Die Story of Philomena Zanetti
Because Julia Leiffert found no clothes, that fulfilled her vision of aesthetics and sustainability, she began – while she was still a law – student to make her own designs. After graduation, she decided to pursue her true passion and therefore completed her fashion studies. During a lengthy New York-stay, she finally made the decision to start her own label and prove that environmental awareness and high fashion must mean no contradiction. Today Philomena Zanetti stands for pure and timeless looks and the highest quality in compliance with sustainable and fair principles. With the presentation of her autumn / winter collection 2016/17 “Redefining Melancholia” in the me Collectors Room, Philomena Zanetti was represented for the first time at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Berlin and has proved with great success, that sustainable fashion is 100 percent useful for the catwalk. The name Philomena Zanetti is a throwback to Julia Leiferts great-grandmother, who lived in South Tyrol. For the native southern German, the name of her predecessor is a symbol of nature and reflects her enthusiasm for flora and fauna again.
Fashion can be a start for better management be together.

As dedicated vegan she puts even with her label on a non-violence philosophy that excludes the exploitation of man and nature. Julia Leifert waived leather and fur and is always looking for adequate vegan alternatives. Since there are no vegan alternatives for the wonderful natural product wool, Philomena Zanetti uses only pure wool, which is guaranteed won without violence. Long distances are a no go in her company. Accordingly, the designer made a decision for transparent production processes in Germany and Europe. The materials mostly originate from Europe and are GOTS certified or otherwise.
