Pavlina Jauss moved from Lovech to Hamburg when she started at the famous Akademie JAK in the year 2000. In 2014, the doors of her own opened with a direct-to-consumer model and since then the rest is history: the brand is now represented in various boutiques, dark-wear stores and shops worldwide. She’s always had a love for fashion and it still is very important to her. “Fashion means a lot to me as I am surrounded by fabrics, buttons and all these things for hours each day.

European craftsmanship

European craftsmanship is an important part of Pavlina Jauss’s collections. On top of this, exquisite, fair-trade and sustainable materials take the lead. Within her independent studio and atelier, Jauss creates al garments in Hamburg, Germany, except for the knitwear, which she sources at Bulgaria.

All materials are as natural as possible, just as the main source of inspiration for Pavlina Jauss’s latest collection: “The textures and silhouettes of stones were my main inspiration.” And of course, stones have a deeper meaning for the fashion designer. She adds: “Stones last forever, like this world could last forever if sustainability would be important to everyone like it should.

Jauss could be described as a down-to-earth realist, with a big fantasy. When talking about her role models, she says: “My role models are people who walk the talk, take action and try to be themselves without being selfish or arrogant.

Just as her role models, her answer about her near future is equally straightforward: “Still designing my own garments and try to make my customers happy.” It doesn’t have to be complicated, after all.
