Maximilian Rittler, a 29-year old menswear designer from Vienna, was always fascinated by fine arts and drawing in particular. He worked with many materials and experimented with lots of techniques long before he was interested in fashion. Within his technical educational background in Vienna, he learned patternmaking, constructing and making of garments, drapage, shoemaking, knitting, millinery and printmaking, before moving to Antwerp to improve his creative process. Last year he graduated from the Antwerp Fashion Department with a 100% upcycled collection. Since then, he participated in London Fashion Week and is nominated for the Hyères festival 2020.
