Ethical Fashion Show Berlin and.. Seek 2018

It. was. intense.

The Berlin Fashion Week comprises a multitude of official events and trade shows and of course even more smaller happenings.

We attended the Ethical Fashion Show as visitors in order to get a vibe and some infos on the ethical fashion scene. We couldn't call us an urban brand without having a peek at Seek, a massive trade show for all the streetwear brands. It's quite overwhelming at first, but if you take your time to look at the individual exhibitors you'll feel more comfortable. We've been impressed with the style and quality of a few brands. And we've been really disappointed to see some brands not making an effort or rather not having a clear concept. It's definitely something we have to work on, too. Which we did btw, countless hours of discussions and argueing back and forth over our future.

Wenke and I have reached a point, where we feel we're pushing in the right direction. You'll see some changes in the future. ANYA will definitely be more "European"...

We'll keep you posted!

 

What's cooking

Hi everyone out there!

We hope you you had a great start in to 2018 and you're excited for more ethical  and Fairtrade fashion!

We can't wait to attend the Ethical Fashion Show Berlin next week. The industry's leaders will be there showcasing their latest collection alongside major conventional brands. We'll be there to network, meet potential suppliers and simply to get inspired.

We've been testing natural dyes in order to offer you more colour variety. I shall keep you posted on the process.. :-)

And don't worry, we still love New York eventhough we're not physically present anymore.

New York Loves Fairtrade fashion

 

The Move

Jamil's move has been the reason you haven't heard from us in a while. I moved from Brooklyn to Berne (Switzerland) and took parts of A New York Affair with me. The result are a few open questions (English vs. German, New York style vs. European style etc.) and the formalisation of the label here in Switzerland. Thank god, Wenke is still holding her ground in the city that never sleeps...

My goal is to grow the ethical and fair fashion label based in Switzerland, but to never forget where it all started:

New York City.

Oh I miss the city already, but I'll be back!
