One of the pleasures by attending a trade show is the first hand discoveries of not only new collections and trends – but also brands! Girls by Isabell Kristensen.
Danish-born Isabell favours glamours and colourful designs for her hourglass evening wear. The Danish born designer is probably best known for Sheryl’s dress for her wedding to Gazza, a simple confection consisting of 200 metres of peach tulle, topped with 30,000 pearl and glass beads. She also counts Tina Turner, Cher, Shirley Bassey, Shania Twain, Nicole Kidman, Paris Hilton, Katy Perry and Prince as well as the Royal Family of Monaco among her clients.
But now, the mum of four has turned her attention to kidswear, with her new brand Girls by Isabell Kristensen. The brand aims to offer girls age 2 to 12 years sophisticated daywear. The styles are exclusive, understated luxurious apparel for the elegant girl.
Kristensen is married with Danish Kim Worsøe, and the family lives in Monaco but travels frequently to London and Denmark. The designer continues her successful haute couture brand with two shops, one in Monaco and one in London. Isabell has also worked on several major projects, including the wardrobes for numerous motion pictures. She also designed the uniforms for one of London’s leading hotels, The Churchill Hotel, Hyatt Regency. Additionally, she designed a range of jewellery for Georg Jensen. Furthermore, the creative businesswomen has also launched her own fragrance, which was a dream come true for her. Isabell therefore, named it “Dreams”, which soon became the best-selling perfume in Scandinavia.
Girls by Isabell Kristensen are already in selected children’s boutiques around the world, from AW15. Meanwhile, we hope you enjoyed a sneaky preview here of her SS16 collection, as spotted at CIFF kids.
