My name is Ayla van Maarschalkerweerd, studied at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute, ‘Fashion & Design’ (2012) and I have lived in Amsterdam ever since.

I started &AYLA as a counter-note against the throw-away culture & against the fast, cheap fashion. My ambition is to collaborate with people who have passionated and loving focus on the quality of clothing. I love to take the time to develop the patterns and prototypes in-house to have full control of the construction and fit. 

My atelier is a place where you can experience the develoment of your made-to-order collection-item or your own design, and a place where your wardrobe can find a second life.
