Soon afterwards Gerber returned to Germany, where she undertook her three year acting, education, singing and ballet classes. Upon turning 16 she moved to Atlanta for school and modeling.
After finishing school and receiving an acting education, a move to Munich and hectic work schedule ensued.
The move paid off when she started her first campaigns. Since then she has resided in Milan, Shanghai, Athens, Vienna, Zurich, Roma, Miami, Bangkok and Los Angeles; all of which have contributed vastly to her experience. Since 2008, Alena has also worked in television, movies and sports shows.
Alena Gerber is actively supporting animal welfare organisation Peta since 2013 and she is a proud owner of Dexter, a Hungarian hunting dog. She loves to do motorcycling, to dance ballet and to create vegan delicacies in her spare time.
You can watch Alena Gerber currently on „adidas Gamedayplus“ and on Germany’s Pro7 tv channel.
Born in Ruit, near Stuttgart on August 20th, Alena Fritz (maiden name Gerber) already had a slight taste of what it was like to work as a fashion model, as her mother was a beautyqueen and runway-model.
Alena started modelling when she was 12 for her father’s fashion company, and it was only a year later when a modeling scout noticed her and decided to recruit her.
Soon Alena landed a runway appearance, which was followed by a commercial and print ad. Alena felt that being a model in Germany would not expose her to what fashion was truly about, and as a result, she traveled to Milan to expand her experience. Among the major fashion companies she worked for are Escada, L’Oréal Paris, Dsquared, Hilfiger and Talbot & Runhof.
