Owner and designer at Studio Heijne

www.studioheijne.com

Studio Heijne is a Stockholm based fashion brand which goal is to become the no 1 premium brand for customisable and personal fashion. We want to disrupt the fashion system by taking away standard sizes, producing all orders after demand from the customer only. All products are personalised after her personal size (made-to-measure) and stylepreferences.

As the owner and designer of the brand, I am responsible for all content and execution. I design all garments, source materials and trims, source and lead the production. For the photoshoots I make the concept, cast the models, do styling, cooperate with photographers. I rework the photos in photoshop so they will be ready for publishing. I write all the content on the website, newsletters etc. Publish pictures and text on social media. Arrange the distribution and make budget plans, sales plans etc , etc. Everything it takes to make this brand a successful business.
