German twins Daniela and Annette Felder, of London based design duo Felder Felder, today unveil their 10th Anniversary Collection featuring exclusively up-cycled and sustainable fabrics.

The collection’s hero piece is the “Carbon Dress”, inspired by BMW i and created using carbon fibre from BMW’s electric vehicle programme.

Carbon material makes up 97% of the fringe-detailed, metallic grey skater dress, which took over 100 hours to make. The unique texture and shine of the material provides a futuristic finish, which remains lightweight and strong, but is more tactile and daring compared to other fashion fabrics. This combined with the cut of the dress makes it the star of the collection.

The fully sustainable material, not yet available to the fashion industry in large quantities, was created at the same place that produces carbon fibre for BMW’s ground-breaking electric and Plug in Hybrid BMW i cars.

Daniela and Annette Felder comment: ‘The carbon fabrics are amazing and unlike anything we’ve used before – we are honoured to be given access to them before anyone else. The woven fibre allows us to do more with the designs and push the boundaries of sustainable fashion. It adds amazing structure and the frayed carbon looks so great as tassels. We can’t wait to show everyone the collection’.

The wider collection, in the label’s trademark rock n’ roll style, features flash electric motifs and up-cycled garments from their last decade of work. Daniela and Annette Felder will personally present this anniversary collection at an exclusive and intimate VIP dinner on Friday 16th September in London.

This is the second year Felder Felder has collaborated with the pioneers of the electric vehicle, BMW i, to create a more sustainable and green collection.
