When Franziska was 23 years old, she was discovered by none other than fashion designer Wolfgang Joop in a café in Potsdam. He was immediately on fire from his newest discovery and gave her a modeling contract with the agency Model Management in Hamburg. From that moment on her career took off. She runs for well-known designers such as Joop, Strenesse, Vivien Westwood, Escada and Wunderkind and is the commercial face for Triumph, Joop, Reebok and others.
In addition, Franziska writes columns for fashion magazines and is an actress as well as a permanent guest on the red carpets of Germany. Even today, at over 40, she is still on the cover of Vogue, Cosmopolitan and Elle, and can thus be seen as one of the most famous faces of this country.
