Elton & Jacobsen

Norwegian designer Solveig Elton Jacobsen showed her debut collection at Oslo Fashion Week in August 2007. She was awarded a prize as Best New Designer of the Season and received a grant from department store Steen and Strøm. Following the successful runway show she teamed up with her sister Åshild Elton Jacobsen to set up womenswear label Elton & Jacobsen. The designers draw inspiration from art, science fiction, drama queens, sport and street style. The collections are a mix of sporty and dressed up styles. Elton & Jacobsen is a member of Ethical Trading Initiative Norway and aim to translate an attitude towards sustainability through the use of quality fabrics and innovative design.
