Tessa Petrusa works as a trend researcher with an anthropological approach. During her master Anthropology at the University of Amsterdam, she became fascinated with everything related to the human body. This also lead to a thesis research focusing on cosmetic surgery in Los Angeles. As a trendwatcher the human body is now her main focus.
