The label‘s story begins in Halle, where Sonia Boessert and Brigitte Schorn got to know each other while studying fashion at Burg Giebichenstein University for art and Design.
With their first collaboration they qualified for the prestigious Hyères Festival International de Mode et de Photographi. Since 2006, they’ve been releasing collections twice a year. However, the duo split up in the beginning of 2010, beginning with spring/summer 2011, Sonia Boessert is the only designer behind the label.
The label Boessert/Schorn represents extraordinary items, combining materials with characteristic surfaces and structures especially knitwear in all its variations. Boessert/Schorn worked out special handcraft methods, knit techniques or dyeings, basically inspired by old things, craft and traditional costumes.
The style of Boessert/Schorn is rough, unaccurate and nonchalant, it is fashion without straight lines and classic cuts.
