 This fashion and interior label is created by

Tanja Glissmann.  

"I studied fashion design in Hamburg and London and worked for companies like Alexander McQueen and Lala Berlin before founding BLACK VELVET CIRCUS."


Black Velvet Circus (BVC) emerged from a vintage shop founded in Berlin in 2010. The main
inspiration still comes from vintage fashion.

In 2017, Tanja
Glissmann, the founder of BVC, became aware of the craft as a catalyst for creativity through a
German government-funded textile project in Thailand and Indonesia. Since then, she has been using
hand embroidery, patchwork, hand painting and felting to explore the future of fashion and textiles.
The label produces made to order fashion and interior textiles that are sold worldwide, mainly in
Scandinavia, Germany, UK, Japan and America (USA).
