These clothes shops are standing up to the crisis
It’s not only Bahnhofstrasse that is deserted. Away from the main shopping drag, all our favourite places have been closed for weeks. They are now relying on their online shops – or even delivering your products personally. We check out what’s on offer.
Andrea Hinnen’s fascination with colourful fabrics began at an early age. The designer normally sells her collections from her shop in district 4. During the coronavirus crisis Andrea is delivering clothes to her customers’ homes free of charge. Then she waits outside until the customer has tried them on. Payment is by cash only.
For Zurich local Ursula Meili, Hazel’s Boudoir is the fulfilment of a long-cherished dream. From her boutique at Josefstrasse 26, she sells new retro-style dresses and accessories from the ‘20s to ‘60s. Of course, her shop is closed at the moment, but her retro fashions can still be ordered online.
‘We offer an alternative to fast fashion,’ says Rainer Neusius. Along with Yvette Morkos and Sebastian Lanz, he has been running Zämä in Europaallee since 2015. During the coronavirus pandemic, they are selling fair fashion and accessories in their new online store.
Nina Gschwilm sells sustainable slow fashion at Kari Kari. This means that she supplies quality garments that have been produced under fair conditions – and that are not discarded at the end of each season. The shop near Kalkbreite can’t open at the moment, but you can still shop at Kari Kari online.
