By Sanne Jansen is a one-woman-show ran by Sanne Jansen.
Sanne Jansen: “I never dreamed of becoming a fashion designer, but my love for textile, 3D-design, drawing, photography and graphic design made me decide this was the best way to combine all of it. It became my way of communicating. Many years later I am still managing all these different parts of the job. From designing and producing the garments to taking pictures and designing the website.”
“The last 5 years by Sanne Jansen was about creating one new outfit every month. It was a step away from the classic ‘two collections a year’, but now things have changed even further. I take my time to design, develop, produce and present each piece when it is totally ready. It can be a garment or a complete outfit and when the time is right it will come out as a limited edition.”
“To add to this story I use my work to stage the stories of women that inspire me. I make their portraits in both pictures and words. It’s an interesting way to get to know these women, hear about their wisdom and their flaws. I talk to them about the way they live their lives, their take on fashion, what gets them out of bed in the morning, and anything else that might come up. These women are like the customers that wear my clothes – optimistic, inspiring, enthusiastic and in the middle of life!”
