Preview of my first Collection!

I was so proud when Chandra Prakash Jha, founder and designer at the Indo-German label COCCCON, asked me to create a male collection for the label COCCCON – creativity can care. “FAIR & GENTLE” was born and we start with a small winter collection made out of hundred percent organic non-violent silk. More information about COCCCON you find on the webpage or don’t miss any news on Facebook. But now enjoy my first small collection… Hope you like it…


Designed in Germany – Made in India

With a responsible & skilful approach to make menswear, COCCCON is exhibiting its first menswear collection fair & gentle at Greenshowroom @ Berlin fashion week, January 2014.

In some cases zero or low impact bleaching medium is used.

Printing is done either with herbal pigments or zero impact GOTS certified chemical pigments. Fixing of the printing is done only with steaming.
