Founder: Sandra Winter 🇹🇭 🇩🇪
Sandra Winter, the founder of Sandra Winter the Label, was born in Thailand and grew up in Germany. Her label is based in Germany and was featured on British Vogue. Sandra Winter the Label is a sustainable, slow fashion brand that seeks to empower young women to feel confident and beautiful in their own skin.
Sandra’s birthplace, Thailand, has had a boundless impact on her label and is one of the main reasons she decided to start a sustainable brand. Her visits to Phuket, Thailand, with her father are memories that she holds dear to her heart. She recalled the beauty this country offered with its beaches, towns, and people. The beaches are what she admired most about Phuket. After a few years of visiting her birthplace during her childhood years, she had gone back as a young adult. The ocean was not what it was. Her memories of blue, clear waters had faded and all that was left was plastic-filled, dirty beaches. From this moment, Sandra felt it was imperative to initiate the change she wanted to see. This was the start of Sandra Winter the Label.
“I know with more momentum in the slow fashion movement, we can make positive change in the fashion industry.” (Sandra)
Sandra always had a love and passion for designing and creating clothes. Pulling inspiration from Thailand and the environment surrounding her, Sandra envisions a design and brings it to life. She had applied to study fashion in college but was rejected. She lost hope and the confidence to pursue her passion in fashion design. After a few years, during the pandemic, Sandra started to follow her dreams and became motivated to do what she loves most- creating and sharing her clothing with the world. Today, Sandra Winter the Label has been featured on British Vogue, British GQ, and Condé Nast Traveller.
“I’ve always taken my inspiration from the wondrous and euphoric realms of the earth. The vibrant yet delicate parts of the earth are what I incorporate in my designs. My collections include designs that are simple but have detailed print and vibrant colors that I believe everyone should have in their closet.” (Sandra)
Sandra Winter the Label aims to create clothes for women who love clothes and are conscious about the planet. Sandra creates trendy clothes without harming the earth. She hopes to see consumers make a shift towards supporting the slow fashion movement while starting to think about who made their clothes and where. Sandra Winter the Label is dedicated to building a solid foundation for the slow fashion movement while empowering women to beautiful no matter who they are and where they come from.
