Gunda Hafner ltd is an eco conscious, high quality, handmade, ready to wear women's clothing line which is produced in the UK.
We aim to use natural materials carefully sourced, focusing on materials such as cotton, wool, silk bamboo, linen and cashmere depending on the season. We are determined not to use any real fur or leather so no animals are harmed in the process. The fur like look is created by using wool rather than synthetics. Synthetic fur or fleece when washed releases tiny particles that are too small to be filtered and therefore end up in the water cycle. Cotton is a low allergenic material that allows the skin to breathe. We use fabric with low percentage of Spandex in order to enrich the quality of our garments where necessary. Leather substitute unfortunately will always be synthetic.
I went to a College for Fashion and Design in Vienna, studying fashion design, pattern cutting and sewing and tailoring. I spent time at Central Saint Martins and the Royal College of Fashion attending courses for personal and fashion styling as well as courses in colour consultation.
Having personally been affected by allergic reactions my focus is on enhancing the quality of living. With my products I will make an effort to contribute to well being with regards to the quality, the colours and the cut.
