The fusion of beautiful Romanian folkloric textiles and modern design.
Bridge the barrier between good old days and modern society.
The information revolution deletes distances. Keywords like accessibility and transparency gained importance. At the same time, our fast moving and modern society ruined traditional roots.
"Our sense of reality is decreasing as well as the awareness about how the material world is constantly influencing us. We are part of a whole, from which we cannot separate ourselves and this fact defines in many ways what we are."
In recent years the traditional fabrics industry in Romania has been driven to near extinction. To strengthen this traditional artisanry, Isabell de Hillerin is working with local Romanian manufacturers to support the production of handmade materials. The designer tries to raise the importance of the traditional values of the country's craftsmanship, that has begun to fade out. Her aim is to support these highly skilled craftsmen by publicising and utilising their cultural skills in a way that hasn't been done before.
The German designer Isabell de Hillerin completed her fashion design studies at the Felicidad Ducein Barcelona in 2009. She has exhibited her collections at the Creamoda in Bilbao, thekey.toin Berlin, Ethical fashion Show in Paris, and Arts of Fashion in Philadelphia. She recently moved to Berlin to create her own label.
