Sustainable Designer Anke Wonder

Guten Tag und Willkommen!

I am a German Fashion Designer and believe that the Fashion Industry today can do better regarding its social and environmental impact. In August 2018, love brought me from Germany to one of the most German cities in America: Milwaukee, WI. Now I call Milwaukee my new home.

I studied Fashion Design in Germany and graduated with honors in 2017 with a Bachelor of Arts. I have participated in several Fashion Shows and I am proud of my first American participation at the MKE Fashion Week 2019.

I founded Anke Wonder because I saw the need for sustainable fashion in bold colors and lively patterns. Even though I believe in a minimalist wardrobe, I also believe that it can be as colorful and fun as we like it to be.

With that vision in mind, I personally created fabric patterns which are prints of original acrylic paintings, making Anke Wonder garments a piece of wearable art. Each collection focuses on focuses on timeless clothing that you can’t wait to wear.

Each garment is also sewed as a miniature version that fits any Barbie or Ken sized doll using the leftover fabrics. The small sized outfits don’t just help to reduce the textile waste but also make a beautiful designer piece.

Anke Wonder was founded to inspire as many people as possible. Therefore my designs are also on platforms with international reach, so you can enjoy Anke Wonder designs on mugs, clocks, notebooks and more.

My passion for combining fashion and art has many facettes. Did you already discover my hand-embroidered acrylic paintings? Hand-embroidery was one of the first sewing skills my grandma taught me as a young girl.

Because painting digitally and on canvas, paper and fabrics plays a big role in the Anke Wonder brand, I was asked to paint outside murals. If you have an outside facade or indoor wall that needs some color or catchy design, I am here to make your ideas come true.

I want you to shop at Anke Wonder knowing that I will always continue taking further steps to create healthier and eco-friendlier clothes that align with the brand's sustainable mission and that you can trust.

The Brand Anke Wonder focuses not only on sustainable but also vegan garments because I believe that animals don’t belong in our clothes. 

In order to reduce climate change effects, it is desirable to switch to a vegan diet, which is also healthier for humans. You can find my favorite plant-based recipes as part of my journal articles.

Therefore, my mission is to talk in a more intellectual way about Fashion, Art and the Vegan Lifestyle and to use my brand as a vehicle of education to create a more colorful and better future for the planet.
