Control Studio

CONTROL is an unisex, minimalist, comfortable and elegant ready-to-wear brand. 

 

Control-studio-kisskissbankbank2-1443506930

 

Founded by Mansour Badjoko wa Lileko, La Cambre and Institut Français de la Mode gradute.

 

" When I started earning money, coming from a modest upbringing, I was thrilled and excited to be able to affrod some pieces I fancied. I spoiled myself and bought a really well cut bomber jacket. After a little while, I realized that even if I spent more, the quality didn't really improved. I was outraged and decided to make something about it. This is how Control Studio was created." - Mansour

 

With a strict design aesthetic, the STUDIO create garment and accessories suited for the daily life.

With a strong focus on minimalist and gender neutral clothes, the STUDIO designs piece that last more than a season.

The garments and accessories are design with the final customer in mind, comfort and elegance are observed during all the design process.

 

The garment production is located in Belgium, in Europe or in severely monitored factories, in order to guarantee the well-being and wages of the workers.

 

We try to work with sustainable fibers, recycled or upcycled fabric (salvage from dead stocks) and use mindful and ecological production process.

 

We collaborate with the best factories, to guarantee quality and defend an unique crafstmanship, here in Europe.

 

Style and quality with a honest price.

Fashion is a middlemen business. Every step, there is an associated costs directly passed on to the customer. We think it is unfair.

 

That is why, from now on, we chose direct retail.

 

This distribution system guarantee honest and affordable prices for our customers.

 

We take advantage of years of experience in luxury houses, to offer it at a reasonable price.

 

CONTROL aims to set new industry standards and involve the customers, in order to have them make informed purchases.

Allocation of funds

 

After setting up the production process, design the collection, the packaging and the website, we need your help.

 

Today, we need 5000€ to launch the prototypes with the factories and to produce the first pieces.

 

After a first collection and a capsule collection which convinced many clients: shops and private clients alike; CONTROL STUDIO is preparing a more ambitious and wider collection. 

 

Why do we need prototypes?

 

Prototypes are the first pieces made by the factory, from our patterns, in preparation of the production.

This is the step where we fin tune the cut and the finishings.

 

This stage is expensive because factories charge 2 to 3 time the production costs.

For example, a jacket that costs 100€ to produce, will cost 300€ for the prototype.

This is a very important development stage, as it help us set our selling prices.

 

We made the patterns and the first prototypes, in our Atelier, in order to present an exclusive preview of the collection, at Wiels on September 19th 2015. 

 

Fashion show video, here below:

 

 

We take the opinions of our customers seriously, we are expanding our collection, previously targeted at men to woman, becoming a unisex brand.

Because 30% of our customers for the first collection were women.

 

Every pieces are numbered, we are brutally honest about the quantity we produce.

We don't entertain a fake sens of rarity.

 

We give all the information to the customers to make an informed purchased.
