About

I am my label, my label is me

The Lena Quist brand is all about celebrating an edgy, unique, personal style. Being your most fabulous, confident, self in an outfit that demands attention, where you make or break your own rules.

Since I started designing clothes at the age of 14 I've always had the dream about couture, and I have always followed my own path, done things my own way, so I knew from the start that a traditional clothing label was not for me. I love creating and being a part of the whole process in the making of the garments. From idea to finished product. I take great pride in my craftsmanship and making the designs myself, instead of mass-producing faceless fashion.

I work only with the finest spandex fabrics, and spend lots of time constructing and perfecting the patterns so that the garments fit the body perfectly. In order to make the advanced designs I've studied couture sewing techniques and found a way to apply them to the stretch materials I use, to give the pieces an exquisite finish. Lots of time goes into each and everyone of these designs and they are made to stand out in any crowd.

The Signature Collection, called The Future Is Now, is the foundation of the Lena Quist brand, where all the elements come together and meet, from the futuristic space theme, to androgynous glam rock and the more relaxed silhouettes sprung from Christian mysticism. These three forms the core of my creative inspiration.

The designs have been seen on stage in acts on Eurovision Song Contest, Britain's Got Talent and in ARROJO NYC's hair shows in Europe and the US, among others. Featured in fashion magazines worldwide and nominated for an Etsy Award 2015.
Famous clients includs Kat von D, Sarah Barthel of Phantogram, The Sounds and numerous other bands and performance artists in various fields.

Care instructions

With all orders you will receive a special care card with instructions on how to take the best care of your garment and how to wash it. Wash care labels are also sewn into all garments in case you loose your care card.

All holographic, metallic and leather-look spandex fabrics will last longer the less they are washed, so try to air them in the window or on a balcony in dry weather to rid possible smell.
When you wash these garments it's with the inside out and in cold water only.
