Aïcha Abbadi is a Berlin-based fashion designer, maker and theorist.

After assisting menswear labels in London and Florence and participating in fashion weeks in Paris and Berlin, she sought to go beyond traditional practice. While dedicated to the discipline and its freedom of expression, she remains critical of the ethical and environmental shortcomings of the industry.

In her work, she explores the boundaries of fashion through materiality and construction methods and seeks to redefine the ways how fashion can be expressed. Interested in the translation of thought processes, her works are materialized short stories that act as comments and questions for discussion.
