A SELECTED BUNCH OF PEOPLE, 10 SHORT QUESTIONS AND 10 FASHIONABLE/REFRESHING/INSPIRATIONAL/AMUSING ANSWERS. THOSE ARE THE INGREDIENTS FOR STYLE TALKS. THIS TIME WE TALKED WITH MARION STREHLOW, A DÜSSELDORF BASED FASHION DESIGNER.

Marion Strehlow has a very personal but minimal approach to fashion. This results in beautiful timeless collections full of puristic essentials, but always with a new cut or original twist. She doesn’t obey fashion conventions and sees her collections as something that’s fluent and evolving all the time. She just adds and adjusts to what’s already there. That’s why some key pieces are in her collection for years! Collaborating and finding new ways to present fashion are very important to her. She had (temporary) shops and worked together with several befriended (street) artist, which resulted in abstract prints for her designs and a limited bag collection. We met Strehlow at her studio in Düsseldorf where she lives and works and which also functions as her showroom.
