Once Upon the Fables Behind Fashion

Welcome to fashionforfables. Please sit, get comfortable, perhaps you have a music request before we continue or would you fancy some vegan treats? Where should we begin? Probably with introductions. My name is MB, that's short for Mary Brenda, we all have double names in my family. I am the owner, model, writer, photographer and stylist behind this little new shop Once upon a time in the Netherlands where I grew up from the age of 8, I started going to flea markets and estate sales with my mom and sister and the rest as they say is history. I love the art of finding beautiful things where most people wouldn't think to look. My love for vintage lead me to study Fashion Journalism at the London College of Fashion after which I worked as a freelance journalist for a number of print magazines before moving into digital sphere and started working as a Social Media Manager for Luxury Fashion Brands this is what lead me to Munich where I have been working for the past 4 years. After years of collecting vintage, working in fashion and hearing people saying " you should open a shop" I decided in 2018 after travelling in Morocco for a few months that the time was right to share my love and passion. Why fables, I am writer first and foremost and what I loved the most about vintage as a child was making up stories about the clothes I would find and I want to bring that spirit into this store and fashion. it's about storytelling and embracing how different styles make us feel, I grew up going to international schools and I love meeting new people, I especially love older generation with great style, there are many here in Munich. The items you see here are mostly sourced from them from a range of flea markets across the city. I am vegan and also love yoga. Another reason why I love vintage is for the sustainable factor. Every item you purchase will come with a little poem written by me inspired by the clothing you purchased. Hope you enjoying shopping here. nice meeting you
