After 3 years of study at Esmod Oslo, I graduated in the spring of 2015, awarded "concept of the year" with my diploma collection called "Putin is the New Jesus of 2026", a political satire about my best friend, the Russian President. I thereafter wandered to London to intern, and after a short-but-sweet period in the creative capital that is London, I returned home, eager to start my own brand in Oslo.
Knowing little to none about the works of the fashion industry, I jumped head first into the creation of my label, focusing on a brand concept and visual identity. With a longstanding tradition of "fucking up gender norms", London inspired me to focus on the genderless aspect of clothing, and Flesh was born in 2016.
Derived from the word "body tissue”- our baby Flesh - has a visual identity rooted in the meat industry (minus the aspect of actual blood, yuck),
and we take huge inspiration in how food is packed, enjoyed and how it feeds the body - and how I sometime in the future would be able to feed the souls of future flesh customers with our funky and genderless products.
Since 2016, I've had the pleasure of working with different interns in the studio. Currently, I'm accompanied by two apprentices, Jenny and Gyda. Say hello to our small, but meaty team!
At the moment we've experienced an increased amount of internship and apprentice applications, sadly because of the uncertain times ahead we're not able to accept any new nuggets at the moment. We're sorry!
