Carni is a new Berlin-based fashion label that launched in January 2010 with a runway show of its debut collection of jewellery and accessories at the .HBC Couture: Designer Scouts event.

Carny is a term that became popular in the early 1930s in North America. It describes the people who work for a carnivale – a funfair that travels through the country. Carnies were not just the people employed to build up the booths and rides, but also the ones working the stages: Magicians, erotic dancers, sword swollowers, snake tamers, bearded ladies, psychics, and all the freaks you can imagine who dared to turn their unusual nature into an attraction.

The first collection features an extravagent range of delicate harnesses, necklaces and bracelets made out of leather, silver, acrylic and ropes. Every piece is unique and daring and will turn its wearer into an attraction himself.
