Annette Gortz arrives at i dare to be

The avant-garde fashion designs by German designer Annette Görtz are truly timeless and natural. The focus is on clear cuts and an unobtrusive colour palette, these are the label’s trademarks. The designer uncompromisingly trusts her own signature. Over the development of a natural colour palette that signifies the sense of femininity and timelessness, the Annette Görtz collection is a force against ‘fashion’. It is a concentration of style and an avant-garde aesthetic to compliment the modern-day woman and her contemporary wardrobe. Shop online at i dare to be: https://bit.ly/2lZz8ow
