Interview with Esther Sedlaczek
The well-known sports presenter Esther Sedlaczek embodies an ANY DIva in all areas: sports, fashion, flexibility! After completing her studies in fashion journalism, she switched to the sports sector. However, she has never lost her penchant for fashion. How she brings her passions sports and fashion together in her everyday life, she tells in this interview..
If you look at your career, it is noticeable that you have a fashion journalism degree, how did you come across the sports field?
I have always been a sports enthusiast, especially soccer. After graduating from high school, I had to find me first. And on this path I also tried myself in fashion journalism, but quickly realized that my strengths lie elsewhere. I came to my current profession through a casting. At the right time in the right place - that was probably fate.
After 10 years as a sports presenter at Sky, you're moving to Sportschau in 2021. How come?
After more than 10 years at SKY, I was offered the chance to host a format as rich in tradition as the Sportschau. Sometimes it's time to move on, to take on new challenges. The moment had now come and I am very happy about my future tasks although also a lot of melancholy resonates due to the great years that I spent at SKY.
How do you combine your passions for sports with fashion?
I am a fan of practical and comfortable clothing. That's why I love sportswear. I could actually walk around in it all day. Love it but just as me for shows or events to make really chic.
What is your personal must-have accessory in your closet that you could not do without?
A beautiful bag can enhance any outfit. For me, next to my wedding ring ;-) the most important accessory. It is particularly important to me that it is timelessly elegant and fits virtually every outfit.
What makes the perfect bag for you as a business woman?
Timeless elegance, a good size and it should be individually usable.
