Fassbender is a Hamburg-based label that brings together the elegance of sophisticated tailoring, comfort and functionality. A Fassbender garment is an everyday companion that makes it through the rainy morning walk and the summer hike, and shines at the cocktail dinner in the evening.
Founded in 2017 by fashion industry veteran Christina Fassbender with her brother Sebastian Steinhoff, and designed by New York-based creative director Matthias Louwen, Fassbender is a friends and family business with a strong commitment to quality and responsibility.
Fassbender believes in the connectedness of living beings and nature and work towards a responsible circular economy that respects the environment and all of its life. Every season, the makers of the label explore the newest material innovations, all sourced from certified workshops with the highest ethical standards for everyone involved in the creation process. Natural materials, like alpaca and lambs wool, are produced by animal-friendly farms, the peace silk is made without sacrificing living silk worms, the vegan leathers are sourced from organic materials and the label is continuously increasing the share of recycled materials in the collections.
The entire collection is made in Portugal and Belgium and committed to responsible production with respect to everyone and everything involved.
Every single Fassbender piece is made with a human touch, with creativity and emotions. The designs are handmade on dress form, manually drawn and perfected with meticulous cutting techniques. Each garment is worn and tested by Christina and her friends before going into production to make sure it feels as beautiful as it looks.
