The Viennese designer Marina Hoermanseder with an atelier in Berlin studied International Business Administration and Fashion Design at the ESMOD fashion school in Berlin.

She became famous thanks to her very special and unique use of orthopaedic leather.

Autumn/Winter Collection 2018/19

Emancipation is the main theme of her autumn/winter collection 2018/19, which she emphasises with highly expressive details. In her show in the “VON GREIFSWALD”, women marched in graceful military style and elaborate leather constructions towards a female future. Carefully selected key pieces such as a leather skirt in a 3D look, a voluminous ski suit, bustiers and strap pants made of leather stripes as well as extra-long coats and tight dresses show how the designer always reinvents herself from her founding inspiration.

And of course Hoermanseder’s typical buckle is a decorative element of many of her pieces. On hoodies, the name “Marina Hoermanseder” stretches completely from one end of the sleeve over the chest to the other sleeve end, and some of her designs bear the large bold letters “Team MH”: “Team MH are simply my girls”, Hoermanseder said.

Very interesting and perhaps a new must-have is also her round mini bag in the shape of a hand grenade.
