Ess-Elle is a Swedish fashion label created by Sebastian Löjdkvist, and indeed named after his own initials; S.L.
The 19-year-old has already started to make a name for himself, despite being freshly out of school. He has been working with drag shows over the past couple of years and has experience working with Camilla Thulin, one of Sweden’s top designers.
His unusual designs are tailored out of fabrics which are not the norm for other designers, setting him apart from them. The fabrics he chooses are easy to manipulate, enabling his unique cuts and folds to be made possible. The Ess-Elle shapes are bold and daring, highly influenced by celebs such as Lady Gaga.
He told Tellusfashion: “I do not consider fashion as having to be wearable, neither does it have to be pretty, but it is the way we express ourselves and show our personalities!”
Sebastian Löjdkvist is currently studying to become a tailor. For his future plans, he said: “I will make clothes for the superstar elite, and the red carpet will be the home of my designs!”
And we’re sure he will make it!
