  2. Berlin-based fashion label Starstyling plays by its own rules. Instead of focusing on trends or referring to what the big players of the fashion industry do, founders Kai Seifried and Katja Schlegel have their very own approach.Two people, who are avant-garde in her eyes because they can’t help it, are gallery owners Sven Oliver Ahrens and Bernd Hammelehle. The two joined forces and moved from Stuttgart to Cologne and represent artists like Tim Berresheim, Markus Oehlen and Stephan Jung.

That's the place where the story of Marie and Sophie starts.

The Avant/Garde Diaries is a digital interview magazine that documents personal views on the avant-garde.
Rather than labeling people avant-garde, we try to see through the eyes of people, who we admire for what they do. For each article we ask contributors from the creative field to introduce someone or something they consider to be ahead of time and explain why. The result will be a compendium of various, very personal perspectives that disclose new ways of thinking and spread inspiration.
