My name is Agnes, and I’m the founder and designer of Agnes Nordenholz.

Born and raised in Tübingen, Germany, I headed to Vienna to become a trained dressmaker and to study fashion design at the University of applied arts in Vienna under Marc Bohan, Helmut Lang and Jean-Charles de Castelbajac.

After 14 years as a co-founder and designer of the label Hartmann Nordenholz, I moved to Berlin to go `back to the roots´ and to continue my work under the name AGNES NORDENHOLZ, Nordenholz being the maiden name of my dear grandmother. One of my greatgrandfathers was born in Berlin. He worked as a merchant in the woolbusiness for one of the biggest European woolcompanies. Another one was a leather tanner and later on trader for leather goods. My mother and grandmother always talked a lot about them and I loved to imagine their lives and work.

It seems natural, that my favorite materials are wool, leather and lambskin and that the sheep is in the center of my attention: Since centuries it offers the most natural and perfect materials and is the best choice for clothing that has a minimal impact on the environment.


AGNES NORDENHOLZ is a slow luxury label founded 2015 in Berlin.
The german born Agnes Schorer is the creative mind behind AGNES NORDENHOLZ.

The brand´s aims are to create products with a „soul“, which resist the fast moving society of our time. Agnes has chosen the tradition of craftsmanship and high-quality materials, which are processed in compliance with ethical and sustainable guidelines in Europe, creating a product with value:

Slow Luxury
