Friday July_5th_2019

We launched the project NOT_A_STUDIO with an exhibition and the premiere of our  ADD_IT_COLLECTION.

Worn on top of the wearer’s own outfit the Items function more like textile jewellery or add-on apparel. All "ADDITS" are as gender and size inclusive as possible.

The pieces are made from disposed garments, supplied by TexAid – one of Germany’s largest textile separating plants - and fabric scraps from other brands’ production runs.


You can find more photos of the show here.

Thanks to everyone who came out at this special day, it was a blast.


Also a big THANK YOU to all the helping hands. To Gregor and Nicole especially for planning and curating the exhibition and all the beautiful people who did such a great job at walking the catwalk.

Full video coming soon ...
