Så här beskriver hon sin verksamhet:
Berggren Studio is a Copenhagen based brand founded by Swedish Tove Berggren. After several years spent in fine arts, Tove entered the fashion world, working with names like Henrik Vibskov, Hussein Chalayan and House of Dagmar, before she started her own label.
Berggren Studio finds perfection in the imperfect and embraces diverse social and visual influences, with an everlasting focus on feminist values. The Studio’s styles are relaxed and leave space for the person wearing them. Eclectic, yet pure Nordic aesthetics characterise the looks.
Prints have a big part in the collections, which Tove creates through playful graphic experiments, turning thoughts and stories into shapes. Her openness and deep rooted interest in everything human is the foundation of the brand.
Though the studio is run by Tove in one person, Berggren Studio stands for all the people who contribute to the complex puzzle of building the fashion brand.
