The Berlin label Philomena Zanetti never lets itself be distracted by trends. Instead, it focuses on clear lines - and this does not apply to the look, but also to the production! Each Zanetti piece is handcrafted and made from sustainable fabrics. Of course in Europe.
Julia Leifert does not need to explain that style and environmental awareness are no contradictions. After graduating in law and fashion design management, she noticed early on that Sustainable Fashion is still considered unfashionable. She founded her own label to provide the final proof of the contrary: Philomena Zanetti, named after Julia's great-great-grandmother, produces ethically impeccable but highly fashionable collections for "strong women who live consciously" since 2014. Inspired by the undistorted landscapes of South Tyrol (where the real Philomena Zanetti lived), beautiful and high-quality designs are created without frills. Julia Leifert says: "I want to live out my style, but no longer wear clothes that exploit people or animals or are at the expense of the environment." For Philomena Zanetti she almost exclusively uses sustainable materials, most of them with organic or recycled seals, and does without leather, fur or wool, that is not cruelty free. The reward: a Peta proofed label from the world's largest animal rights organization.

Julia, who taught herself tailoring and has a passion for fabrics, produces her collections by hand and in Europe. Most of them are only available by pre-order. Philomena Zanetti avoids any surplus that is responsible for the mountains of waste in the conventional fashion industry. Julia's understanding of modern femininity? "Classical, reinterpreted cuts." And unquestionable principles. This is High Fashion 2018!
