After studying fashion at The Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, Freya Dalsjø returned to Copenhagen in 2011 to launch her independent womenswear line. In 2012, her debut collection opened Copenhagen Fashion Week, leading to the presentation of her AW13 collection at London Fashion Week, Pitti Florence, Super Milano, as well as, in Shanghai. Freya Dalsjø has since become a staple at Copenhagen Fashion Week, in addition to exhibiting her work internationally, including exhibitions at the National Museum of Denmark, the Danish Design Museum, and Salone del Mobile, Milan, in collaboration with the Danish Arts Foundation. In 2015, Freya Dalsjø was named Designer of the Year at the Elle Style Awards in Copenhagen, as well as being selected to attend the woolmark prize.
In 2018 Freya Dalsjø received the prestigious 3 year grant given by the Danish Arts Foundation.
Freya Dalsjø´s garments are characterised by a strong fascination of women, physical constraints, and social constructs. With a strong appreciation for classic high end tailoring and new technologies, she explores and challenges the boundaries of material, shape, and aesthetic; resulting in a humbled yet irreverent approach to tradition. Together with a small team of tailors, Freya drapes and samples her biannual collections in her atelier, allowing for studied and conceptual collections.
