Scylla & Charybdis is a young label grounded in the artistic principles of haute couture. Beyond creating vessels that adorn and protect the human body, the label challenges aesthetic norms by visualizing the dialog between our internal and external environments. When fashion transcends its elementary boundaries, it can become a means of artistic expression and spawn new aesthetic ideals.
The philosophy behind Scylla & Charybdis is to appreciate the imperfections intrinsic to all human beings and embrace them as a source of inspiration. Human beings, with all of their flaws, become an autonomous work of art through the design process. Scylla & Charybdis takes inspiration from our vast emotional landscape, transforming abstract ideas and emotions into visible and tangible silhouettes.
Scylla & Charybdis is the creative presence of Pia Fischer. Her signature style relies on intricate construction techniques and treatments that manipulate and reinterpret the use of both conventional and unusual materials. Her approach to design is reminiscent to that of a sculptor, whose sophisticated forms effortlessly move between the dark and the theatrical. She holds an MA in Conceptual Fashion Design from the University of Art & Design Halle and currently lives and works near Berlin.
