FONNESBECH

 

Design

Fonnesbech is about good design. We strive to create pieces for the small, long-lasting wardrobe.

We are tired of endless consumption and the throw away culture – and therefore, we’ve created a response. Our mission is to create fashion that combines high quality and craftsmanship with an intelligent take on functionality and responsibility.

Fonnesbech offers premium clothes to professional women – it’s a wardrobe made for individuals that seek exclusive and unique designs with a long-lasting perspective. Our design is based on our vast archive of historic pieces, but is propelled by an innovative spirit in terms of production, materials and cut. We believe that clothing should last for more than one season and we value versatility. Therefore, many of Fonnesbech’s pieces have multiple functions, adding to their value as the wearer can use them in many different ways.

Heritage

Our unique and more than century-long heritage is the starting point of everything at Fonnesbech.

In 1847, Anders Fonnesbech opened his eponymous shop in Copenhagen. As a true visionary, he sold high-quality fabrics, textiles and garters and when his son entered the business, it evolved into a true fashion house – producing own collections and accessories and importing the best fashion at the time. The re-launched Fonnesbech is built upon this legacy.

Responsibillity

Responsibility is at the core of Fonnesbech.

We want to take responsibility for our planet, humans and the environment. We do not wish to preach or impose our vision on anyone, but we firmly believe that sustainable business models and a sustainable approach is what are needed for our future.  That’s why we source the best materials possible and work with a broad range of certified sustainable producers and manufacturers.

Responsibility also means that our products are meant to last, as we want to slow the speed of consumption. Making responsible fashion is a big and difficult task with many different – and sometimes conflicting – perspectives. It’s a core value, but not a dogma. We cherish quality and innovation and put this at the forefront as we aim to present a unique and new brand that caters to the world of tomorrow.
