SISSI GOETZE graduated with a diploma in fashion design from HTW Berlin and an MA in menswear from Central Saint Martins College in London. After showing her almost surgical, all white and all shirting graduate collection at London Fashion Week in 2010, she is now based in Berlin.
For her S/S 2012 collection SISSI GOETZE continues working with strict dictations using only shirting fabric for the whole collection.
The material is set in one or more layers to create a varying visual appearance and surface feel for the different garments. The basic pattern construction of a special T-shirt (3 pattern pieces without shoulder and side seam) is used as a base for all tops and then transformed into jackets, bomber blousons and coats.
Her refreshing, minimal take on modern menswear is youthful, yet sophisticated and has a subtle edge to it.
The collections combine precise simplicity with refined cuts, high quality of materials and outstanding craftsmanship.
