DESIGNER TO KNOW: Erika Hendrix
Mar 18, 2009 - by Fashion Indie
Erika Hendrix is an emerging clothing brand located in Mannheim, Germany offering exclusively designed and produced fashion apparel. Each item is hand-made, eliminating waste generated from mass production, in a sweatshop free environment.
The Urban Romance collection primarily features soft, drapey tunics, cardigans, skirts, and dresses, in light-weight cotton jerseys. There are also tailored pieces, jodhpur skinny pants and bubble shorts, in medium-weight cottons.
The silhouettes which are primarily rounded or A-line, perfectly accentuates a womans femininity and allows for movement. The swing of double-layered skirts and v-necked slip dresses allows for an easy and comfortable grace.
The collections fabrics are made of approximately 95% sustainable fabrics in cotton and linen. The line offers limited quantity, high quality affordable fashion pieces that are socially responsible.
Colors will remind you of nature, muted tones in dove grey, buttercup yellow, sand dune, and indigo blue, but paired with designs that are edgy and contemporary. Although the collection consists mainly of delicate, romantic spring colors, Erika Hendrix also introduces pops of color with pieces in royal blue and bright apricot.
The store also offers accessories; there are colorful, lightweight scarves, in mustard, apricot, as well as chevron and floral prints. One-of-a kind necklaces have recently been added to the collection with a bag/purse line soon to follow in May/June 2009.
Want more? Erika Hendrix also ships to the United States, many of her unique pieces are currently on sale(lucky you!), but are selling out fast so be sure to take a look before that pretty little floral scarf you had your eye finds another home.
