Although today it seems like the label has been around forever, ZENGGI was founded by Marian Wigger in 2006. At a young age, Marian started filling empty pages with sketches of designs, inspired by fashion magazines. Not surprisingly, she attended the Art Academy in Arnhem, where her love for fashion was further developed and she was living her dream. After finishing the academy, Marian worked for a variety of Dutch labels. She went on to found and become co-owner of Turnover. A well-known women’s brand, even awarded with a Grand Signeur, one of the most prestigious fashion awards in the Netherlands.

What Women Wear
Marian took some ‘gap years’ after Turnover. This time off inspired her to launch ZENGGI. Her personal philosophy is to do what you are good at, and enjoy! When you love creating new things, developing new concepts and doing so with a team of ambitious people, why not continue to do so with a new women’s label?
When it comes to the ZENGGI designs, Marian’s main inspiration is day-to-day life. ZENGGI items are style made easy. Marian is fond of well thought-out, high-quality, classics. Other words to describe her style are feminine, casual, elegant, timeless and comfortable. Collections are characterized by a mix of soft shapes and powerful pieces. All designs have a sense of uniqueness, as Marian makes sure to add a personal touch to every item.
“I believe in building a wardrobe. And perhaps even taking a lifetime to do so. There’s no need to start from scratch every season. Make sure you have a few great basics to work with and add a new or surprising item to create a unique, and most of all, personal style.”
- Marian Wigger

ZENGGI was one of the first women’s labels to be offered online only. Today, ZENGGI is a brand that is sold throughout Europe and beyond, both online and in a continuously growing number of stores. In 2015, Marian launched a second brand: TRVL DRSS. This brand combines looking good with feeling even better and is especially loved by women who travel a lot.
