Founded in 1998, A Détacher was founded by Mona Kowalska, who views herself more of a curator than a designer. Possessing a refreshing attitude towards her line and the industry as a whole, she is unapologetic in her loyalty to her aesthetic while amassing a quiet cult clientele. A Détacher aims to focus on individual explorations into surface, form, and function. The brand looks to their consumers to give each garment their own spiritual poster and to use them in their own fashion.
Born in Poland, Mona Kowalska received an education in America and Italy where she worked in the fashion industry thereafter. Mona has a passion for the construction of clothing and continues to create her own patterns for the brand.
