ISABELA GYGAX - SWISS FASHION DESIGNER

I am a critical designer, visual artist, and writer. I trained at the École de la Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture Parisienne (now IFM) in fashion design and pattern making and worked as such in Paris before I obtained a master's degree in Ethics and Sustainability (Fashion Futures) at the University of the Arts London in 2018. The latter inspired me to develop expertise on the issue of human dignity in the context of fashion and dress. My interests are concerned with changing the systemical paradigms that cause social and environmental injustice, at best by using fashion as a force for good. But regardless of the medium, ultimately, my energy goes into working towards a kinder system that values people, the environment, creativity and profit in equal measure.


We design fashion, we make things, we take action and create culture - we write history we write future and existence… What we need is Humanitas! Look at indigenous peoples, rebells, suffragettes, drag queens, punks, homeless, the pussy hat, the little hole in your jumper.. do you


know how to mend it?


You know what is right - if you don’t, be curious and find out. A paradox? Useless? Well - No! Dress has always been an expression of our identity as humans, if dignity has never been photographed, it has certainly been DRESSED. Use Stop consumption! Sustain Memories You’re way Collective Love
