We are Tuyet and Nic, two friends and founders of WAYNE & FRIENDS.
Our small fashion studio was created in spring 2020. We come from sport, fashion and design. We exchanged our opinions and ideas about fashion and a conscious lifestyle for a long time and intensively. Our idea is to work with existing clothing and materials as best we can. We want to help second-hand clothing to flourish and give garments a personal connection.
Through upcycling and redesign, we want to use what already exists and conserve resources. The history of vintage clothing and many of the styles have their own charm that we particularly appreciate. It is important to both of us to incorporate mindfulness into all designs and to consciously emphasize the inner beauty of all people, because that is what matters most to us.
To convey a sense of deep joy, inspiration and appreciation for the things we own and love to wear. Something we can enjoy every day. Giving meaning to clothes through love and care. We are convinced that if our work is important to us, it will also be appreciated by others.
The name WAYNE & FRIENDS
...comes from the playing bats that come out every sunset when the horizon begins to glow in warm colors and we can admire their happy activities in our backyard. Bats have been called that by households in our area for a long time. This soothing and graceful setting, in the middle of a big city, inspired us to design our work with this beauty in mind.
