Launched in 2017, the Marina Willms Fashion Design label features two lines: Marina Willms (couture) and Marina by Marina Willms (ready-to-wear apparel). As of 18 February 2017, both will be available for purchase at www.marinawillms-shop.com. The online shop offers unique and colourful ready-to-wear T-shirts and leggings for women and men. The ready-to-wear line consists of two standard garments and three limited editions, which will be inspired by the couture line. The complex and detailed couture pieces will be customised and made to order in Germany.
