Angela Thurnherr is a freelance accessory designer who devotes herself to her own but mostly to collaborative work. After graduating the master program at the “Institut français de la mode” in Paris, the designer worked in internationally known fashion houses like Balenciaga and Vetements, where she consolidated her expertise and skills. Angela draws inspiration from the concept of juxtaposition. It is the transformation from traditional to modern, from everyday to outstanding, that runs as a constant through the designer's work.
In collaboration with ACC. HELVETICA Angela Thurnherr realized the first collaboration of the Swiss creative platform: A collection with the Swiss company Appenzeller Gurt. The collection combines the aesthetic of the 80s and 90s with the craftmanship and traditions of Switzerland. The aim of the collection - Translate the savoir-faire of this Swiss classic into timeless and modern design.
