Tim Labenda is a German designer working and living in the south of Germany.
In 2013, Vogue’s Editor-in-chief Christiane Arp took notice of his work and welcomed the young fashion talent into her VOGUE Salon during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin. The collection impressed her, earning him a second invitation in 2014.
Tim Labenda studied fashion design at the School of Design in Pforzheim, after completing his apprenticeship in tailoring at Hugo Boss in 2008. To expand his knowledge of textile design, he spent a term at Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in 2009. He then started his career as a design assistant to Ute Ploier Vienna and Paris, after interning at Kenneth Cole Productions New York.
The label offers a uniquely feminine style that integrates masculine elements, playing with surfaces to create a cool, sexy and elegant style with quality fabrics and extraordinary textures. His works are modest understatements that embody pure elegance.
