My passion for making clothes started late in life; I began a study in fashion and design when I was already eighteen. Untill then I hadn’t even touched a sewingmachine!

I love creating items that might seem casual at first sight, but stand out because of subtle details. My colours and fabrics are uni and basic (I keep coming back to those blues and greys) I set out to make timeless fashion that lasts a long time. A design always starts off with the thought 'I'd love to wear that!'; I don't create anything that I wouldn't enjoy wearing myself.
