The studio is headed by Creative Director Michael Ludwig Hittinger, a LISOF graduate with a BA in Fashion Design & Buying. The Micheal Ludwig Studio caters for a wide variety of sizes (South African sizes 28 -50) and ignores the contrast between masculinity and femininity. These ideals, fused with Eastern & African design details, are the root elements used to create each collection for consumers to express themselves no matter their gender identification or size.
Their studio is based in the heart of Cape Town, South Africa. It follows a zero-waste policy where patterns are created to have no fabric waste or the fabric off cuts are kept for later developments such as patchwork, accessories, binding, pocket bags, lining, etc. The production process in the studio has a low environmental impact due to several conscious choices like low energy usage machinery. All their working partners and employees work in an ethical and responsible environment receiving favourable wages as well as benefits to improve the quality of their daily living.
