Lea Fauth has her own studio and lives in the well-known Kreuzberg area of Berlin. For her label LEAF, she is always searching for the special fabric, cut, and detail. Yet even reaching for the exceptional, LEAF offers a balance between the unusual and the everyday. The cut, elegant and even extravagant, is always wearable and practical. Many garments are multifunctional and allow alternations by personal inclination-- buttoned or unbuttoned, reversable, or wrapped. Each piece thus provides many looks in diverse combinations with other garments.
Before Lea Fauth began her label LEAF as the most beautiful project of her life, she worked for a long time with big brand names in Berlin and Paris. There she gathered experience and learned as well about the close co-operation between production countries and delivery systems worldwide which she used to build the foundation for the establishment of her own label at the end of 2013.
Lea Fauth constructs LEAF clothing in Berlin, and works with Berlin pattern makers, assembly masters, hand embroiderers, and also several times through the sustainability council trademarked network NEMONA.
