When House of Dagmar was founded in 2005, they had a desire to establish a long-lasting business based on a high quality-approach throughout everything they do. High quality contributes to a longer life span for clothes, which is ultimately better for the environment. Over the years, they have learned a lot about which fibers and production methods are better for the earth, and they still learn every day.
Today, as the term “sustainability” is widely known and clearly defined, we need to collectively become more engaged and together make better choices.
Choosing materials and designs that are long-lasting yet kind to the earth, humans and animals are central to Dagmar's business and brand.
For them, this is not only a trend but an important journey. It is an important part of who they are and what they do, it is a part of the Dagmar-DNA.
In 2011 I started an internship at House of Dagmar which soon lead to them taking me on as their technical deisgner. I started of doing pattern and and creating show pieces for fashion shows and photo shoots. As my role developed I started doing flat sketches and measurement lists, soon I was responsible for all the fittings including all the measurements and grading from 1st prototype to production. I learned a lot at my time at House of Dagmar, I was able to follow the entire process from moodboard to final product. House of Dagmar was a small company in an exciting development phase and a perfect place for me to start my carrier.
