FASHION FOR LITTLE PEOPLE – CLOTHES THAT FIT – #beAUFAUGENHOEHE

Sema Gedik learned from her cousin Funda, who is a little person herself, how difficult it is to buy clothes. Was there not a single label offering clothes for little people that want to participate in fashion and lifestyle? She met with more and more little men and women and then decided: this must change. After several years of researching ready-to-wear sizes for little people and building a strong community, she officially founded the label AUF AUGENHOEHE in 2017
