THALSTRÖM is a fashion design brand established in the early spring of 2014. The designer and founder, Kristel Thalström, saw a need for focusing on the traditional workmanship of fashion and wished to create a quality based company. She takes inspiration and knowledge from her vast experiences in fashion. She has a design degree from Parsons Paris School of Design and École de la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne as well as a degree in Art History. During her studies in Paris she took full advantage of the cultural offerings of Paris and its surroundings. She has also gained valuable experience while working at esteemed companies such as Christian Dior, Alexander McQueen and ELLE.
The aim of THALSTRÖM is to start a graceful revolution and to create garments that will last a long time, both in quality and design. With her Parisian experience, Kristel Thalström creates garments with the traditional savoir faire in combination with contemporary design.
“It is a way of not letting the specialized knowledge of construction, draping and sewing be forgotten”, the designer says of her signature idea.
All of the fabrics are weaved in small family owned manufacturers in Italy and the clothes are sewn in Estonia in a factory where tailoring is key. Keeping the production close and exclusive is a mean to ensure quality and minimize environmental stress.
