About THE DESIGNER
I was born in Sweden, where the fashion motto is "Less is more." Think classic, clean lines to austere, androgynous street wear. Coming from a country with high fashion awareness, I developed a strong interest at a early age.
During my college years, I moved to Ireland where I studied art, design and animation. The creative people around me opened up new doors, and it was here I joined a rock band. As a bass player, I was surrounded by musicians in the rock scene which gave me inspiration for my current designs. We toured the U.S. for two years, and I realized that designing clothes was my future calling.
After my band split, I left the U.S. for Vancouver. There I discovered a deeply rooted love for country western and rock. I set up a sewing studio and spent crazy long hours drawing, sewing, cutting and creating. My partner, whom I met through music here in the U.S., played a big role in me landing my first commissioned job creating stage clothes for a country artist.
This led me to move to the heart of country music--Nashville, Tennessee--and to pursue fashion design full time. One job led to another and my hard work started slowly to show dividends. The more time I spent here, the stronger the rock style grew. I have been blessed with a few amazing jobs and I will continue creating and growing.
