Young designer Anett Krause combines traditional and modern elements to create extravagant dresses. Her sophisticated designs have already won her a newcomer’s design award early in her career. All her evening gowns are handmade and custom-tailored, with attention to detail; filigree embellishment of the fabrics are her signature detail. Her NOX Lifeline collection features detailed embroidery that shows a bird’s-eye view of the world’s cities.

Inspired by the bright neon colours worn by cyclists, police officers and construction workers, the designer couple behind Neon Neon create fashionable high-visibility vests as well as neon clothes and accessories that people actually like wearing. Each item is produced locally and individually printed.
