Who are we

The Fabricant Agency B.V. a legal entity located at Singel 542, 1017 AZ Amsterdam, the Netherlands ("us", "we", or "our") operates the https://www.thefabricant.studio/ Platform. The Fabricant is a digital fashion house leading the fashion industry towards a new sector of digital-only clothing. We specialise in photo-real 3D fashion design and animation. Our work operates at the intersection of fashion and technology, creating digital couture and fashion experiences that are always digital, never physical.
