Titania
Design
Vegetable Trance Fashion
Titania Design is a Swedish alternative
fashion label with roots in the Psy Trance
scene. The label was established seven years
ago by Linda Ljungberg, who does everything
from design to sales and administration.
Titania Design brings out a new collection
every year in connection with the European Psy Trance festivals in the Sum-
mer. This year’s tour included Antaris Project, Fullmoon Festival and Vuuv in
Germany. You can also find Titania‘s creations at the onlineshop www.titani-
adesign.com. The beautiful website is made by Amrit, L.I.S.A.
The last collection was produced in Nepal and includes among other materials
organic hemp and organic cotton. It also contains what has become characteri-
stic for Titania Design: vegetable leather, an alternative to animal leather.
Other typical elements in the clothes and accessories from Titania Design
are beautiful stones and beads, embroideries, dragonflies and patchworks
that together make every piece of design unique.
The name Titania comes from Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s
Dream” and is the name of the fairy queen. It is also the name of the largest
moon of Uranus, that once was so hot it was liquid.

The Loveparade Disaster


...and how it effects also our scene
kann es sein, dass eine derart große

Und selbst wenn es nur eine Kultur der

die für die Zukunft verantwortlich

Genau das haben übrigens die ersten
Loveparades getan.
