the designer

Founder of STILL garments, Elke Fiebig, is a Berlin based fashion designer specialising in slow fashion and sustainable design strategies with a focus on natural dyeing, textile techniques and zero waste pattern construction.


After studying at Weißensee Kunsthochschule Berlin (KHB), Germany, and Designskolen Kolding (DK), Denmark, she graduated in 2013. 

2016 she was one of the first "designers in residency" at design hub EMMA, and moved to the German south for three months.

She received the City of Berlin's scholarship "Elsa-Neumann-Stipendium". In 2014 she was chosen to participate in Goethe Institut Dhaka's programme "Local International", aiming to promote sustainability, fair trade and participation in the fashion industry.

This cross-cultural experience between fashion designers from Berlin and Dhaka, Bangladesh, deeply touched and impressed her and was the starting point for STILL garments.

 

"I regard fashion as something that expresses how we are part of everything around us, connected to the past and shaping the future.

I aim to create garments that are determined for actual wear while being objects of cultural and intellectual significance."
