Berlin-based Aïcha Abbadi (*Luxembourg) seeks to dissolve artificial boundaries between disciplines and people.

She holds a BA in Fashion Design from the University of the Arts Berlin where she is currently completing an MA in Design. She sees fashion as a narrative device and is influenced by conceptual art, design, philosophy and the complexities of the human mind and society.

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

In addition to theoretical and practical fashion projects, she is invested in neighborhood initiatives that create shared community spaces and foster active participation.
