Michaela Buerger is a Parisian fashion designer.
From a very early age, Michaela Buerger has known how to knit ; this skill has been passed on from mother to daughter for generations.
With this savoir-faire, she has built a fashion house of hand knit, and her collections use hand knit pieces in innovative and fun ways that have never been seen before.  She unexpectedly inserts intricately and impeccably conceived hand knit pieces–produced by 200 women in the former Yugoslavia countries–into wardrobe classics: sweatshirts, t-shirts, shirts, denim-wear and since 2016 a kids-wear line joined the collection.

A former student of Raf Simons at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna, her unique hand knit style is today chosen internationally by the most influential buyers. Designed in Paris, Ms. Buerger’s creations are now available at Le Bon Marche Paris, Shopbop.com, Isetan Tokyo, 10 Corso Como Seoul and at other fine boutiques around the world.
