Production of the collection // Tights-collaboration // Covering the costs of the clothes development and campaign expenditures
We want a more fair and equal treatment by the fashion industry concerning people whose body measurements deviate from the usual proportions and standard dimensions.
The fashion label Auf Augenhoehe develops and designs fashion for little people affected by dwarfism and offers a forum of articulation for them. Auf Augenhoehe tries to lead this neglected topic out of its niche existence into society and offers space to think about the meaning of fashion and design.
Until now no international standard sizes exist for people affected by dwarfism. Because of this Auf Augenhoehe is working on the development of these sizes to integrate them into our collections. Auf Augenhoehe represents individual fashion with perfect forms and patterns. Our design is focusing on timeless beautiful looks.
The following special features are included in our collection:
The collected funds are used for:
Our goal is to get as many people excited about our idea as possible. For us, it does not matter if you are of short stature or not. Because together with you, we want to put our social vision of the establishment of little people in the fashion world into practice - a topic that we think is currently neglected too much in society! We also offer our expressively designed goodies to people who are not of short stature, e.g. our unique clothes hanger or our premium sports bag, designed by Furkan Altun or our cuddly porcelain mug Touch! made by Kahla.
But of course our project is especially aimed at all the little people who, due to their proportions, have only the children's department at their disposal, which does not live up to the fashionable aspirations of an adult and to little people who no longer feel like spending their valuable time at the tailor but want to wear fashion that looks good and simply fits.
That’s easy. We can only make a difference in the fashion world together with you. We are positioning ourselves against the neglect of the fashion industry towards people whose body measurements deviate from common proportions. We want to make history with you when we release our first collection for short women and men, into which we have incorporated all of our research findings from the past four years. More reasons can be found below:
The only one who is missing is YOU! Support us with a sum of money and choose a great goodie!
The intended funding goal enables us to produce the collection with high-quality and fair tailoring. Depending on the final demand, we either rely on our familiar tailoring network in and around Berlin or work together with fair and high-quality production sites throughout Europe.
If we do NOT reach our funding goal , all supporters will get their money back in the full amount.
Transparency is important to us. Below is an example of a pair of chino pants showing how the prices for our different garments are made up.
This leads to a price of 120 € for a pair of chino pants including VAT and shipping costs for Germany.
***For shipping to other EU countries (11€) or international countries (20€) respective awards have to be added.***
Sema Gedik is a passionate fashion designer and has been working on the project Auf Augenhoehe since 2013. Her collections have already been presented at Fashion Week Berlin 2015.

Laura Knoops is a graphic designer and responsible for branding and marketing at Auf Augenhoehe.
