C / V, Berlin Ethical Fashion
Corvera Vargas is Maria’s family name, a fashion designer from Bolivia. She set up herself many years ago in Berlin, to open her first shop in 2008 in Friedrichshain. Another one opened in Kreuzberg in 2010, but the current concept exists since 2014. It´s about to create “clothes that are comfortable but at the same time elegant and feminine; to develop a style that is both, timeless and contemporary“. It’s also about being part of the Berlin ethical fashion scene. C / V is a brand for women mainly, even if you can find some very nice items for men in the Friedrichshain shop. Maria is the designer, who works with “five very talented female designers. Everyone involved is wonderful and priceless”. They all have different backgrounds, some from fashion, some from handcraft, and work together to create more or less 10/12 designs per season for both shops.
All made in Berlin, with style
C/V style is feminine, but yet simple. The colors and the patterns are attractive and original, while the cuts are easy to wear. It’s fresh, but yet sensual, it looks natural but it’s also sophisticated. It’s hard to define, but it’s classy! So, depending on shoes and accessories for instance, you could turn one of their dresses from very casual to totally sexy.
Fabrics is obviously a topic at Corvera Vargas: Cotton, wool, viscose, there’s always interesting prints or effects. The labour conditions for workers in the fashion industry is also a big concern for the team, and that´s why everything is sewed in Berlin while the alpaga knitted pullovers are the results of a partnership with a cooperative of workers in Bolivia. ” There is no intermediaries, no profiteering, all the money goes to them.” says Maria who is proud to contribute to Berlin ethical fashion development.
Sizes are overall small, 36/38 but don’t worry, you can ask for recut and actually also for colors and fabrics. The price would remain the same if the work is the same. Talking about prices, it’s also fair, considering the fabrics, the style and how works the brand. So just go and try!
