Lovely dress! My absolute favorite! Fabric is firm and light at the same time, good quality. The dress is a bit see through, which I suspected and isn't a problem for me. True to size, love the oversized fit. Anna-Magdalena adjusted the length for me. She did a perfect job with my measurements. The conversations with Anna were pleasant. I received the dress within one week (shipped from Germany to the Netherlands), faster than I imagined. The dress was packed very neat and with a lovely note. I definitely reccomend shopping at aempersand! I’m sure I will revisit this shop!
womenswear made in Berlin
As a child I loved to draw and as a teenager I was always interested in fashion. In the late nineties I identified myself a lot with labels experimenting a lot with materials and cuts. To make fashion was just a girl’s dream and that’s why I started to study french first.
I came to a point in life where I missed the practical part very much and I decided to try and pursue my life’s dream – and it worked out at the very first attempt! I started studying fashion design first in Germany and later at the Designskolen Kolding in Denmark, and one of my favorite designers, Henrik Vibskov, was teaching there as a guest professor! The year in Denmark was very inspiring and a big motivation. Scandinavian fashion was a revelation to me. When I was there to study in 2006 I felt for the first time that people understood what I felt, when I did modest clothes with monochrome colours without being determined on being classical. The experiences which I collected in Denmark have a great influence on my design until today.
Art and fashion have continuously floating borders for me. One will be recognized and producing the other. I’ve never been conscious about consuming fashion. Instead I’ve always been influenced by art and architecture. Especially in modern or deconstructive architecture I found ideas which are inspiring, lines and perspectives are perfect for adapting onto clothes. To do timeless fashion could be an aim but on the other hand it’s an utopia because we are living in a certain time and we are influenced by this time. Garments were transformed into something different in the very moment when somebody puts it on. I like this idea a lot when i send my pieces around the globe.
Nowadays I have my own little studio in Berlin, designing and making clothes for men and women with love care knowledge and craft.
Welcome to my æmpersand/ online shop.
With it’s unconventional elegance aempersand/ addresses those young cosmopolitan men and women that appreciate wearability. The Scandinavian influence is obvious in the designs – Anna-Magdalena Wendt worked under Henrik Vibskov in Denmark – but for her that’s no reason to be narrowed down to the label of the “hip” Nordic design.
The collections by aempersand/ are more than ghostlights on the ever rotating fashion carroussel. They make a statement through their purism and clarity in an unobtrusive manner. Rather than by exaggeration or provocation aempersand/ ‘s profile is defined by correct fit, high quality material and creative transformation of a clear idea of fashion.
Therefore you won’t find pattern mixes or flashy shades in aempersand/ designs. The winter collection 2011/12 is dominated by coolish shades such as light lilac, dark shades of blue, light grey or classic black.
The pieces never appear dull or unsophisticated – the cuts see to that easily, as they counterpoint the colours clarity and the designs functionality.
Furthermore, small details such as a draped collar or the geometrical layout of the seams give every piece its own uniqueness.
From the first sketch to the final button – at aempersand/ every piece is handmade in the designers own workshop
As a result Anna-Magdalena Wendt’s work promises not only interesting fashion and high quality, but overall - scarcity value.
