The beginnings of Aurelia & Zwei Frauen date back to 2019. It was then that the sisterly duo founders released their first original designs: blending a twist-on approach to dominant design trends with the comfort of excellent quality and often also with upcycled fabrics.

Their flagship project became kimonos—designed in collaboration with renowned graphic designers and manufactured in Tricity, Poland.

The kimonos have earned the brand immense popularity.

Since 2021, the duo has been creating regular collections of limited series of clothing and accessories, showcased at fashion and cultural events in Poland and abroad. Aurelia & Zwei Frauen represent original fashion in every aspect of its creation— local yet curious about the most intriguing phenomena of fashion design. The stories told through fabrics and garments have attracted renowned media interest (TVN, TVN STYLE, Wysokie Obcasy, Zwierciadło, Polityka), prestigious awards (Forum Mody Polskiej, Łódż Design Festiwal), and recognition of influential charts (Vogue Polska, "Zwykłe Życie").
