Rising Star: Freya Dalsjø

Earlier this week, rising star Freya Dalsjø presented her take on spring summer fashion and what a show it was. It was a beautiful and coherent display of a dead-cool work, up there with the best this fashion week has seen this season.

Mixing silk with fur, Dalsjø'swork is traditional in its materials but thoroughly modern in its execution. One standout piece that drew lots of attention was the crazy-cool fur embossed sandals. Her prints were bold and strong, too, with warm tones of auburn, blue, and red featuring prominently in the pieces.

The collection was called "Ready to Wear" but it’s not snoozy, typical commercial stuff. Even though she’s expanding and she wants to grab new consumers (which she absolutely deserves), there’s a fine balance between going commercial and maintaining her brand's voice. Last night, she did it with a precision that only confirms further that she’s the one to watch.
