I love to make patterns!
I have worked in the rag trade for 30+ years. This has taken me from bridal to work wear, from fast fashion to made-to-measure, from factories in Bangladesh to salons in Paris.
Slavery in the rag trade has never sat well with me. The exploitative nature of the clothing industry is a dirty secret that fast fashion addicts try to ignore. How can me maximize choice and avoid exploitation? As a designer and artist, I want to shake up the system.
Since 2006, I have had the Stokx Shop in Berlin. Over the years, thousands of people of all shapes and sizes have walked through my door. I have tried to have something that fits everyone and have strived to make styles that can easily be adapted to fit the person and the lifestyle of my customers.
