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. We believe in the connectedness of living beings and nature and work towards a responsible circular economy that respects the environment and all of its life.

Iso.Poetism by Tobias Birk Nielsen

ISO.POETISM BY TOBIAS BIRK NIELSEN, the corporeal manifestation of Tobias Birk Nielsen inner odyssey through life, begins its journey in 2017 emerging from the danish mists. Through the use of a poetic lens, former Wood Wood & Boris Bidjan Saberi design trainee, and MA Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts graduate, Tobias Birk Nielsen seeks to depict the reality of surviving the trials that life throws at all of us. Meticulously designed in Copenhagen, Denmark, and crafted in Italy, using only the finest Korean & Italian fabrics, ISO.POETISM BY TOBIAS BIRK NIELSEN believes that garments stand for so much more than just a sellable product. Rather than creating just any other material possession, it aims to create artefacts that will comfort the client.
