Hortense Studio is a fashion brand based next to Munich, reflecting a unique taste of romantic designs and colorful fabrics, passing through time and trends. At Hortense we like to say “transparency is the key”, from the origin of our fabrics to the production of our treasures. We are selecting carefully high-end fabrics which are produced in Italy, Spain and Portugal, meeting environmental guidelines (with OECO-Tex standard 100 or GOTS certification ). Our small Atelier is based in Bavaria, Germany and each of our pieces are Handcrafted with love from our dedicated Seamstresses. We are driving a online-only, direct to customer strategy, which means we can sell premium products with the highest quality fabrics at a great price.
Founder & Designer Manuela with french & swiss roots was inspired by the Victorian era, Vintage and her childhood, which she spent in Vichy in the middle of France and Switzerland. Her grandmother, a hatter educated in Paris would inherited her creativity and taste for beautiful things. At this time she would dress her in Cacharel. All this explains her love for Liberty Prints and well tailored clothing.
As the year passed her heart still grew for flowery prints and girly shapes!
She found it very hard to buy nice and unique sustainable clothing with a transparent workflow. She started to design and sew her own clothing. This was the start of Hortense Studio.
At Hortense Studio we are dedicated to be transparent with our workflow and giving you the opportunity to meet a Brand with timeless pieces who will remind you of your childhood, respecting people and nature in a sustainable and ethical way. We are believers of the slow fashion concept, and our designs are meant to last over time and trends.
We launch, one piece at a time, each Saturday at 9am (CET) with limited availability. In between we launch little capsule collections.
We are very proud to show you our treasures and thank you to be part of our world.
