What can sustainable fashion learn from the Bauhaus
Time & Location

DEAR FRIENDS, Großer Burstah 42, 20457 Hamburg, Germany
About the event
Sophia Schneider-Esleben, multiple award-winning fashion designer and grandchild of Paul Schneider-Esleben, one of the most outstanding architects of post-war modernism, presents her eco fashion collection "Hommage à PSE" as part of the Hamburger Sommer, for 100 Years Bauhaus.
Sophia's grandfather Paul Schneider-Esleben, a friend and companion of Mies van der Rohe and Le Corbusier, was particularly dedicated to the Bauhaus. PSE's concept and his great talent were to create architecture as a total work of art in an interdisciplinary manner, with furniture, jewelry and painting.
Sophia inspires this as a role model to combine architecture, fashion and sustainability.
She transformed his designs, such as the Haniel Großgarage in Düsseldorf, his groundbreaking work in 1949, as well as watercolors from Bali and ink drawings on the winter landscape, as textile prints on her fashion. She produces them in pure organic cotton made in Germany.
Sophia's fashion is unisex, 100% made in Germany, local, resource-saving and circular, slow, smart, eco. Her approach is to combine fashion, art and sustainability.
Sophia and Janine from WERTE FREUNDE cordially invite you to the vernisage "What can sustainable fashion concepts learn from Bauhus?"
When: 07/09/19, from 7 p.m.
Where: DEAR FRIENDS
