Six Designers to Know for Stockholm Fashion Week AW19

Stockholm Fashion Week, running from 4th – 6th February this autumn/winter season, showcases the best in Swedish fashion. You’ll have the chance to see well-established fashion houses as well as exciting emerging designers ready to make a splash. While the festival might be smaller than Copenhagen’s fashion week, there’s a lot of room for experimentation, collaboration, and new brands to make their mark on the stylish city.

These are the fashion brands and designers to know for Stockholm Fashion Week this season:

List Marker: Number 1Selam Fessahaye

Selam Fessahaye’s show last season was one of our favorites in a long time; grand, poetic, full of bright color, and a diverse group of models. This season has a lot to live up to, but we’re pretty sure it’s going to be one for the books.


List Marker: Number 2ORES

ORES is less than a year old, but their classic silhouettes make their clothes timeless. The brand is particularly concerned with textile design and sustainability, creating their own fabrics from scratch using mostly silk and wool. The pieces are minimalist and architectural; it’s a great balance between high-fashion and wearability.


List Marker: Number 3Per Götesson

Deconstructed, gender-fluid, and full of mischief: Swedish designer Per Götesson is making menswear weird again, and we love it. He’s definitely a designer to watch at the moment, and it will be exciting to see what he sends down the runway.


List Marker: Number 4Stylein

Beloved Swedish fashion brand Stylein is back for another season. They always stay true to their core aesthetic – sophisticated, sleek, and elegant – while finding a way to hit trends so that the collection feels timely.


List Marker: Number 5ATP Atelier

With a selection of uber-cool handbags and shoes, ATP Atelier is fast becoming the next major accessories brand for those in the fashion industry. We love their minimalist-meets-artsy style, and can’t wait to see what they have planned for fashion week.


List Marker: Number 6Rave Review

This Swedish brand is taking “sustainable” to the next level; their entire collection is made of recycled clothes. They aim to show that it’s possible to make couture-level clothing from textile waste. The aesthetic is fun, colorful, and irreverent, with nods to swimwear and loungewear. Whether the style is for you or not, their passion for ethical production is inspiring.
