For aeyde’s “Qualities of Life” series, we sat down with six women who inspire us with their unique views on work, life, and finding balance. In Part One, we caught up with Ala Glasner, 42, who runs her own art advisory and curating business, where she helps private and corporate clients build art collections and exhibitions. Raised between Austria and Brazil, Ala completed her studies at London’s Central Saint Martin's University, starting out her art career in the British capital. Now, an affinity for Berlin’s laid-back creative scene has led her to call the city home. She also happens to be the inspiration for our ALA shoe. We spoke to Ala about starting her own business, the importance of surrounding yourself with good people, and the ins and outs of the Berlin art scene. Meet Ala Glasner.
