QUICKSHOP.NYC

I am the founder of the “virtual New York online store” QUICKSHOP.NYC, which operates from Munich. My clothing brand – HAMANSUTRA, founded 1996 – makes jackets, pants and shirts inhouse, as authentic as 150 years ago. The HAMANSUTRA “clothing works“ is equipped with a formidable array of vintage sewing machines – battered, yet still going strong. I am its heart, as design director, (clothing) mechanic and master technical tailor. As well as clothing with brands from the US, Japan and Germany, my small-scale showroom with minimalist interior carries a selection of handmade shoes with special historical wooden nails in the soles, “Created with Love from New York City and Manufactured in Austria”. There are also accessories, freshly made cosmetics and chocolate. My motto is “No Savings – Only Quality”, because quality outlasts the biggest global trends, and quality is never on sale. My online store was inspired by my vision of the US Army, with soldiers holed up in 8 sqm containers sending drones into war which were controlled from somewhere or other in the world.
