Claudia Brandmair was born in Upper Austria in 1975. Unlike many of her colleagues she did not acquire her skills at University but, from her early childhood on, at her mothers tailoring studio. One characteristic feature of her designs is that they are not subject to an overall theme. Each item of clothing can stand for itself as well as for the whole. Another is the highly individual mix of materials, patterns and forms in her collections. Her focus is on the wearability of her designs as well as on the technically inspired development of ideas on the basis of the individual material. Her designs are mainly characterised by basic minimalism combined with subtly detailed cuts. Since February 2004 her label has been represented, internationally shown as well as distributed by the Paris and London showroom Showroomvago.
