After Work Studio specialises in outdoor and knitwear pieces that reflects their strong identity. Bold graphics, an undeniable sense for functionality and a mastery of proportions and volumes characterise the Swiss label, who won the Design Prize Switzerland 2019.
All After Work Studio knitwear is p
roduced by Textil AG Huttwil, one of the last remaining Swiss knitting producers. The pieces resulting from this creative partnership shape the signature looks of After Work Studio, contribute towards the preservation of traditional crafts and stand for social sustainability.
Since 2016 After Work Studio is also producing (outerwear, other apparel) at the medium-sized family business SLOWFASHIONFAST nearby Banja Luca, Bosnia and Herzegovina.
After Work Studio was founded in 2016 by fashion designer Karin Wüthrich and graphic designer Matthias Fürst.
Comments of the nominators:
The young label After Work Studio is one of the hopes of the Swiss fashion scene. The designs bear witness to a completely independent formal approach and remarkable design maturity. It’s therefore not surprising that the very contemporary and wearable fashion by this desi
gner duo has already also found international approval – for example in London or Seoul.
Comments of the jury:
The collections from After Work Studio display an excellent understanding of the body and a confident grasp of proportions and volumes. The work by the designer duo is flanked by strong, contemporary communication, which has reverberated around the public attention for the label. After Work Studio stands credibly for a genuine fashion vision and great dedication to its implementation. The jury recognises a substantial potential for success in the young label and regards the award as motivation for the designers to continue to pursue the path they have chosen.
