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. Sustainability in terms of local production, materials and working conditions is an important part of AWS’ philosophy.
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.
