AWS (after work studio) stands for fashion that [does not have] to be seasonal in the classical sense. Driven by their aesthetic belief of combining feminine elegance with both sporty and classical elements with a focus on functionality, AWS develop collections which are usually smaller series of garments that result in a kind of continuous collection, with a focus on sustainability and local production.

The fashion designer Karin Wüthrich and the graphic designer Matthias Fürst co-founded the brand 2016.

AWS is based in Switzerland and their products are manufactured in Switzerland and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
