Klezinski (kla-szin-ski)

A multi-disciplinary design practice based in London and Melbourne, (re)established in 2010 by brother / sister team Tim Tropp & Willow Berzin as tribute to their great-great-grandfather, a highly respected tailor of the late 19th Century. Hyman Klezinski was a tailor from Byalistock, Poland who moved to London in the 1870's to further refine his craft in Savile Row, he moved his shop to Collins Street in 1876, where his client list grew to include the elite of the city, including the Governor of the Colony of Victoria. Making a stand against throwaway culture, Tropp & Berzin founded Klezinski in honour of their pioneering great-great-grandfather. Klezinski reinstates a name that was lost to history, and continues the proud tradition of bespoke & hand-crafted apparel with timeless style - hand-made techniques using quality materials.

Full Circle is the first fashion film for Klezinski. The film is a creative collaboration between film-maker Callum Cooper, sound artist John Kassab and Klezinski and showcases hand-crafted fashion pieces from its first range. All clothing and accessories in this film are created by Klezinski.
