Fashion manufactory Stajan interprets 19th century everyday wear and uniforms of the K.u.K. Monarchy
On occasion of the first day of the 'Wiener Handwerk' 3-days event on 25 November at Sofiensäle in Vienna, Fashionoffice talked with Paul Stajan (on view at the image right) who represented the collection of the family owned Graz-based fashion manufactory 'Stajan'. Paul Stajan continues in the second generation the work of his parents who established a tailor-made style with focus on art and fashion. Austrian history and fashion that unifies country and urban lifestyle with a modern twist which is expressed especially through the bright colors - from juicy orange over fruity raspberry to fresh green - are significant elements of the current collection. The historical sources are 19th century everyday clothing how it was worn in Styria and uniforms of the K.u.K. Monarchy (Austro-Hungarian Monarchy). Riding jackets (on view at the first image left) are one of the specialties at Stajan. Currently, Stajan fashion is distributed via around 35 shops and the own store in Graz.
