LET BODY BUILDING CHAMPION RAMONA DIRSCH TAKE YOU ON A NONSENSICAL RIDE

Ramona Dirsch is the current German body building champion in the “women’s physique” category, as well as a finalist at last year’s Universe Championship, the star of this fashion story and also graced the cover of INDIE’s current issue, majestically posing in front of the “DeLorean” car from Back to the future (and maybe the only element able to take the spotlight a tiny bit away from her). So it’s pretty safe to say she knows exactly how to draw attention to her.

Training for 34 years and now 40, she explains how for her the most satisfying thing is being able to show what she has achieved with her body. Training is all about change, experimentation and learning to not get stuck in that infamous plateau. Fashion or any other creative fields are a bit like that as well – creatives fear feeling stuck. It’s all about being daring, not scared of change and open to have your existing preconceived notions challenged. Watch Ramona proudly show off her impressive physique in a very picturesque scenery in this story shot by photographer Timothy Schaumburg sporting some very daring outfits ideated by INDIE fashion director Dogukan Nesanir.
