About

OUR MANIFESTO

Apparel and textile manufacturing is the second largest polluting global industry. This overproduction and accumulation of waste poses a threat to the health of our planet. 
Our purpose is to lead the movement of excess reduction in this industry by connecting sustainability and creativity. 
Our approach is circular: we reimagine what already exists by giving it a renewed life. 
Our responsibility is to work with our industry peers to scale the effort and to further the movement of excess reduction. 
Our commitment is to build a viable, atypical product design and commercial business model that will continue to thrive as long as there is excess to work with.  
Our ultimate goal: to go out of business, leaving behind a planet without waste. 

OUR FOUNDER

Maurizio Donadi

As the driving force behind ATELIER & REPAIRS, Maurizio has been inspired by his 30-years journey in the apparel industry to assemble a concept that weaves his personal affinity to vintage and nomadic cultures with his desire to reconcile the excess he has witnessed, and been a part of, in the apparel and textile industries.

Maurizio brings a unique background of strategically developing and executing global expansion strategies, both creatively and commercially, across brand, product, marketing and distribution for international fashion houses and companies.

 

OUR PRESS MENTIONS

PRESS

"If humble chinos become the height of fashion next spring, credit must be given to Maurizio Donadi, the creative director of Atelier & Repairs, a Los Angeles brand known for its upcycled collection."

"We are not a brand, but an initiative against excess.”

“A limited series with Journal Standard.”

“The concept is centered around jeans and includes a partnership with Atelier & Repairs”

“The basic principle of Atelier & Repairs is very simple...the reduction in excess, caused by overproduction and consequently by the accumulation of unsold and used, through a recovery and transformation activity.”

“'Produce less & repair more' is the idea behind his new enterprise based on the principle to transform and customize second-hand garments into new clothes, accessories and objects.”

“I want to leave behind an initiative that produces and wastes less, making this both a personal and professional endeavor,”

“The vision at the base of Atelier & Repairs is simple and brilliant at the same time: recycling and giving to objects a second life.”

"Our source of inspiration comes from the idea of transforming rather than producing, listening rather than designing, experimenting rather than planning”.

"The motto is clear and shows the ambition : building a brand without focusing on the production of a collection but by offering a repair service."

His [Maurizio Donadi's] answer is Atelier & Repairs – a brand concept revolving around “Reducing excess through fixing, improving, recreating and up-cycling what already exists.”  

“Los Angeles/London-based Atelier & Repairs is an emerging business and disruptive force in the fashion industry, aiming to slow down the rate of production and of waste.”

"One brand’s trash has become your next treasure."

"Atelier & Repairs (the upmarket upcycling outfit with stores in LA and London), serve[s] up some double-take-worthy retooled denim."

"As embedded in the fashion industry as Maurizio Donadi is—he’s worked for major brands and consults for several more—he’s ambivalent about it in general, questioning what it is and why it operates the way it does. Why so much mass-produced excess? And why so serious?"

“Atelier & Repairs’ base principle is very simple: reducing the surplus due to overproduction and consequently to the accumulation of unsold and used stuff through an activity of recycling and transformation.”
