What I find fascinating about any design object is usually not only the object itself but also the story behind it. In other words: the fact that there is actually more to it.
Berlin based fashion designer Isabel de Hillerin and her label of the same name is a such an example of a brand with a strong and interesting story and concept.
Her collections combine clean, elegant and contemporary cuts and folkloric handmade materials. She works with local manufacturers and artisans in Romania - where her family has its roots - and Moldavia. That way she is not only supporting the suffering traditional artisan industry in these countries but also combining her contemporary designs and their weaving and embroidery skills in a very innovative way with her subtle and elegant use of traditional elements.
