Anna Rosinke and Maciej Chmara designed A Tailor's Ritual to be used for fittings at the Wäscheflott tailoring shop.

The vanity stand comprises mirrors, hangers for clothing and a storage shelf, which all pivot around the wooden frame.

The floor-length standing mirror is used with a circular mobile mirror to allow the customer to check the fitting in the back.

One brass hanger is used to hang-up the mock-up shirt and a second is for the final garment. "Wäscheflott always tailors a trial shirt before making the final one," said the designers.

Tailoring tools such as needles and pins can be stored on the brass shelf.

The design was commissioned as part of the Passionswege project for Vienna Design Week 2013.

The Passionswege project, literally meaning "pilgrimage ways", initiates collaborations between young designers and traditional Viennese companies. Wäscheflott has produced bespoke tailoring in the centre of old Vienna since 1948.
