ATELIER-MAYER is a concept dedicated solely to the global phenomenon of 20th- century vintage. Inspired by the late Klaudia Mayer, an Austrian haute couture tailor whose atelier was originally founded in 1927 as part of the Viennese Secession movement, the company has updated Madame Mayer's heritage to the 21st century in the form of a luxury e-boutique ATELIER-MAYER.COM, and a gallery showroom in London for vintage fashion lovers, collectors, students, designers and artists. The showroom is open daily Mondays to Saturdays 10am - 6pm.
ATELIER-MAYER is a platform for inspiration, exchange, ideas, and honour of creation, as well as a bespoke emporium based on the highest standard of luxury shopping, with items sourced solely for their excellent quality and unique style.
Behind ATELIER-MAYER is Carmen Haid, a luxury fashion PR with expertise of over a decade in luxury fashion. With her international background she founded the company out of a long time passion for vintage and her desire to pass it on.
ATELIER-MAYER sources exceptional pieces with a contemporary edge from dealers, collectors and specialists around the world for a constantly updated, eclectic mix of rare items to purchase. Visitors are able to source pieces for personal or professional use, which will be promptly delivered in beautiful bespoke and environment-friendly packaging.
In addition, visitors have access to a vast encyclopedic volume of information about designers, decades, icons and all relevant fashion exhibitions, specialist sites and published literature, which are linked to aide research and education.
A separate STYLE MINUTE section features rare interviews with personalities in the fashion industry, such as Yves Saint Laurent, Coco Chanel and Christian Dior. A new OBJECTS D’ART section features small vintage furniture and decorative art, individually curated with provenance, heritage and craftsmanship – all, which tie in with ATELIER-MAYER’s philosophy. The art objects can be viewed at our showroom in London or by appointment in Paris.
