Vintage shooting with Julia Seyfarth Design

Ready for taking pictures

I first worked with the lovely and creative Julia Seyfarth in 2017. I was going monochrome for a long time, black and white, a few coloured details at most. But through Julia’s influence and her vintage fashion in bright colours, I was inspired to create new radiant creations.

Julia provided me with her fabric cuts and I made perfectly fitting headdresses. What was still missing was a proper vintage shooting …

Who made my clothes? I made your hat! – About sustainability in fashion

Romy Marienfeld Owner Faunauge for Sustainability in the Fashion Industry

Faunauge for theatre and film

Koch Kostüm von Faunauge

Although my background in designing jewelry for Faunauge often comes from the black scene, the most important part of my personality is theatre.

In this blog post I give some insight into my previous work for theatre and film. I was allowed to rework a huge collection of unsightly hats from a theatre fundus, build funny bumblebee wings or even run the entire costume for a Christmas fairy tale production.

Upcycling – Faunauge and sustainability

The enemy of the garment - the friend of the upcycling specialist- the scissors

The awareness of upcycling and sustainability within our consumer society is steadily increasing. After large factories have been collecting material for decades in order to reprocess it, a similar process is making its way into domestic households. If an old object no longer finds a use in its original purpose, it is changed and upgraded. Upcycling, a movement that is certainly familiar to every tinkerer:in. Faunauge also makes use of this trend and exploits the advantages it brings with it.
