Immerse yourself in the quintessence of summer sophistication with our AIKO dress, a testament to the unique craftsmanship of HORROR VACUI. Celebrating our signature elements—scalloped edges, traditional froschgoscherl detailing, and meticulous pin-tuck stitching—each embodies Anna’s distinctive design ethos. Crafted from the finest lightweight premium cotton and adorned with exquisite floral prints, the AIKO dress marries tradition with contemporary elegance. The sleeves delicately embrace the elbows, enhancing its refined allure. Notably, the skirt is fully adorned with pin-tucks from top to bottom, lending the garment a distinctive volume and feather-light elegance that are quintessentially HORROR VACUI. Perfect for transitioning from day's ease to evening's grace, the AIKO dress captures the spirit of modern luxury with a deep appreciation for heritage.



The scallop edge hem, a distinctive hallmark within Anna‘s collections, stands as a testament to HORROR VACUI’s unparalleled craftsmanship and artisanal excellence. Meticulously shaped by the skilled hands of our artisans, each scallop is a symphony of precision and dedication. This handcrafted technique transforms the ordinary into extraordinary, revealing a nuanced artistry that transcends the constraints of mass production.

In our atelier, each edge of the fabric is intricately cut with precision, employing scissors to gracefully shape the rounds. The process is elevated with a meticulous finishing touch—fine stitchings that trace the curves with exacting detail. This labor-intensive technique encapsulates the essence of handcrafted luxury, ensuring that each scallop becomes not just a design feature but a tangible masterpiece.

The result is not just a scallop edge; it is a tactile poetry of skill, and a luxurious signature that defines the distinct allure of HORROR VACUI garments.


The Froschgoscherl, originally adorning the bodice of a Dirndl—an emblem of traditional Bavarian attire dating back to the 19th century—stands as a pinnacle of artisanal finesse. Within our atelier, this meticulously handcrafted technique emerges as the pièce de résistance, embodying the epitome of ornate artistry.

The Froschgoscherl unfolds as a box-pleated garland trim meticulously crafted by the skilled hands within our atelier. This intricate process commences with the creation of a ribbon from the fabric of the garment. Each box pleat, a testament to precision, is meticulously folded from the ribbon and delicately pressed into its rightful place, transforming the material into a cascading symphony of texture and form.

As the process continues, the opposite midpoints between the leading edges of the pleats are delicately lifted with needle and thread and connected with a knot. This process is repeated with every pleat, invoking a dance of meticulous stitching. This handcrafted technique, reminiscent of the meticulous practices of Alpine costume, elevates the Froschgoscherl beyond a mere adornment—it becomes an ethereal manifestation of luxurious craftsmanship, a delicate ode to the art of creation.
