The German designer and owner behind PRETTIE LANES - Franziska Schlupski (born 1989 in Eberswalde, Germany) started sewing when she was 11 years old and never stopped designing and sewing ever since. During graduation from her business studies, she moved from Germany to Switzerland. After 2 years of business preparation, the self-financed and independent fashion label 'Franziska Schlupski PRETTIE LANES' was launched in 2015 after 15 years of (autodidact) sewing and design experience. Franziska Schlupski leads and cares about every aspect of her company herself - from the design to the material sourcing over to manufacturing the garments and handling all administrative processes - slow, ethical fashion from Switzerland.

Till today, she built up an international trading company with customers in more than 41 countries worldwide and a product palette ranging from day wear & hats to evening couture - A one woman business paving its way towards building  one of the "smallest fashion houses“ in the world.
