She is a freelance content creator and fashion researcher based in Berlin.
In 2019, she put her career on hold to become a full-time mom. This led her to launch Documoda in 2021, a passion project in which she explores the stories behind designers and their collections. She shares her discoveries with her Tiktok community in video format.
Penélope also attended an online course at the London College of Fashion led by fashion historian Amber Butchart to enhance her research skills.
